Just a quick reminder today – you never know if the weather around the bend is going to be sunny or stormy, so the thing to focus on is how you’re driving!
Are you present, curious, open, alert? Are you spending too much time looking in the rearview mirror? Are you white-knuckling the ride or do you have the windows rolled down and the wind in your hair?
When it rains, do you feel the universe is conspiring against you? Or do you pull over and step outside and splash around in the puddles? If there’s a serious storm, do you take cover?
You get the idea. Life is going to bring all kinds of weather. How we respond to that weather will have a lot (but not everything) to do with how we feel about the journey. You don’t get to drive the Bus of Life. The Bus of Life is Life’s business. But you do get to drive your car. You do get to realize that weather (just like any given thought or feeling) will roll in, and it will roll out. Take care of your car – check the oil, fill the tires, make sure you have enough gas (my way of saying get on your yoga mat, find at least ten minutes a day to meditate, and feed yourself well). Beyond that, see if you can enjoy the ride.
Sending you so much love,
Ally Hamilton Hewitt
