This Was So Embarrassing…
Picture this, we’re sitting face to face, deep in the trenches of a private session, the pieces are connecting and all of a sudden we’re startled because we hear the door creak as it slowly opens. No it’s not a ghost! Instead, someone’s telling us our time is up, they need the room.
OMG! Major schedule snafu. Improvise. ASAP!!
Flying by the seat of my pants I realize there’s a stoop outside. Surely not glamorous. Definitely not ideal. Other options? Nope, this has to be quick we’re at a crucial point and I’m not gonna leave ya hanging!
Thank God it’s not raining! I’m breaking a sweat, embarrassed and horrified as I pack-up. We head outside toward the cold cement stoop. Pick up right where we left off and finish the session. It was a unique one for sure!
This is a true story that happened, but what occurred later floored me…
Over a year later I received an invite to the 1st anniversary of a yoga studio but she was unsure if I remembered her (as if I’d ever forget her!) Turned out that sessionwas instrumental in its birth. Now, she’s moved into a larger space and is celebrating her 5 year anniversary!
Why Share This Embarrassing Story?
I determined the quality of that session based on the upheaval of the environment and a mistake that was outside my control, instead of the quality of what was provided. My assessment of the value was completely wrong!
Without awareness of how I was assessing the information, I couldn’t accept something I didn’t know I was rejecting. Have you ever missed the mark on the value of something you shared? Do you know what criteria you use to determine your value, self-worth or importance in the world?
It was an eye-opener for me!
And now…I’m super excited to announce the launch of our brand new series ABCs of Your Soul™. Of course, it’s jam-packed with tools to develop awareness of blindspots so you can make better choices & have healthier communication. Psst, the first workshop is at her new location in Harleysville, PA on Monday, June 26 from 6-8 pm!
