It’s fun to remember Joey from Friends always asking this question with a twinkle in his eye… but that’s not quite the angle I was aiming for with the same question. I mean, how are you doing, as this weird year winds up to and end point, and further uncertainty runs the media releases, the conversations and the politicians narratives. How are you doing as you wage war with your family and friends over the big Vax or Unvax issues. Are you battling against mandates? Are you challenged by death and health issues affecting others close to you?
This is a time of needing to renew our faith, our understanding of what’s going on inside for each of us, and to feel the way forward. For some of us it’s about a renewed awareness of purpose, to be a guiding light for some or many. For some of us it’s about gently helping someone through tough moments in time. For some of us it’s about helping to identify where the soft landing places are.
The Blue Flames are indications of increased awareness, of understanding that you will be supported in whatever roles are presented to you in this life. So please don’t be afraid. Instead, lean in, find your feet, place them shoulder width apart and smile, as you stand in your power, with others, and light up what ever dark corners you need most to shine in.
As you do this, remember, find your own place of wellbeing, peace, and learn how to pause when you need to. Seek your inspiration, be it comedy, TedX, church gatherings, or friends around a laden table on a Sunday afternoon.
And finally remember this: If we all take ourselves too seriously, we dilute our spirits….
