If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to it.
Often there seems to be a push/ pull in my psyche; Go for it vs. Allow life to happen.
After my first cancer diagnosis in 2002, a good friend said that this was an opportunity to take time from my high energy ambitious self, and allow life to wash over me. I loved the metaphor and took it to heart. Spending time with family and friends while healing from surgery felt natural, and I enjoyed the down time. Eventually, coming out of the experience recharged with energy, ideas and projects to embark on, I was back- raring to go.
Now 5 years out from a 2nd breast cancer diagnosis, I find myself observing my intrinsic sense to push forward and a tendency to relish each moment.
Playing Koi, toys with the idea of that push/pull, where ever it surfaces in our lives.
Where does Playing Koi, show up in your life?
