It is good to be reminded that it’s OK to forget my persona and just enjoy myself.
When I think of all the energy I have put into things like a serious career, a serious relationship or even a serious wardrobe - I notice that time has a way of just gently correcting my perspective and putting everything in it’s rightful place.
None of these things really turned out to make differences in the ways I thought they might. I thought I could get a sense of self and importance that I could count on. Somehow. (How exactly did I think that would work?)
I am not saying there is anything wrong with gravitas, or any of these things I focused on. I rather have enjoyed my career, my relationship and my wardrobe. But were they ‘serious’? Uh, I don’t think so.
Steve Chandler is here speaking at Supercoach Academy and his way of teaching our coaches to step forward into life and into powerful coaching so delightfully pokes fun at all the ways we take ourselves too seriously, that I can’t help but review my life and wonder what the heck I was thinking.
Taking a moment to chuckle - just a little bit - at all the foibles I recognize in myself is a great way to be gentle and kind to me. Maybe I don’t need self love so much as a good sense of humor.
