* New Center Of Gravity *



"Every challenge we take on has the power to knock us to our knees. But what's even more disconcerting than the jolt itself is our fear that we won't withstand it. When we feel the ground beneath us shifting, we panic. We forget everything we know and allow fear to freeze us. Just the thought of what could happen is enough to throw us off balance.

What I know for sure is that the only way to endure the quake is to adjust your stance. You can't avoid the daily tremors. They come with being alive. But I believe these experiences are gifts that force us to step to the right or left in search of a new center of gravity. Don't fight them. Let them help you adjust your footing.

Balance lives in the present. When you feel the earth moving, bring yourself back to the now. You'll handle whatever shake-up the next moment brings when you get to it. In THIS moment, you're still breathing. In THIS moment, you've survived. In THIS moment, you're finding a way to step onto higher ground."

What I Know For Sure

  1. Oprah is one of the wisest people on this earth. I still have trouble letting go of the fears that set me from accomplishing what I want. But I'm learning to let those fears go every single day. :)
