The Spin Cycle this week is “motto.” As in what mottos do you live by?
I have an eclectic mix of mottos this morning that I will throw out there like several splashes of paint upon the canvas. If you find any of them at odds with each other, well then. You have a glimpse of what it is like for me on a daily basis.
We learn more from our mistakes and failures than we do from our successes. The growth we experience as we work through our trials takes us to a better, more aware state.
If we deny we made a mistake, or try to blame others for them, we are bound to find ourselves in situations over and over again until we work through whatever it is we are meant to work through.
Laugh and and see the humor in things as much as possible.
Be mindful. Although we do learn through our mistakes, some missteps are life altering.
Love before all else.
I leave you with a quote from Martha Graham.
We hold the power to create whatever we desire. Our ability to manifest the changes we desire depends on the depth and passion of our beliefs and on the focus of our attention.
With this understanding, we, as individuals and as society, can design a whole new future for ourselves. Our challenge is to break free of society’s world view, to truly empower our imaginations to create brand new realities. It brings a whole new meaning to ‘vision.’
What do you passionately desire for your own life? For the planet?
The gesture is the thing truly expressive of the individual – as we think so will we act.
