Do you know how sometimes we don't give things a chance; simply because we did not "stop to smell the roses", and it comes back and we see it and finally appreciate it?
One of my clients led me on a journey tonight. It started months ago. She said you had to go and see David Whyte - in an e-mail....for purposes unknown I knew we had to be in the same room.
Tonight I have realized so many things in his discussion with us....words that carry in what he describes as conversations that we have day to day that affect us all. I always believed in this.
He discusses vulnerability, and how it leads to enlightenment. I discuss this daily with people and truly believe in it. How can one create a relationship with oneself like we do with work and our partner without truly being vulnerable with our self like we are in these other settings?
Everyone's journey as an athlete and a person are parallel in nature and the medium, realize this.
Competing and making yourself vulnerable leads to enlightenment. You are saying, "here I am, here is my purpose, here is my everything"...do not be afraid of it; enjoy it.
You might just discover a relationship with your self that you never had but always wanted.
