Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.

-Eckhart Tolle

How I cower at times in fear.  Of the sheer magnitude of the reality of what life could be.  But why are we afraid of the dream – when its in our hearts and we’ve hankered after it for longer than we ourselves can remember.

Today I went for an ‘interview’ and as I got on the highway, the next offramp is the one I’d use to go to visit a friend.  I haven’t seen her in a while, so I picked up the phone and while connecting with her started to take the offramp – if she wasn’t home it was easy enough to get back on the highway – happiness – she was home so I went by for a visit.

We had an awesome catch up and during our chat about where we are, what’s happening and ‘all that jazz’, she looked at me when I said I’d been interviewing and the other things and said ‘but Wends, its your jam – why are you scared?’

I can’t bullshit her, she knows me too well, she sees into my soul.  So, this evening I will yet again get back to the scheduling, the planning, the scheming and allowing myself.
