Good morning!! I hope this message finds you well. :)
I mentioned that you’ll be hearing a lot of sports metaphors from me this month. I LOVE THEM! Soccer is my favorite sport and I'm a big believer that so many things I learned on the field are relevant in my daily life, too. Hey, btw, did you know there is a new reality show looking for the next international soccer star? Yep! It’s called “Soccer Aces” and for men and US tryouts are in Houston on 4/10. www.socceracestv.com. :)!
Have you heard the phrase “game changer”? It's that moment when the course of events shift in another direction. If we are talking about sports and soccer in particular (I never need an excuse to talk about soccer. Ever!) the game changer may be when your team is down 1-0 with 10 minutes left and a sub is brought in off the bench. Within two minutes she scores a goal. Then, 4 minutes later, another goal, putting your team in the lead 2-1! The entire momentum's shifted and your team holds the 2-1 lead right until the end of the game!
Well, today’s the day I want you to create your own game changer!!
Yesterday, I went ahead and registered for a 3 1/2 day “Singer/Songwriter Retreat” at a beautiful place in Vermont called Good Commons. A weekend of rest, yoga, songwriting, optional performing (though I’m certainly jumping in with both feet and performing, yes, we like that option!), and some coaching by a music industry exec and accomplished musicians – hello!!! Dream vacation. Music is a huge passion of mine and I want to take the songs I’ve already written, dust them off and bring them to life. This retreat will be the perfect way to help get over some of my artist insecurities, too! Not to mention the fresh air and beautiful natural setting, something I’ve been craving. I can’t wait. :) It’s in 2 weeks and for the first time I'll be writing my morning daily "on the road" and from a spot where I will be honoring my desires and living my dream.....
I know it. I felt it when I registered. Clearing away the fear, yep. Playing with two feet in, YES! I felt this little dolphin flip in my belly.
What can you do and where can you create experiences that will guide you towards the fulfillment of your dreams?! Can you enjoy or at least be present to every step, song, note, phrase, and experience along the way today?! Are you open to attracting and receiving a game changer?
One more thing. Sometimes things happen that you only recognize to be game changers in hindsight. That’s why it’s so important to keep an open mind to whatever you are experiencing today and practice gratitude for it all. You never know who your encountering or what circumstances can lead to which is why – and I’m totally learning how to do this – you should really not negate anything!! Not negate. That’s a very very double double negative negative. :) Appreciate and validate instead!
Closing thought: Today is all about the GAME CHANGER!! I am grateful for the events and shifts in my attitude that change the momentum and carry me in the direction of my dreams!
