Create something special . . .

(word 51)

Word this week : MOMENT

This quote stopped me in my tracks. And today, as I reflect, the thing that jumps out is : the amazing power we have… in THIS moment.

“I am me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it – I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.

Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know – but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me.

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded.

I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive and to make sense and order out of the world of people, and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay.”  Virginia Satir

Many great words! Thanks for the New Year plaquette orders. I plan on doing this every year (offer made last week). Actually, next time I’ll make it a December offer. I wish I would have thought of it earlier. Sorry if you were out of town and missed it.

Note: You can order a small custom plaquette any time during the year, regular price $35 (includes US shipping).
