There’s No Comparison

Hello Love,   Do you ever have those moments when you don’t feel quite put together or that you’ll ever reach your dream only to look over to see a sister soaring with success? It can be hard to appreciate the butterfly when you feel like you’re still crawling on the ground.   I was having one of those mornings today where I was admiring fabulous accomplishments of some of my visionary sisters and feeling like I didn’t quite measure up. Then I remembered this wisdom I received a while ago. It was just what I needed to gain some perspective and peace of mind.   While I hope you’re on top of the world today I’m sending you this for those times when you need a reminder you’re exactly who and where you need to be.   With deep love, Joni   No Comparison   She’s so beautiful I feel so fat Oh, look She’s sooo good I wish I could do that   She’s got such talent She creates with such ease   When I try It’s like wrestling a pig into a bathing suit Another epic fail   I really think she must be perfect Not a hair out of place She’s always dressed just right Knows just what to say   I can barely take myself out in public Wrong clothes, wrong hair I never got the memo   I fear I’ll never measure up Always be less than How can I not be Surrounded by such beauty, accomplishment, brilliance, wit, savvy and skill   But my dear I think you have forgotten Even as...

Please click here to view the video.   In out-of-the-way places of the heart, Where your thoughts never think to wander, This beginning has been quietly forming, Waiting until you were ready to emerge.   For a long time it has watched your desire, Feeling the emptiness growing inside you, Noticing how you willed yourself on, Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.   It watched you play with the seduction of safety And the gray promises that sameness whispered, Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent, Wondered would you always live like this.   Then the delight, when your courage kindled, And out you stepped onto new ground, Your eyes young again with energy and dream, A path of plenitude opening before you.   Though your destination is not yet clear You can trust the promise of this opening; Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning That is at one with your life’s desire.   Awaken your spirit to adventure; Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk; Soon you will be home in a new rhythm, For your soul senses the world that awaits you.   ~ John O’Donohue   My Dear Sister,   A new opening and rhythm do indeed await you. And it is at one with your unique life desires. And this can be your year to receive it.   To assist you I have a New Year inquiry and additional resource to support you.   Just before midnight on New Year’s Eve my husband, daughter and I each created a list of what we wanted to leave behind in 2015....
