10 Day WE CAN DO THIS Countdown to 2011 - # 7 Allowing
Now at first allowing seems like a backstep for someone who has chosen to make 2011 my year of deciding.
But I have enough living under my belt to know that there is an ebb and flow to this thing called life and I have never been an all or nothing, black and white, kind of thinker.
Making decisions and not settling doesn't mean I am suddenly turning my canoe upstream -
(I don't want to end up on that "I Survived" tv show after all)
but, I do need to steer my canoe, that's why canoes come with paddles after all, unless I want to end up crashed along a rocky shoreline.
(where I can imagine some kind of Tom Hanks falling in love with his volleyball future for me that would not be pretty)
Part of this deciding thing is about getting in touch with what I want, so that this all becomes alot more effortless - allowing things to flow in and out of my life as I make decisions based on my intention without second guessing myself with indecision or hanging on too tightly ....
And I should mention that even though 2011 is still a couple days away, I have already started making decisions:
hubby - "what should we have for dinner?"
old me - "I don't know - what do you want?" <--- this didn't happen
new decisive me - "egg and ham omelets with crispy rye toast" <--- this did
hubby - "mmm, sounds perfect"
(of course we are still shoveling out from our snowpocalypse and the cupboards are pretty bare, but see how yummy decisive action can make anything sound)
