Don’t you love it when life catches you unaware? Surprises (good ones) keep us out of the day to day rut. Its why we get up in the morning (though we might not know it).
Yesterday was full of surprises! First the weather was perfect. Secondly I got a package I’ve been waiting for. I also received a birthday card from my brother with the most beautiful and heartfelt note. I had visits from a 10 week old husky puppy and a former student home from college…
Each surprise lightened my heart and filled my soul. These blessings provided me with energy and love to share with those who crossed my path… Some may think these simple pleasures are just, what they appear to be; a card, a puppy, sunshine and a young student. To me they were affirmations of life and love…
Look for your bliss,
In this morning’s staff meeting I was explaining how as instructors we get tuned out when we become one dimensional. The example I used is when we view the same dvd over again we know exactly what’s going to be said and what’s going to happen. This sort of thing happens in almost every area of our lives. We don’t always realize it but it’s described as “the classes are boring”, “there’s no surprises in our relationship”, “the job is old hat”… Any of these sound familiar?
So how do we fix it? First of all in order to solve a problem you have to recognize you have one! Many of us are in a comfort zone (rut) – The only way out is to change something and be conscious of the change. Ask questions, how can I be better? Is there someone somewhere who is doing what I’d like to do? If there is call him/her ask them questions, ask them to mentor you! The universe is multidimensional and things are being duplicated constantly – Why not your happiness or success?
If your tired of the same old show everyday, put in another dvd!
