Ow or Wow?

Ow or Wow?
ow or wow

Angular Pull (oil pastel) by Polly Castor

There are two standpoints from which to come from: ow or wow. Are you coming from a place of being hurt, misunderstood, frustrated, angry, or lacking in some way? Or instead, are you grateful and amazed at all the good you have done, have received, and intrinsically are? Your experience will be very different depending on which place you identify with. Each of us could argue this point either way, so be clear that this is a matter of choice, not circumstance. I encourage you to make ongoing, conscious choices to inhabit the perspective that will joyously propel you in the best direction. This is more powerful, and more relevant to outcome, than you imagine.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
