Yeah, I do . . . But in fact, this post has NOTHING to do with asparagus . . .
In the last week, I've had two conversations with two terrific friends which have stayed with me . . .
Conversation #1 . . .
M has had some health trouble for a few years . . . Breathing issues, lung issues, stomach issues, intestinal issues, energy issues . . . You get the picture . . . Tested for everything under the sun, and it comes back (thankfully) negative . . . M has said over and and over, I have to lose some weight, and change my lifestyle . . .
Conversation #2 . . .
D has some life issues . . . Childhood and adult . . . Getting therapy . . . Can't let shit go . . . So many things from D's past continue to impact the present . . . As we talked, I had the feeling D just needs to let it all go, and said so, and D asked, How do I let it go? . . . Let me back up . . . I've let ALL KINDS OF SHIT go . . . Believe me, my life hasn't been the one you might choose . . . lol But I embrace everything . . . And I've let it all go . . . And I mean, everything!
But his question caught me . . . How do I let it go? I had to think about that . . . And I've come to the conclusion that it was mostly this . . . I had come to the point when I was so completely fed up with letting the shit rule my life . . . So I said, let that stuff go! And I did, a couple of decades ago . . . Simple, huh? Maybe not . . .
Back to #1 . . .
M is so positive about embracing the fitness lifestyle, and feels SO MUCH better and empowered for doing it . . . M reached the point of being absolutely fed up, and did what needed to be done . . . And will never look back . . .
Back to #2 . . .
D hasn't yet reached the point of being so fed up with letting the negative rule life . . . But D will . . . And when D does, I'll put a notch in my belt . . . Another person reached on the TRUE level, the level of Spirit . . .
Here's the point . . . We have to reach the point of feeling so much pain, that we finally say, It isn't worth it . . . And when we do, great stuff happens, because we don't want to look back and see that shit again . . . Seems to be the human condition, huh?!
Peace and love!
Life is beautiful baby . . .
