Life can create choppy waves, the true question is how do you respond.
My dog and I were enjoying a beautiful, sunny day at the beach. The waves pushing her around, but as a typical Lab, she was relentless on, “Please, oh please throw me the stick. I can do this Mom.” Me completely aware of her swimming abilities.
A bitter lady nearby said, “You are a cruel pet owner, she’s surely to drown.”
Now this lady, has never seen us, does not know us and has no clue to us. This did not deter me from enjoying my moment at the beach. My sweet dog happily, jumping in the waves, fetching her stick and both of us having an all around good time.
At one moment, a wave came up and nearly toppled her, but she held her ground and frolicked out to sea. It was at this moment, my higher self said, “Well how do you respond?”
Brilliant question from a wise soul! So I ask you the same requited question. How do you respond? Do you allow the waves to toppled you over or beat against you, feeling as if you are drowning or less than there of. Or do you reach deep within and allow the tranquility of peace to wash all over you, in you and around you as life creates those tough wavy moments.
As this woman, made her statement, I did not “feel” anything, rather I knew this was not about me, but her. My choice at that particular moment to turn inward, inhaling the calm, serene blue skies inward, pausing for a moment and then breathing out a pink bubble and blowing this to the wind and sea.
May you too have the ability to breathe in the peace and breathe out a pink bubble blowing “this” away from you.
Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,
