Day 178- When a Moment of Opportunity Comes Along.....

The following is a recent example of self will, self determination/motivation self directed decision that was made in a moment of opportunity. I am sharing this because it was quite cool to see it unfold and how my physical body in that moment was lively so to speak to move and embrace the moment.

We had scheduled a playdate for our son with friends we have not seen in some time. My son enjoys playing with their son and we really should see each other more often for play dates and family time.
It was Sunday morning and it has snowed the night before which meant we had to shovel the drive way to get out. As I woke up that morning I contemplated if we should even get up, because of the snow. Thought about rescheduling and being lazy came up. And I had almost decided that I was not going to wake up my husband and that we will be rescheduling the play date. But then in the next moment, I recalled how excited my son was about this play date and how I would be letting him down for a lame "have to shovel the snow" excuse. Within working with the Desteni process and tools I have learned to be aware of moments when making excuses that are not self honest/valid...so I knew within me that this was a lame, unjustified excuse. So I decided that I will not let this stop me and within this one moment I was determined that I will make this play date happen. I got up, got dressed for the weather and went to test to see if I will be able to shovel the snow (being pregnant and stuff). The snow was light and it was easy to move from one side to the other. So even thought it was super duper cold outside- my body was full of warmth moving around. I of course listened to my body- not to push myself hard. The driveway was done and I was proud of myself. I woke up my husband (who was on the same wave as I was when I woke up...not really up for going to the playdate). I told him I am making breakfast and we both got ready. My son was at my mother-in law so they dropped him off and we were on our way to have some family fun time.

So within this example, I see how all the pieces came together as a moment of opportunity came and I took it and because it was a self directed decision the experience of the moment unfolding was awesome. I was totally in that moment moving myself with every breath.

I am using this moment as an example for myself for other moment of opportunities where I have a choice- let my mind lead me or step up and let myself lead me.
