Today I woke up feeling the frenzy of my to do list, and a low rumbling anxiety about all that appears to be on my plate. However, I knew that that was not what I wanted to feel, so I circled back around and took stock.
For heaven sakes, in a couple of days we are closing on the purchase of a home after six years of relocations and change. A new sense of thankfulness couldn't help but rise up loud and strong instantly restoring my giddiness!
This has been a long season of letting go, free falling, forward movement in the form of rest, acceptance, realignment and learning a whole new level of self-care that I had never known and that I can only give myself. It has also been a season of cultivating thankfulness.
Six years ago when we left LA and I was separated from all four of my kids in one fell swoop, repeatedly landing in short term stops along the route and knocking up against some hard life blows, I began to learn to cultivate a happy heart in the present moment at a whole new level. I learned to face down my fears, comparisons, "not enoughness" and every flyby negativity that surfaced and believe me there were plenty and at times still are.
Giddiness is an abundance perspective based on trust in a Higher Being no matter the circumstance. Certainly, this vantage point has to be nurtured and feed, rather than the fear and scarcity lens that too easily takes its place. This shift out of blame and accusation that we like to place on others, or ourselves around our pain or circumstances is merely a redirect, camouflaging our lack of trust and belief that we are fully loved and cared for. Recognizing this reality is the most liberating, comical and giddy-inducing discovery of a lifetime.
Giddiness is a choice. It's effortless if we are willing to give up our old song and dance. It means choosing to believe that we are completely hooked up and connected. Any illusion of separation from love is simply laughable, yet how often does ego convince us otherwise, by keeping our focus on the circumstances of our story, lack, fear or the constant "not enough" lie?
Today, one more time, I choose giddy, the reality of a constant state of being fully loved.
