If Bill Gates says so…

Brrrrrr. It’s freezing cold here with  lots of snow, school closing, and howling winds. Hello February.

Just because it’s dark and cold and the big gift giving holidays have passed,  you don’t have to stop giving or receiving gifts. February is really an excellent time to be extra friendly to yourself.

Start with a gift from you to you. How about permission to drop, “I should be able to do this alone?” If you don’t believe me, check out this 1.25 minute video of Bill Gates  telling you the very same thing 🙂

Then get a gift from me too:  Permission Granted: Move Into Change With Your Own Approval here.

And another one, this lovely poem…

All I live for is now
All I stand for is where and how
All I wish for are magic moments

As I sail through change
My resolve remains the same
What I chose are magic moments

Because ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are made for
The mind could stretch much further
But it seems that is not what our minds are trained for

We call for random order
You can’t control Mother nature’s daughter

Ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are built for

The witch hunter roams
The scary thing is that he’s not alone
He’s trying to down my magic moments

As we sail through change
Ride the wind of a silent rage
And sing laments of magic moments

Wednesday Words: Billie Jean King

Self-awarenessSome people learn about themselves in the crucible of competition. Others- through taking risks in as many different ways as there people on this big green earth. Exhorting people, locker room-style, to become champions isn’t my thing. But getting in touch the whole-hearted conviction of a champion, and becoming curious about inner experience – yours and mine- is.

What do you think Ms. King meant with her words? Even more important,  do they mean something to you?

Leave a reply. I’d really like to hear from you.

Something New

Being afraid isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes you need that trembling feeling to remind you how exciting it is to be doing something new.               – Jim Lewis –

I feel this way today. Aiming, trembling, wanting, ready with tools in hand.

If you like this, please share. Thanks.
