Recently in my Facebook group there has been a lot of discussion around how much power is held by our subconscious mind, our inner critic, and our stories of NOT ENOUGH.
Throughout these virtual discussions, the word “fight” has come up a lot.
People fighting to push out of their comfort zone.
People fighting with their resident crazy person.
People fighting against their subconscious.
People fighting with the other people in their lives.
And yet, fighting is so tiring, and so destructive.
Who really want to fight? Not me.
What if instead of fighting with yourself, or with another, you were actually dancing?
You may not be dancing to the same music, or to the same steps. It is possible that you are each trying to lead at the same time, and you end up going nowhere. One of you might be doing the tango, and other the waltz. One of you might be line dancing, and the other swing dancing.
Even though you are out of step, and out of sync, your underlying desires are the same--to create something beautiful and magical for yourself and others.
When I imagine a fight I think of blood, sweat, and tears.
When I imagine dancing, I see beauty, smiles, and grace.
No doubt it does take time, practice, and coordination to get to the beauty, those smiles, and that grace, but isn’t it so much more peaceful and wonderful to think of dancing with your inner critic, or dancing with your boss, or dancing with your partner, than fighting with them?
Are you ready to start dancing?
Courage. Compassion. Connection.
