Business

Take YOU Over Completely

We slice and dice ourselves into different parts to fit different environments and end up diluting our personalities and power so much that the best someone might get, either professionally or personally, is a lukewarm version of us (we, too, in turn, get a lukewarm version of our life — it’s this lukewarm version that keeps us at least one arm’s length to true contentment and to those feelings of meaning we most want as part of our daily lives).

No loving leader in the world changed it by fitting in or only using part of his or her voice or true expression. We are all leaders (part of what I’ll share this weekend at prison, we are) ~ leading or nurturing families, businesses, corporations, movements, some of which we can essentially call our children (they are our wishes let loose on the world, a  movement if I’ve ever known one). And likely the most important of all – leading ourselves.

Whatever you consider your thing beyond the 9-5 or in addition to it — the thing that you’re madly called to do (what you consider your art, your passion or purpose projects, your use of your wild creativity and/or solutionizing for the greater good etc.) — it all must have (gets to have) the full expression of you baked into it.

That most full expression needs to take you over completely.

YOU, and no one else, need to take you over completely.

Brady Bunch & Drinking Water During Quarantine

In 10+ years on Facebook/social media, this is the second meme I’m posting — relevant + funny (I need the humor)…

The first meme I posted weeks BQ/before quarantine related to the four days I fasted in the wild in July solely drinking water: “I used to think coffee was the grown-up drink. Then I thought alcohol was the grown-up drink. Now I have achieved full enlightenment and know that water is the grown-up drink.”

I know this last one ~> 🍸 <~ has likely changed for a lot of people 😊 and in our next LIVEN livestream [Sunday 9:05am Pacific https://www.facebook.com/michelleghilottimandel], Josh and I might just tackle the subject and tell you our story of doing the complete opposite…it’s been awesome and so interesting!

More Wrinkles, Close Your Eyes & Breathe

All the markings found on our bodies can be gorgeous reference points and honest representations of what we’ve taken in, and of all we’ve let go.

What we’ve held onto or let go, what we tend to call good or bad, is exactly as it is and needs to be.

It’s brought you here, sitting in the passenger seat of a car, with age the sage inside, giving you back thanks for *not* being the passenger in your life…

“All” We’re Left with IS Connection.

The good news or reality I keep connecting to after each additional FaceTime, video or zoom (last one on this past Tuesday with my Compassion Prison Project prison team) is this ~> “all” we’re left with IS connection.

Quarantine needn’t mean isolation and yes, virtual may not be your cup of tea, but we were made to adapt, flex, shift and to be able see the possibility inside change, especially right now.

We still have it (connection).
We still have each other.
