I usually let the pollyanna "elated" feeling drive me these days. I feel like i've come a long way in how I react to "upheaval". Think: super silver lining. I owe RK a huge shout out for helping me to find this headspace. I've worked at it by myself for a long time, but him having my back, over and over, really friggin helps.
I've also resorted to tattooing these things onto my body.

The first one was a mantra my mom and dad had been urging on me for years & RK reiterates:

Seeing it in black ink, engraved, on my arm seriously helps.

But, apparently it wasn't enough. On my return from NYC this summer, I walked straight over to the tatoo artist and asked for another.
This past summer in NY, I finally realized that I'd wasted a lot of time wishing for something other than what was right in front of me. It's made my days a lot brighter, the moments a lot stronger.
I think I'm finally getting it.

You said you were going to do it...looks great! And of course the imperative is so true.

I love this - the statement, the intention to live it and best of all, the way your arm is stretched out, ready to hug the moment, the world.

Oh my goodness... this makes me so excited.

I have been inking (with a pen) all my necessary mantras.

The first one was, "Be Nice."

The there was, "Don't be defensive."

And so many more I can't remember right now.

Awesome. I love yours. You are two steps ahead of me and I love that.
