You, Me & Dupree
Originally published May 14, 2014
If you are like me, my clients, family, friends and the rest of the world,
you’ve been through some
the past six months (well more like the past two years, oh heck, since the Fall of 2008!) that has tested, stretched, stressed and made you confront some not-so-pleasant realities about yourself, your life and the people in it.
This meant lots of changes, whether forced upon you from the outside – i.e., having no choice but to move; getting laid off from your job; dealing with a divorce, breakup, or loss of a loved one – or internally, i.e., you were so sick of yourself or your situation that
you had to do something, not the least of which was to change your perspective, or finally accept the reality of how things are
, rather than how you imagined or wished them to be.
The more challenges you have and the more you resist, the worse things get. This has been a time of “go with the flow,” so
whatever you’ve been through, know that it is exactly what you needed to make you stronger and get you to where you need to be next.
A lot of my work is about teaching you to trust yourself,
have faith in the process and possess the patience to let life unfold as it should
– even with those bumps in the road and unexpected twists and turns along the way. As long as you are intimate, honest and honoring with and of yourself while consistently being in action (which is sometimes non-action), whether internal or external, have confidence that things will shake out the way they are supposed to, in time and on time, in whatever form the Universe deems is best for you.
It all starts with knowing and owning who you are, where you’re at, what you truly want, and realizing
you have the power to be the fullest, deepest expression of yourself if only you make it your responsibility and yours alone.
It means we have to grow up.
One of the tools I gave
– which I referred to it as a superpower- was to be grateful whenever things get a little rough. Like those magic words “Open Sesame!,” by simply
focusing on something you can be thankful for, all of a sudden the pressure is lifted
and a metaphorical door or window opens to let in a cool breeze, provide an answer to that riddle, or reveal a hidden treasure.
no matter what you’ve been through recently, make sure you see the gift in the gristle, which is GROWTH
. Give it up with a great big letting go of the past, and exhale heartfelt gratitude for whatever life handed to you, having gotten through it, and embrace all the good you’ve gained and have yet to experience as a result.
survey the lay of the land as the dust settles to sort out who’s who and what’s what
? Give me a buzz and I’ll help you thank that
unexpected messy house guest
who disrupted your home, but in the end left it better off than it was when he got there.
