The Hype Around the Headlines
I have been getting bent out of shape lately - seemingly twisted up and worked over by outside forces. I've been telling myself stories about trying to do this or trying to do that - trying to get such and such straightened out, or this planned or taken care of. And all of this mental activity is like a mallet tapping on a piece of metal over and over in my head. Until I finally snap at somebody, throw up the white flag of "overwhelm", or silently complain to myself about how impossible it is.
But then for a moment I found myself aware of the hype. There is an experience and then there's the hype I create around it. So I became aware of my own hype. And in becoming aware, relief from the tapping started to occur. And then I started understanding what I really wanted. And, interestingly, it wasn't just to be done with my "problems".
As it turns out, there were unowned strengths and abilities in me from which I wanted to act. Each situation with which I was faced called for me to step into my power in a way I was resisting but actually wanted. So the question I need to ask isn't "How do I make this stop? it's "Who and how do I want to be and can I allow the challenge to serve as an opportunity for bringing that forward?"
Within these gaps in the hype emerge the TRUE headlines, the true news about ourselves and what qualities we're wanting to embrace - but have thus far resisted. And that's the real story.
