The Queen of Reinvention

When you look in the mirror, who do you see?  Not ‘what do you see”?  Go beyond appearance….way beyond…go inward. What does this person think, feel, say and do?  Does that contribute to the makeup of their identity?  Perhaps. How about their history?  Not so much, as I like to remind people “Your history is not your destiny.”  We each have the right to create our lives in our own image. Awesome responsibility comes with it, since when we do that, we have no one to blame if it doesn’t turn out to our liking.  Many feel they are at the mercy of family, friends, their jobs, the media, the government, God… I imagine that is pretty painful. Never have I allowed myself to feel like a victim of circumstance for any length of time.  I would much rather take credit for my successes and responsibility for my errors in judgment, or as a friend has said “mistakes of epic proportions.”  Even those have been stepping stones to the wondrous life I am living now.

For the first time ever, I have become remarkably introspective, dynamically still and silent when once I was a whirlwind of activity, a tornado of thought, sucking everything up into the funnel to be dumped into my ceaselessly busy buzzy brain. Sighing a lot.  Dreaming a lot. Staring into space a lot. Aimlessly wandering  a lot. That would have been unthinkable before. How silly to believe that the world would stop rotating on its axis if  I did. How arrogant to think I had that kind of power. How rewarding it is to take pause. As I do that, all that I have desired is coming into my life. The inner peace I have so desperately wanted surrounds me. The abundance in all areas splashes over me. The from the heart relationships are deepening.

I barely recognize the woman in the mirror; I even look different. Softer, calmer, more present. Taking one breath at a time. One step at a time. Almost one thought at a time; admittedly, there are still some vying for attention, but I have been asking them to wait their turn and sometimes they do.  As I do, life gets easier. As I listen to my inner guidance,  I am able to attract with little need to pursue what I want. Of course, I still set intention and take inspired action, but it is less insistent and more surrendered. Such a sense of peace accompanies it.

 

I like it that way as I become the Queen of Reinvention.  God has indeed ‘saved the Queen’ as she savors her new life.

For All That We Are
'To be witnessed and embraced for all that we are; the good, bad and ugly; as striving human beings daring to reach for the stars, is a gift beyond measure." These words came to me as I was writing a chapter for a soon to be released co-authored book called Embraced By the Divine: The Emerging W

Frozen
Although the movie has been out since last year,  this past week, I climbed up on the sled and took a wild ride with Anna and Kristoff, in the not so wonderful winter-landscape created by Elsa via her out of control emotions.  Frozen (based on the Hans Christian Anderson classic:  The Snow Quee

Life Smoothie
In conversation with my flight attendant friend Jewelee Landis, about whom I have written many times over the years, we were musing about life being like a smoothie. She, like most of us, wears many hats.  Hers- wife, mom, daughter, granddaughter,  friend, doggy and kitty mom and now grandmom to n
