Rising is a call for celebration. It is a reminder that we’ve awakened to see the sun again - and what a privilege that is! It is a gift to wake up. And we must RISE just as the sun does. We must wake up fully to ourselves and the possibilities that lie ahead. That means we’re not waking up just to sleep on ourselves. Our rising gives the world notice that we are here and we’re not going anywhere. And our greatness isn’t going anywhere either. It’s coming with us tuh-day, okrr?!
Jealousy. This is a big one. Think about all the times you’ve been jealous of someone in your life. Now think about all the times someone has been jealous of you. Whether you’re at the receiving end of it or you’re the one dishing it out, the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t feel good either way. But when you think about it, jealousy is SUCH a natural emotion! I see jealousy being expressed by children so often and so freely that it makes me wonder why we make it such a big deal as adults. What if we’re supposed to feel jealous? What if jealousy is not such a negative emotion after all? More importantly, what if we can use jealousy as a tool to actually improve our lives and the lives of those around us?
