So I think I lost my voice for awhile. It has a been such an awesome and busy summer but in all the doing and celebrating, I stopped listening for my own voice. Not the outside voice that is working just fine. My inner voice that helps me to know what I really want and knows what is true. There is a stream of other voices distracting me from what I want, making me think instant gratification is going to bring meaning. Well that hasn’t worked and neither has comparing myself to other people.
When I coach, I am either mining for meaning or stepping up for growth. When I am like this I am just spinning in circles. Things are flat and one dimensional. How do I get myself back to living and thinking in directions, pulling from that gold mine of knowledge inside of me and grabbing those opportunities that the universe presents to me? I make art and I see it. If I sit in my one dimensional space I don’t give myself much space to grow or let things in. When I stretch that spiral, I have so much more space. It feels riskier but also so much more space to explore. I get more excited and more motivated to on that path.
It is time for a change of mind. Time to commit my time to reaching past the safe and familiar and stretch to see how big my world can be.
