“Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.”
– Pema Chodron

So much anticipation is brewing. . .

as the world goes through the lunging and retreating cycle, making its way toward being free again.

Cruise lines are now charting “trips to nowhere” for vaccinated patrons, while whole countries are instituting full lockdowns again. Some states are flinging wide the doors while, at the same time, warnings of variant surges dominate the airways.

It may come sooner, it may come later, and there’s definitely still a long road ahead, but there’s a flickering light emerging at the end of this chrysalis-of-a-year tunnel: freedom is on it’s way!

The question is, what You is coming out of this cocoon? What do you have to show for your Self?

Dorothy was told by Glinda the Good Witch, at the end of her adventures with The Wizard of Oz, that she could have gone home at any time, but she had to learn that for herself. Scarecrow then asks Dorothy what she learned.

Her answer was hers, but what’s yours? What can you list as your new gifts, values, directions, awareness or insights for living? How is a better version of You coming forth?

As we all eventually bust out of this encasement and stretch our new wings, getting a clear sense of your Self that flies beyond these times will somehow make it more bearable. . .if not eventually worthwhile.

It sure beats being a victim to it all.

Think differently, play better.
