Are YOU Living from 10 and 2?
Updated: Apr 10, 2020
I was driving yesterday and noticed my hands at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel. I don't usually drive this formal so it made me pause. Why were my hands placed like this? It got me thinking... In times of stress, we come back to the boundaries....we go inside the cage and we forget to come out. We are scared. We go back to the rules, we go back to coloring inside the lines and the fun goes away, the laughter fades, the playfulness subsides. We sit up straight and place our hands at 10 and 2- we follow the rules. Does following the rules make us less stressed? No! Worrying and "thought looping" makes us forget how to play.
Can you imagine a time when you were really having fun? Pause for a second and remember that time.... really picture it. Hear the sounds, what smells do you remember? What colors are vibrant? Who is there with you? Where do you feel it in your body?
When you were having fun and truly in the moment, you were laughing, you were light, you were YOU! You were in the moment and really just living. No thoughts about the future... You were not lamenting about the past. You were just there. In the THERE, was freedom. There was life and you were living it.
Today, can you find even a moment where you let go. You remember and you play. You let the hands slide down the wheel and you loosen your grip, you turn the music up, roll down the window and you just PLAY. You are FREE!
