To trust yourself - be clear what you want
My wise mentor put these words in my head this weekend. At face value they mean nothing. When I look at whether I know what I want, the secret begins to be revealed. Very often, in my line of work, and in my personal life I think that what I want is what makes me look good, or feel acknowledged or important. And this can breed underlying resentment and misery in my life. Because what I really want is to be doing stuff that I want to do - for no real outcome.
What do I really want - to be appreciating every moment - unconditionally. No concern about what the result of the moment will hold for me. Whether I will be liked or disliked, heard or ignored, respected or disrespected. Just in the moment. Light without my expectations. Just as it is when I am relating to an animal. No consequence.
