L.A. Reding, an amazing coach I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with, ends her emails with this quote from T.S. Eliot:
If you would save your life, you must lose it.
If you would thrive in the new world, you must dissolve your old form.
Letting go is the only path to safety.
My posting here has been limited lately as I’ve been immersed in just what this quote suggests: dissolving, letting go, and opening up to a new world as a coach and as a person.
Writing here, while I love it and find that it feeds a certain part of me, has needed to take a back seat as I take on the high stakes, real life high-wire act of stepping into my true self and my true calling. I’ve been weaving, tottering, falling, and yes, getting back up again to try another day.
So, my dear friends and readers, fear not: I will return again to write, soon and regularly, with luck. In the meanwhile, enjoy your summer vacation, and sip on this:
What must dissolve in you?
What’s begging to emerge?
What no longer can be denied?
