During a coaching session last week with my coach, she said:
Dance with whatever knocks at your door.
It’s a phrase someone had told her once, I believe, and it hit me hard. In a good way, I might add.
The way I see it, I don’t control what comes knocking on my door. Chance, fate, serendipity, accident, coincidence…. whatever you want to call it, I don’t have control over it. But I can chose to dance with it, whatever it is. That’s a choice I have. It might not be my preferred dance partner, it might not be the dance of my choice, but regardless of that, I can dance with it.
I get to dance.
That’s what I realized during that coaching session.
I get to dance. With whatever comes knocking at my door. And I love to dance. I really really love it, so thinking about life in this way, that I get to dance with whatever comes knocking on my door, makes me all tingly inside. I can dance through life!
Life doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
