How fully are you living?--> When you think about living fully, what is it that you imagine? How do you define a "full" life?
This morning I met a lovely woman who was feeling torn apart and vulnerable because she said her life was falling apart around her and she was starting at square one. I can definitely relate to that feeling, and it's certainly challenging. But - having been through this several times now- something in me is beginning to see this kind of situation not as a travesty but as an OPPORTUNITY.
How many people get to live several "lives" over the course of one lifetime? This woman has the chance to have an entirely different, new experience and take on life. That's freaking cool!
If we, as humans, could define fullness of life by the number of versions we've experienced, that would be so empowering. Because reinvention would then be celebrated instead of feared.
People sometimes say I'm like a cat, with 9 lives. I never really appreciated how lucky I've been to have experienced the world through so many lenses and so many versions. But truly, I am blessed.
My varied experiences don't make me better than anyone else- no matter how many times we go around the may pole we are always doing our own little dance and not competing with anyone. It's just that the more you dance around your may pole, the deeper you can know yourself and enjoy the dance. #
