Daily Nugget #168
do you show up?
do the people in your life show up?
does your life show up?
what a wild ride i’ve been on.
my life and everyone in it keep saying ‘YES!’
‘wait, actually no.’
i’m totally not exaggerating.
my life keeps saying no.
i think the curse has been broken!
i got 2 yeses
i got 3.
that’s a freaking record.
so i can stop talking about ALL of the no’s now.
i’m done with no’s.
i got really skilled at receiving them
i even started to expect them.
on to ~Showing Up~
do YOU show up?
do you show up when you feel like it?
when it’s convenient to you?
how important is an agreement
do you quickly shift
when a better offer comes around?
let me give you a little background.
i live in the land of non-committers.
i know there are a few rare committers out there
but for the most part
many of you
who the hell knows.
i think it might be a dis-ease
why is it hard to say yes?
why do we hold back until the last minute?
i am challenged with this phenomenon.
do i know any committers?
yes! thank goodness.
i love them for it.
i don’t really know why i’m rambling about this.
i am freaking thrilled that my no curse has been broken.
a series of 3 yeses is sure fire sign.
and the other part
is that i’m still reeling about all the ‘yes! actually no'(s)
that i received all summer.
i just auditioned for a modeling gig.
that’s up there with the rodeo
building a fence
doing an overnight horse trip
on the ever growing list of things
that i’ve never done before.
my life is starting to land
as i’m about to take off for another hemisphere
my new website is coming together
as i re-materialize
in to my new form
my upgraded form of me-ness
in this now-ness.
i ask myself often,
‘do i show up?’
i’m not sure a day goes by that i don’t!
i show up. i pay attention.
i try new things. i prove my judgments to be wrong!
i lean in to my edge and do things out of my comfort zone all of the time.
i’ve realized that that is the place where i feel most alive.
where i grow and expand and know myself better
by doing things that aren’t my norm.
it totally throws us off
to just be spontaneous
gosh, we get so comfortable.
but is comfortable really comfortable?
do you show up?
do you show up fresh and new and different?
ready to try something different?
ready to experience something new?
ready to see how you behave in new-ness!
we’ve been ‘training’ to be us
for our entire life.
it’s hella fun
to throw ourselves in to a new situation
see what we come up with.
show up, people!
show up powerfully
with a smile.
life is supposed to be awesome.
