Is your Mouth of Chi blocked, cluttered or just plain messy? The Mouth of Chi* is a term used in Feng Shui*. It references your front door, the primary point of entry into your home (or office or cubicle), whether you favor that door or another. The Mouth of Chic is much like our physical […]
Lo n’ behold, in the not too distant past, I was invited to deliver a motivational talk for a prestigious company who was hosting a wellness immersion program, to which I wholeheartedly responded, “Yes.”
They asked me what I’d like to call my talk. They needed a [juicy] title for their program. I said, “Blow the Fat Cells Out of Your Mind.” Seriously, folks – is that not that best talk title ever? They wondered, however, if I had a less “out there” (my words, not theirs) title.
“How about ‘Feed your Soul. Change your Weight?’” I countered.
To which they replied, “Great! But could we tweak it just a little bit to “Feed your Spirit. Change your Health.”
I said, “Sure. Fine. Go for it!” And I meant it, because it was a fine title, and I felt that they know their audience, and Soul to Spirit isn’t such a stretch, and I am in the business of surrendering and so I did. Surrender.
Then, the person with whom I was speaking said, “Thanks for understanding.”
“Oh,” she continued, “and we love you. You want you to still be you.”
Good thing, hey? ‘Cause seriously folks, I wouldn’t know who else to be.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. – Oscar Wilde
After the phone call, I began to wonder if my talk was going to be too “racy” for them. What might they think or do when I pulled a “sexy vegetable” out of my bag?
What would they think when I announce that I hear voices and the patron saint of permanent fat removal is my BFF? Will they honk a horn and pull me off stage, call the “white coats” and take me away to the funny farm, or grin n’ bear it and never call me again for another talk?
The wheels of doubt were set in motion. It took me a minute to reel myself in, but I did. And then I remembered the following quote.
We are not here to fit in, be well balanced, or provide exempla for others. We are here to be eccentric, different, perhaps strange, perhaps merely to add our small piece, our little clunky, chunky selves, to the great mosaic of being. As the gods intended, we are here to become more and more ourselves. ~ James Hollis
You are a unique serving, slice, sliver, piece, portion of Life. You are a rarity. Own your distinctiveness. Be eccentric, clunky and chunky!
