What is the color of your sky?
Where's the picture? You tell me. Where's the picture? What is your picture? What color is your sky? Is is bright and sunny or dark and gloomy? Do you even know? Do you take time out to check in with yourself? To see how you are really feeling. What is really going on. Sometimes you can get so busy checking in, seeing how everyone else is doing, the boss, husband, girlfriend, son, sister, friend, dog walker that we forget to check in with ourselves. So close your eyes. Well, wait a second. I am just prepping you for you need to get your instructions first. But seriously, how many of you really closed your eyes? I am going to want you to in a minute for you are going to take 3 minutes to do a simple but informative exercise. This is your 3 minutes. And no matter what goes on in your day you had these 3 minutes. For some of you this will be a first. What are you going to do with these three minutes you ask? Feel. Yes, feel, I want you to close your eyes and just feel. FEEL? What do you mean? Feel, don't try to do anything or be anything just be quiet and listen to yourself. Some of you may like what you are feeling and some of you are going to come unglued. Whatever it is just accept it. Don't fight it. Now, after you have done this I want to add one last piece to the puzzle, an essential piece, and that is I want you to paint your own picture. See it clearly. Feel it... That's right... So what is the color of your sky? What color would you like it to be? It may be a pale blue today, empty with no clouds but that doesn't mean that tomorrow it won't be a vibrant blue with pregnant, dancing clouds all around.
