Life can be chaotic at times, and when that happens, we sometimes let our frustrations, anger, unfairness get the best of us when things are not going our way. Chaos is not always a bad thing. Chaotic times offer us an opportunity to explore options.
When life gets out of balance that is the perfect time/opportunity to lean in, and check in with ourselves, instead of pushing against, wanting it to be different and go away. When life throws us off it is a calling for patience and awareness.
Patience allows us to find a rhythm within to help us navigate and find our resources to feel the calm in the crazy making.
The Chaos is about finding ourselves, not losing who we are. It is about anchoring oneself in personal “faith” and live more gracefully when people, places, and situations are feeling out of sorts. It is about finding our ground, steadying ourselves.
Chaos is a perfect opportunity to meditate, call our spirit back when the turbulence around us is making all the noise and confusion.
Ironically, chaos is also the perfect opportunity to shine, to react differently to the windy situations. We have all heard the expression, “When life gives you lemons, whip up a batch of sweet lemon aide”.
Three things to practice; Acceptance, this is happening now. Awareness, an opportunity to feel yourself in the mix. Playfulness, find the sweet spot in that moment of chaos, reach for a feel-good feeling, maybe it is just holding space for yourself. No matter what “shit” happens and it is up to us how it plays out. Dolby Dharma <#
“Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces together.”
