You gotta love it when you get a reminder that you’re unconscious. In the last 24 hours, I got TWO.
After ranting about being in the moment, I found myself yesterday doing exactly what I wrote about in “Using the Damn Brain God Gave You”. No, I wasn’t on the cell phone and driving, but I was just as distracted.
I was on the phone with a friend that I hadn’t spoken to in several months. We were looking at a website and trying to come up with a solution to a problem I was having with a client. After we finished perusing, I *should* have turned my attention to our conversation. But nooooooooooooooo. I went back to my email. And *ding* there was a comment on my blog.
Did I wait to read it?
Silly. Of course not.
While I was still talking to my friend, I’m reading the comment.
Guess who wasn’t in the moment??
Today, I was talking to my buddy, Coach Iyabo, when I start going on and on about this mastermind group I’m in. Just like the brilliant coach she is, she asks, “Do you want to be in this group?”
Guess who wasn’t “ownin’ her shit?”
But the beauty of not always being who you say you want to be is that you get to choose again.
Gone is the need to pick up the proverbial club and beat myself.
And that my friends is GROWTH.
As long as we are breathing, we have the chance to choose to be all that we are.
Beautifully human and Perfectly Divine….
All at the same time.
Cool, isn’t it?
