inflamed.

I have been spending this past week in South Florida. I love to paddleboard, and there is a lot of water here. I do not paddleboard in S Florida because I am scared of alligators. I’m as fascinated about the alligators as I am fearful of them. I enjoy spotting them in the ponds, and even seeing them at a distance as they lay in the hot sun.

compliance.

Do you love it when day goes the way you expected? Do you extra love it when day exceeds expectations? Do you agree that life is easy to enjoy when it complies with the desires of your heart? I left for a summer road trip on Tuesday. I have been curious about a new experience…

start.

“Wellbeing is just a word put on a feeling state of possibility. The feeling state is one of empowerment. This feeling state allows access to a broader sense of thinking, feeling, and being in a conditional world. You have your own guidance and intuition. Attune to it. Operate from this state as often as you can. Start here.”

When a general population that has the mental and emotional capacity to do this and does it, it lessens the intensity of the extremes.

synchronicity.

I remember loving a movie titled Serendipity. A chance encounter meets poor timing. A phone number is written in a book and put on a shelf.Β  A feeling state of possibility. Serendipitous events, circumstances, situations happen all the time. I call them Synchronicities – which is actually what I thought the movie was called until…

repeat.

If I am recalling correctly, early on I began noticing familiar patterns of behavior that showed up over and over again in different settings. The same conversation, the same script, the same escape, the same blame, the same tone of voice, the same anger, the same excuse, the same meeting, the same conclusion, etc. The same. Stuck and spinning in a version of the same outcome.Β 
I noticed the patterns even as an active participant. As if I was watching it all play out like a hovering ghost.Β

winds.

Life is continuous evolution. We split our energy and create tension when we don’t disrupt limiting beliefs about change. Change is discomfort. Discomfort triggers stress response. When we aren’t β€˜in’ on how it all plays together, we can get stuck or spin in a life of pushing against what we don’t want, rather than being pulled toward new outcomes that match the desires of our heart.Β

illuminate.

When you know that there are things that happen to illuminate, just as there are those things that happen to darken, (just) knowing that can support your inner state. Just knowing that it exists: just like things happen and can create a dark shadow, so can things that illuminate and add perspective.

tricky.

If you have been following my content shares on the Sally & Sifer Facebook page, you will know that I love to suggest Quiet Time. You’d think Quiet Time was paying me. It’s my own Quiet Time that salvages a sense of my own human decency and calibrates me to what is possible. Life makes sense in Quiet Time. My Quiet Time is like a childhood β€˜ghoul’. In my neighborhood growing up there was a lot of nighttime play. My backyard was in the middle of two houses and was often β€˜ghoul’ – the safe zone. When I get too far outside of my regulated state, I know that from 2-4:30am I have ghoul. I’ll return to the safe space. It exists no matter where I am. Quiet Time.

value.

Self-Awareness. To be aware of your thinking, feeling, behavior. Executive Functions are these skillsets that we have inside of us that help us regulate our thinking, our feelings, and our behavior – our urges and impulses. Self-Awareness is another word for mindfulness or meditation. All it really is is taking time to clear your mind.
