Paradoxes help me live outside of the either/or.
Paradoxes help me live in the both/and world, which to me, is a more honest representation of my human experience.
I bumped into a neighbor this morning who commented on how I’ve been showing up on LinkedIn, and how sparkly I’ve been. Thank you, Diane.
And then she asked me how I’m doing, and I almost burst into tears.
I’m going through some hard things in my heart. I choose to allow the truth of that, and the truth that I can also be sparkly, to exist at the same time.
It’s not either/or.
Some mornings, I surrender, forehead to floor, and ask the universe for guidance.
Feeling the grief.
Feeling the fear.
Feeling the doubt.
Letting them wash over me and away like a wave.
Then I get up, and do the things I help my WILL members do.
Take deep breaths.
Put my hands over my heart and say, “I am okay. I am safe. I am loved.”
I work on my beliefs of what’s possible.
I listen for a message that I feel called to share, that might help someone else, say it aloud, tidy it up and press send.
If you are a woman lawyer who wants to live in a both/and universe, book a call.
