So, what is YOUR circus act? I’m not talking about juggling because that’s just inherent in being a mother. Many days, I feel like a juggler, lion tamer and ventroliquist (“say please, say thank you …” said through clenched teeth) rolled into one. I’m not talking about the skills you’ve been forced to learn. I’m talking about the character traits, physical attributes and talents that you were born with.
When do YOU feel extraordinary?
What comes effortlessly to you that others find hard to do? This can be tough to answer as we often assume that everyone finds certain things easy to do simply because we do.
Trust me, there is something about YOU that is extraordinary and you don’t have to run away and join the Circus to find it. Although, there are days when that’s a very tempting thought!
Please spend a few moments looking back on your life and thinking of the times you felt most glorious. What were you doing? Where were you? Does your present life give you any opportunity to feel that same way? Send me an e-mail and let me know what came to mind for you.
