Its A Great Thing To Get What You Want

spike_and_rarity__s_heart_shaped_fire_ruby_by_edwardten-d4jbvk5Its a great thing to get what you want, unless what you thought you wanted wasn’t what you really wanted, because what you really wanted you couldn’t imagine or didn’t think was possible. But what if someone came along who knew exactly what you wanted without asking. They just knew. They could hear your heart beating and listen to your thoughts and what if they were sure of themselves and they didn’t have to take a pole and they loved you?” From the movie Kate and Leopold

The Joy of Wind Blown Hair

Kimberism: “Well behaved women rarely make history.” Laura Thatcher Ulrich My friend Suzanne shared with me about taking her four year old niece for a ride in her convertible. The curiosity that emerged over a Transformer like car kept her young niece excitedly spouting questions, taking in the azure sky, while her hands waved in roller coaster style. We can learn something from the innocence of childlike wonder. Imagine if we faced the journey of life with the same childlike excitement over the adventure, put the top down on our cares; let our wind-blown hair sail as we coasted for the ride. What needs to be adjusted in your perspective to see life as a ride, a game and an adventure? What control do you need to let go of to enjoy the ride today?

The Bandage of Hospitality

Kimberism: Who practices hospitality entertains God Himself. Proverb After seeing the Movie, The Help I encountered a heavenly conversation with The Upstairs Team where my attention was drawn to the contrast of the characters Hilly and Cecile. In the movie Hilly is a calculating, agenda driven woman, while Cecile possesses a childlike innocence and purity of heart. While Hilly strives to accomplish her self-serving agenda, the pure-hearted Cecile serves up generous portions of grace and hospitality despite her ample servings of disappointment and pain. This conversation continued to expand within my life as I remembered being asked what I wanted several months before when I realigned my focus. Suddenly I saw a vivid picture of my house over run with people hanging out, an abundance of great food and the sense of extended family. Although I don’t consider myself a domestic diva, family is one of my top values, so expanding the vision seems natural. I was then reminded that the word “hospital” comes from the Latin word “hospes” which refers to either a visitor or one who receives the visitor.  The Hotel-Dieu was a French name often used for hospital in the Middle Ages, meaning the hotel of God. What one of us hasn’t felt like an outsider at one time or another and couldn’t use the bandage of hospitality as in the hotel of God? Most people can pick up the scent of calculated maneuvering that injures and separates in a flash and quickly flee from it. However, pull out a chair and offer a coke-cola like Cecile and you’d be amazed at the affect a little hospitality can have on people! © Copyright 2011 Moxie Me Institute, BE U LLC.

Gypsy Heart

 

Kimberism: Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.  ~Pablo Picasso Often I encourage clients to let their Gypsy Heart out to play! In the hustle and bustle of adult life it is easy to surrender the vitality of the childlike-heart we once possessed.

A friend of mine taps into what she refers to as her gypsy heart by running as fast as she can along a trail alone in the woods. She feels the wind blowing through her hair, connecting her to her untamed, wild heart, reminiscent of the Indian Princess she imagined being as a child.
