It came to me while talking with a friend, a few days ago.
This big lesson I learned just a few months after my kids' dad and I separated.
A lesson that brought me much peace over what was to be some big, beautiful, challenging and blessed years.
And still does.
Here's the YouTube video.
First of all, who would ever think that the Reader's Digest would want to partner with us? That's already a little kooky, right?
But then, the joy of sending them our logo, the logo that my kid designed when he was 5? That's so much fun.
So here's to not working too hard at being "grown up" but rather going with what makes our hearts smile.
I hope you enjoy this new YouTube video.
Since I have returned, it seems that there is a sweet plan to keep me inspired and engaged. And I really, really appreciate it.
I also really appreciate any opportunity to be reminded of "the way things work," of the laws that to me, are as strong as the law of gravity. I see them as the laws of life, the manual to co-creating with the universe, the tutorial on how to hold our magic wand.
On of these laws is what I call The Big Nose Law. Really, it's "the Big No," but it's more fun to call it The Big Nose, so I do.
It's the law that says that for every self knowing, authentic No we give, there is a beautiful Yes waiting for us. Even - and especially - when the No was hard to give.
So, here you go, a few minutes of magic wand tutorial, and some happy personal news.
