Two days after New Years Day, just as I was about to rock my world with well-defined New Years resolutions, business plans, & my usual high-energy/conquer the world enthusiasm – life knocked me down with a nasty virus & strep for 2 weeks. I don’t get sick, well not that often – the last time I had even a cold was 2 years ago, so my initial reaction was denial. But when I realized that I just had to surrender, that absolutely nothing was going to be happening in my life until I felt better, I found that all that I was left with, was a quiet, peaceful eye in the storm of being ill. And in that eye, all that I could do was just be. And in just being, I realized that it was time to let go of so much push, of so much striving…..it was time to be at total peace with where I am right now…..that, yes, it is all good….that my life is perfect as is.
