Accepting What We Don’t Like…

Posted by Katie Kovaleski on April 11, 2020 in Quick Facts

Wherever there is light there is shadow. And where there is shadow is cast an amplified perspective, a deeper understanding, an extension of compassion. Accept both (light & shadow) to sanctify the ground on which you stand. Reject one or the other and be damned”

Learning to love and embrace that we are equal parts light and shadow is a continuous lesson; one thing, one aspect, even repeated, does not solely define who we are, we are not fixed, unmovable or immutable. And it is up to us to embrace the shadows and fill them with light and acceptance. Not everyone will be able to go with you on what’s next in journey, the ones who are willing to do the inner work on their own and then join you in yours are your tribe.

And forget walking the talk – let’s quit talking altogether and just do the walking. The progress is in the action of forward momentum. We can talk all day about how to bake a cake, find a recipe, figure out how we think we should decorate it but if we don’t leave the house to buy the ingredients, if we refuse to accept help or guidance from others who have baked amazing cakes and we aren’t willing to let the kitchen get dirty AF as we make the cake, unsure of how or if it’ll turn out and still be committed to seeing it through – then we are all talk and will likely never taste the cake and get to share it with the world. Get up. Bake the cake. Commit to the cause and do what it takes, for however long it takes. The real work begins once the doubts and reservations set in.

“When we spend our lives waiting until we’re perfect or bulletproof before we walk into the arena, we ultimately sacrifice relationships and opportunities that may not be recoverable, we squander our precious time, and we turn our backs on our gifts, those unique contributions that only we can make, Perfect and bulletproof are seductive, but they don’t exist in the human experience.” Let’s get messy, together.
