Spirituality is art

Timing (luck) is when preparation meets opportunity.

Spirituality is art.

Imagine the creating involved in order to love something or someone by letting them go.

Surrendering to what you want and hope for in order to allow someone else to follow the path they choose, which can be vastly different than your path.

The generous art of daily surrender, starting with self.

Journey On

Tough calls are easy

Six hours after a planned volunteer food delivery opportunity, we found ourselves at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. i was on the opening team here, in 1990.

No volunteer opportunity yesterday.

Why?

Things happened that made our decision easy.

Of course, it was not what we planned on.

We flexed. We adapted. We surrendered.

Thankful for it all and thankful from it all.

Sweet.

What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

You’re only as emotionally strong as this

You’re only as strong as your willingness to surrender.

Often, the things we can’t control and the things we can look the same. Be careful, be focused, and be discilined.

Surrender helps even in small details

selfie stick
Purchased at Apple Store in Maryland yesterday but it accidentally got shipped home. Neither i nor the Apple employee could figure out how to cancel it.

Surrender helps even in small details. Didn’t need to purchase a selfie stick yesterday, but the idea of having one to improve my business videos intrigues me. So in the moment, i made a decision to buy on the spot rather than wait and debate it’s value.

Because it’s small, i knew it would fit in my backpack for the flight home. And, i could experiment with it today on our college visit.

Inadvertently, the purchase was shipped, so i couldn’t leave the store with it.

The quickest solve for this was simply to accept it and let it go.

And miles to go before maturity

Here’s where today’s MidLifeCelebration quote came from.

 

And miles to go before maturity.

We all know patience is a virtue.

Knowing means nothing without execution.

My patience was tested two days ago 15 hours into a 16 hour travel day.

In the most undisciplined, irreverent, and original manner possible…

Learn your shortcomings like you mean it.

Thank you for losing my patience.

It was indeed an undisciplined and irreverent learning method.

Maybe it was original.

How?

Seconds after i hung up the phone with Dorian, i knew i had failed.
