Snow and Change in Perspective

2012  is past and now the snows have begun coming on a regular basis.

Its winter 2013, and the lessons to be learned have begun to arrive.  The latest - how to deal with my truck's rear tire embedded in a snow pile(luckily not a snow bank).  I've decided to do a few chores around the house and blog as I figure out what to do about the truck stuck at the bottom of my driveway.

Sometime in the past 3 months or so I have started to see things a bit differently, I think I have experienced an unconscious change in perspective.  These past few months have brought a number of changes in my life, the most significant being my first child leaving home for university, and my starting a new business.  Suddenly, or so it seems, I view the activities I have participated in for 4 to 10 years as a great opportunities for developing new relationships.  Also a few of my former high priority activities no longer seem quite so pressing as my long standing top priorities are being replaced by new, and certain previously less "important" activities.

For example, I have often thought it would be great to meditate. A couple people I really like and admire meditate on a daily basis.  I also have daily access to the Saltroom, and have been told by people that the Saltroom is an ideal place to meditate, indeed one of the best places they have experienced.  Strangely, I have never really meditated there, and that's mainly because I didn't really know how.   Learning to meditate has been lower in priority so it just has never gotten done.  I almost surprised myself by taking action, when I found myself sitting in the first workshop of Meditation Bootcamp!   We were assigned homework and it is proving a bit challenging for me, we'll see how this goes.

Possibly, this shift in my perspective is tied to my practicing to become a certified The Emotion Code practitioner.  Maybe its the planetary shift in consciousness that we heard so much about in relation to December 2012?  I think there could be a great number of reasons why, but I'm choosing not to care about the WHY, I am just moving on and enjoying the experience of my life a bit differently.

I am daily deciding to welcome the shifts as they come because opportunities emerge alongside them.   Now to think about the practicalities of snow work and tires, no not yet, I'm going to have a cup of tea first.
