It’s subtle…

…and so easy to miss.

The steam rising from the coffee in your hands…

…the curious wonder in your child’s eye.

The inhale that’s never missed following up your exhale…

…the smile from a stranger that peels away your label of ‘strange’.

Most will settle today for a drama they think they’ve been cast for. They will drink and drink of gossip, blame until their blue in the face, become the victim at any cost and live into the belief that it’s all going to hell in a handbasket.

What if heaven is at our fingertips?

Conducive Conditions

Only when your inner state has conditions conducive for gardening will your exterior experience produce the flowers you long to behold.

If the vase is empty, you may want to start tilling the soil in your chest.

Noticing…

…begins with ‘no’.

If there is a muscle we need to build, it’s most definitely our ‘no’ muscle.

The clues we’re looking for are contingent on this and they will not appear by saying ‘yes’ to all of our options.

Golf and Gossip (and anything else for that matter)

You are not good at golf the first time you ever take a swing.

The more you play, the better you get.

Sure, some have a natural swing, but for most, the more they tee it up, the better they get.

And this goes for everything.

The more we tee up a critique, the better we become at critiquing. The more we tee up empathy and compassion the more comfortable we become at leaving our shoes and entering another’s.

So here’s the work…

Can you be aware enough today (and tomorrow) to realize that your practices and disciplines may have you on a trajectory that is nowhere close to your true goals and desires?

Practice doesn’t make perfect.

It creates purpose.
