Sometimes we enter a vortex of chaos. Chaos is frenetic with creative energy. It comes on quick and catapults you into projects, busy-ness, distractions and time flying. Should we choose to not control, define, or resist this cycle we can enter the vortex of growth. And with any growth spurt, there is some discomfort, some uncertainty, some frustration. With any growth spurt we can't stop it, so why try? With any growth spurt, we don't know what we will look like or be like after it's done, so why worry? I am currently in such a vortex and am living every day with the intention to choose to see the possibilities that chaos is offering me to create for my life. I am surrendering into the loss of my connection to time. I am listening to the old patterns that are dying while at the same time hearing the voice of the new patterns being created. I am constantly shifting my focus out of stress and into enjoyment I stand with gratitude for the new as I let die the old. I am swirling with confusion, excitement, disappointment, unwavering knowing, insecurity, madness and fun.
This cycle and chaos that has enveloped my life right now has me asking my authentic self if the path I'm on is right. The questions come with a gentle embrace of reflection, without judgement or scrutiny, but just a loving desire to confirm or deny my dreams. It's so easy to disregard this contemplation when we are in an easy flow. Chaos really shakes up your vision, moves the ground you walk on. And it's in the chaos that we are willing to ask and authentically look at what we really want, what our true dream is, and then hunger for it is born.
If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or in a state of chaos, look deeper, look broader, and use the momentum of chaos' energy to put into motion the focus of your dreams. Every chaotic moment is ours to be in and we choose how we are in it. How are YOU in your moments? Do you embrace or resist the energy boost of chaos? What is your dream as of today? Who are YOU in your moments?
Be uniquely YOU and I'll be uniquely ME.
