Learning is messy!
You gain new knowledge, you get excited to implement that knowledge, you try out that new knowledge, and...you fall...flat.on.your.face!
What happens when you fall?
I fluctuate between beating myself up and ignoring that it happened. Honesty. It can be ugly, but there you go. That's my current reality.
I am trying to get better at acknowledging the potential for growth, and...
I call this one-pot-wonder "pad thai", but I'm pretty sure it only resembles a pad thai. Anyway, it's easy and yummy!
I have a few versions, depending on what sauces I have on hand, and what flavours I'm feeling that night.
1/2 block Organic Firm Tofu - cubed
1/2 Onion - julienned (optional)
2ish handfuls Kale Slaw (or coleslaw mix)
Bell Peppers - julienned
Broccoli or other Veggies (optional)
Rice/Glass Noodles - prepared as...
Expectation: a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future.
Expectations can be dangerous. They are unlikely to be un-voiced, and likely involve another human and incomplete communication.
We have expectations for ourselves, for our lives, for those in our lives, for interactions, and the list goes on. These expectations are beliefs about the future and take us out of the present moment. We may even...
So, I won at breakfast this morning!
Honesty here, I may have been slightly side-tracked while I was practicing yoga this morning...but, in my defence, I was dreaming up this amazingly delicious breakfast!
I'm pretty sure these would also work frozen and re-heated for week-day breakfasts!*
4 Eggs - I get my eggs from a coworker with backyard chickens so they were pretty small
Splash Mylk of choice - I use Cashew for all things
I had a strange experience on Sunday evening.
I went to an event and the audience was asked to participate by sharing what we hoped to get out of the evening. The group seemed pretty quiet, but a few brave people shared. The facilitator of the event wanted a little more. The energy of the room was tense and apprehensive. I realized that no one else was going to share, so I put my hand up.
When I stood up to share, I caught the energy of...

Do you play small? I certainly do.
What is that!? Why is that? Doesn’t that seem counter-intuitive? And yet, we all seem to have this same disposition/fear/shared consciousness.
This is a cliché question, but, for real: What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail? Put differently:
What would you do if you didn’t limit your potential? What would you do if you weren’t afraid of your light?
Your alarm goes off, you hit snooze. Your alarm goes off, you hit snooze. Your alarm REALLY goes off. It’s time to drag yourself out of bed…and, you’re off!
Get out the door, get coffee, get to work, work, workout, eat, tv, bed. Repeat.
Does that, or something like that, remind you of someone? It’s definitely been me. And, if I’m being honest, it will likely be me again at various points in my life.
