As we continue this journey of learning, sharing and living Pause Stop Reset, one of the themes that comes up regular is waves.
So often we find ourselves wanting the calm, wanting a space to be still and peaceful – especially with the world in the chaos it is today.
Yet we also want variety and growth and life.
So how we do we navigate these waves?
Well I think the first is acknowledging they exist – the external waves and the internal.
We have to also be with the fact that perhaps we haven’t always masterfully danced in them before.
As we grow and evolve the waves can be different and we have to step back into the beginner’s mind.. or at least we have the choice to. Pause Stop Reset is all about being open to new.. and it doesn’t mean that’s easy to be with.
Processing past traumas, beliefs and potentially decades or who life of patterns is work.
It’s a choice in each moment.
I know for one that having been tumbled by heavy waves the bright sunshine moments feel better, and there is something amazing when we find ourselves above them.
We are alive .. I am alive.. and we both surf the waves and cause them for ourselves and others.
Allowing ourselves to mature and step into that of the wise surfer.. who also knows that sometimes its better to pick up our board and head inside until the sun comes out again and the conditions are better.
And it’s ok to have our time out to be and nurture ourselves.
How do you navigate the waves?
What waves have you caused?
How would you love to be when they come again?
Perhaps something to journal and explore..
