Isn’t it interesting, ironic and simply beautiful how life presents itself? The mystery is astounding.

I am going through a break-up. Many actually.  My life is changing in various ways, and I am being asked, persuaded – and in some sense… forced to move onward. I am being nudged onto a new path. I’m sad, scared, and incredibly inspired.

For over 8 years, I have worked with this willPower’s word of the week, CONTROL…  and meditated on controlling my thoughts and my emotions.  I have encouraged my students to have control over their bodies, their workouts, their nutrition.

Green light DayThis year, for me – everything has changed.  I am letting go.  Relinquishing control of those things that are not for me to decide.  Today is May 1 – a new start…  The color of the month is Bud Green – a hue that resonates with freshness, prosperity and a sense of  “physical and emotionally healing.” Interestingly, just yesterday was the day that I decided to really just let go… fall back onto the universe to carry me for a minute… I experienced a “green light day”.  Literally – I didn’t have to stop for ONE red light.  Every single light was green. It was spectacular… and I took these green signals to heart.  Green means go.

Yesterday, my friend posted something really cute on my wall:

It was a sad and disappointing day when I discovered my Universal Remote Control did not, in fact, control the Universe. (Not even remotely.)”

So today I’ve resigned to float on the Universe for a while… the opposite of who I’ve become.  I’ll breathe, explore, and experience. I’ll manage what comes my way.  I’ll let you know how it goes.
