I was sitting at my computer one day when my blue-tooth mouse suddenly stopped working. A picture of a computer mouse appeared on my screen to tell me what I already knew. Underneath the image, the words read “connection lost.”
I couldn’t move forward with my work. I was frustrated and stuck. The mouse’s connection to my computer is responsible for facilitating nearly all the work I do during the day. When the connection is lost, I’m at a loss for what to do next.
As family law lawyers, we are given the gift of being able to help our clients through some of the toughest stuff they will ever experience in their lives. Sometimes the actions they take are for the best in the end, but nevertheless, the transition is a challenge.
During life challenges it is of the utmost importance to make sure our “connections” stay intact – whether they be connections to friends, family, doing the things that make us feel “whole,” or to Spirit. We need the grounding force that the good things in our lives give us. This is especially so when life has thrown us a curve ball or we have decided to be the “pitcher.”
During my divorce in 1995, it was my connection to God and the practice of yoga (it helped enhance my awareness of my connection to God) that kept me moving forward in an ever-evolving way. Sure, I made the mistakes that many young adults do.
But it was my connection to that which I hold the most importance – God – that helped me grow into the person I am today. It was this connection that assisted me in transforming those mistakes into learning lessons.
If you are going through a tough time, I encourage you to seek out the people, places and beliefs that nourish you, that keep you going. And when this challenging time ends (and it will end) remember what got you through and continue to seek it out. Those nourishing, good-for-you things in the good times will only serve to make your life that much better.
Affirmation: In this moment, I choose to participate in activities which nourish me and not deplete me. In this moment, I surround myself with people who nourish me and not deplete me. In this moment, I choose to feed my body foods that nourish me and not deplete me. In this moment, I choose the thoughts which nourish me and not deplete me. And so it is. Thank you, God.
