Hey there, tribe!
This week's episode on the podcast is a bit on the personal side but I felt a draw to talk about this and share with you all.
Society has certain norms and rules that we must follow, those compounded with the environment that we are raised in end up impacting the way we behave and move around the world as we grow up. Were you encouraged to move your body or were you encouraged to stay still and respect order from a young age? How does this affect how flexible and fun you are as an adult?
Listen below to get some answers and to try a dynamic that can help you learn more about this as it applies to your life.
Dynamic: Picture yourself as a young child playing in a park where there are a lot of trees. You are swinging from branch to branch freely and with your shirt scrunched up to show your belly. Your mother and father appear in the scene and see you, according to your past and your life, how would you say each of your parents responds to seeing you this way?
Mantra: Today, I will stop clinging to the painful lessons of the past. I will open myself to the positive lessons today and tomorrow hold for me. I trust that I can and will take care of myself now. I trust that the plan is good, even when I don’t know what it is. - Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go.
How are you being more intentional about having fun in your day to day life?
