My husband finally convinced me (and I convinced myself) to come into the smart phone phase. We purchased the iphone 4. We have had the phone for a week, but our old contract expires tomorrow, so we have been waiting to activate. You would have thought it was the count down to Christmas a new baby or something. Every day my husband says "X more days!". Tomorrow he has blocked off the entire day to play. This got me thinking about the concept of the newness of things. This is true for everything. Marriages, weddings, babies are obvious exciting times to prepare for, but what about those moments that aren't so obvious such as new projects, new friends, and new electronic toys! What is it about that build up that is so exciting?
It is the unknown. It is the realm of possibilities. It is where things are not determined yet and anything can happen. That is an exciting point in our creative process. The thing is that we are always creating something new. We start a new day, a new school, a new job, a new recreation, we meet new people. So how come some things are easy to get excited about an others we can't get excited about and maybe even dread? Maybe it is because we think things are already laid out. The possibilities are limited and we aren't that excited to see them play out.
What if we change our perspective to understand that anything can happen, at any moment. The possibilities are endless and are always unfolding.
Insightful Inspirations for the week
Start the day each day thinking that the possibilities are endless. Anything can happen and it is exciting to dream about what that could be. You could meet the love of your life, meet a person who can give you your dream job, you could even WIN the lottery! See if you can reengage that childlike curiosity and joy in the possibilities that are your life. Let them flow in and don't choke them off, thinking you have already got the outcome all figured out.
