Once upon a time, a dream filled my mind, to walk through life with a willingness to literally shed the clothes from my back. Can you imagine doing that?
It seemed like a bold tactic for enticing potential audiences to come hither, further. As time pressed onward, the Law of Attraction demonstrated that you can only fill up an empty cup.
Knowing this has made it much easier for me to give away stuff.
Looking through a fully stuffed closet the realization was made, that it contained, three jackets too many.
Having three (for me) means missing the ONE that’s just right. Goldilocks.
Shortly after, an invitation arrived to step out on the town. And, ThisThor loves to get dressed up & go all out.
It’s true that my velvet dress coat was an eye catching sage green, but the shoulder’s just didn’t quite fit me. Wearing it impeded my upon my desire to move about freely. One bold gesture & it might bust at the seams!
Practicing Listening makes the messages Louder to hear.
So when young Lady named Raven, stepped over to me at the end of the party, gushing excitedly about my coat, my ears perked up quickly.
This was the Perfect Opportunity.
I was ready to relinquish into her possession most definitely, no question.
In her acceptance of this gift, Raven taught me a valuable lesson. She showed me, something that I had been working on: the difficulty with simply accepting!
I mean, c’mon how often is someone actually willing to hand you the coat right off of their back. We’ve been programmed to believe that to Give is better than to Receive. Furthermore, to receive freely could give off the impression that we are greedy. Even if the other person is offering.
To make herself feel better, Raven provided the perfect counter offer! A truly inspiring work of art, that arrived in my life, just in time.
Raven’s methods and aspects of inclusion, are in-line with the very direction that I’ve been considering taking mine.
Because even the best of ideas need motivation for making the leap into reality.
