it’s all in the recovery

if

you are

irritated

by

every

rub,

how

will you

be

polished?

~rumi

i’m gonna fall, fail, flop, flounder. the question is –

how am i gonna rise?

really.

it’s not about not having bad moments or

a pristine life of utter equanimity.

seriously.

bad events happen. bad decisions are made by me and for me…

how do i respond? blame and projection seem tasty.

insight and ownership are so much more graceful.

muddling back up from a fall with the ones offering a hand…

much prettier than rolling on the ground in a good ‘ol adult sized tantrum. 😉

embodiment of the rumi quote was learned from and with ryan kennedy, and “it’s all in the recovery” is a concept that was shared by christine caldwell — both wonderful teachers during my time in naropa’s somatic psychology program.
