I had an adventuresome childhood. We lived at 19 addresses by the time I was 19 years old. I continued with this. By age 40 I had lived at 38 addresses and had 37 different jobs.
I did not like the jobs, opportunities, my relationships, location, political views or people. By age 40 I was awakened to a very difficult lesson. One of the groups I participate with gave me this simple mirror. Inscribed on the outside of the mirror is this:
“It’s not them”
Whoa. Wait a minute. Whaddya mean? Oh no. It’s all me?
All of it?
All of the people, locations and situations simply reflected some part of me. How far away can I get from me?
I’m slowly discovering compassion for myself and you all.
Happy New Year Everybody
