Tales of a Double Virgo
‘i was on Cloud 9,’ he said.
i got to thinking.
why does the 9th cloud
describe this state of elevation and bliss?
we used to turn to Dewey Decimal!
actually refers to the cumulonimbus
which rises 6.2 miles
the highest a cloud can be.
can you think of a time(s) when you were on
~ Cloud 9 ~
grab your journal or calendar
if you have one
maybe you are one of those peeps
who remembers everything.
sift thru your year
how was it?
did you do anything new
do anyONE new?
did you lose something
or several somethings or someones?
did your world get rocked?
did your system receive a shock
that rewired your entire BEingness?
did you realize something about yourself
that caused you to take action
and make changes?
did you follow a dream?
or a job?
or a lover?
did you take that vacation?
or buy that car?
did you stick to
the resolutions from the end of 2015?
it’s easy to look
with a critical eye
@ all of the things
that are suck-ish
harsh on ourselves to
were there any of those?
when was the last?
do you want more in 2017?

there are still a few days left in 2016!
if you are like most humans
you tend to dwell
emphasize the ‘bad’ stuff
the hard stuff.
it wasn’t until JUST NOW
that i realized there was more than failure
and dealing with conflict in 2016.
some really cool stuff happened.
now it’s your turn.
flip thru your calendar, journal or brain
month by month
see what stands out.
some pretty cool stuff happened
in amongst the hard shit.
reflect on this past year.
see where you might want to make some changes.
when did you see or feel yourself shift?
we are all learning
ALL of the time.
celebrate these last few days of 2016.
how far you’ve come.
focus on the reflection and celebration for now.
what does Cloud 9 mean to you?
did you have any C9 moments? want more?
use this exercise to assess where you ARE right now
we’ll take it a step further.
and to 2016,
i am thrilled to see you go.
you rocked my world.
