In the last 12 weeks, I have immersed myself in two different teachings: one is Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way - which I am lucky enough to experience in a group, a wonderful group - and the other is Tim Ferris' The 4-Hour Work Week.
Somehow, they both came to me around the same time, and even though they require more time than I thought I had, it seemed super important that I commit to dancing with both of them. So I did.
A small and quiet revolution has taken place in my life, in the last three months.
Not all of it has been comfortable nor fun. Some waves have threatened to take me under. But they have not. They have taken me ... over. Over my fear, over some of my stories, some of my self decided-upon limitations. Synchronicity has come to play, bigger ideas have popped up, amazing collaborations, too. A huge sense of possibility has emerged. More resources. At the same time, several things have suddenly appeared to be much less relevant, creating small oasis of time in my days. Some light has been shed on some not so flattering aspect of who I am - along with the courage to sit with that.
It has been really good.
As the year begins, I urge you to consider "inviting" some new teachers into your life. Just the process of asking, in your heart, will start them coming your way.
And then, you may really love the ride...
