It’s just a choice away…showing up and choosing to be present…. when? where? how? with whom?

just a choice away,,,showing up and choosing to be present

“Showing up….choosing to be present”
being “present”….physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually,
choosing…
when? where? how? with whom? how much? how often?

~
So many choices…possibilities…opportunities
Choosing thoughtfully and openly

~

Sometimes…. perhaps, choosing to go “out” into the world
going out through open doors…
choosing….when? where? how? with whom?
exploring, investigating,
connecting, joining, participating, contributing…

it’s just a choice away

~

just a choice away...choosing when where how to show up

~

Other times, perhaps choosing to stay “home”
leaving those doors “closed”
staying within one’s “home”…
choosing to be present with, and within, oneself….
sometimes, a positive and appropriate choice…
just a choice away

~

just a choice away... when where how closed door

~

There’s usually a choice…
realizing and making proactive, positive choices,
living with continuing, reflective flexibility…
open doors… freely going out
closed doors…choosing to stay “home”

~

just a choice away...boht open and closed doors

~

Living with a sense of curiosity and exploration,
whether coming “home” into one’s own mind, home into one’s own house…
or going out into the wider world,
living with that wonderful sense of curiosity and exploration

~

just a choice away curiosity~

So many possibilities, opportunities and places to participate and contribute…
all those possibilities are “just a choice away………”

~

just a choice away open door choosing

~

May we each choose reflectively, effectively, flexibly and well…
in whatever manner works in each moment
“showing up…choosing to be present… it’s just a choice away!”

I read and heard about this idea of “showing up and choosing to be present…it’s just a choice away!” in  a wonderful Angeles Arrien  book and year long “Four Fold Way” workshop that I’m participating in each Wednesday evening…showing up and choosing to be present…it really is just a choice away!

  1. Ah Yes! 4 ways to be here now!! Good thing to remember on tax day.
    Did You get to see the Blood moon last night or did you have fog like we did?

  2. oh yes…4 ways… leader, healer, teacher and visionary… physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually….double 4’s !!!! 🙂
    Oh dear…tax day? having to “show up,” whether we want to or not!
    And yes…happily, we did get to see the Blood moon last night…no fog!….it was clear here! We watched with fascination, from both outside and inside looking out at it through a bedroom window… what a remarkable sight that was! As fascinating as it was, it was nice when it went back to looking so bright (!!!) and white, after it was out of Earth’s shadow. 🙂

    Well said! If we could only get ourselves to be fully “present”, free from the automatic reactions based on the past, it would open up a world of choices and possibilities. That’s the way to live life!

    • oh yes…. “What if ___________?” and “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if_______________?” …. so many more choices might be possible… 🙂
      (pman777 is my husband, so he has seen a whole series of new pages I’ve been creating and reflecting upon… using
      “what if I could _____________?” and
      “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could__________?”
      Ohhhhh….wouldn’t it be wonderful!?! 🙂

    While making choices isn’t always easy, it is freeing to know we have options! Thanks for visiting and the “like”!

  5. This is wonderful! It makes me think about my blogging journey. Among the things I have done in my life, I’m so glad I entered the blogosphere where I challenged myself to become more engaged by visiting and commenting, not to mention how high my rabbit ear antennae have gone up to “sniff” (a bit of synesthesia there) out a story. This reflection has to be among my favorites now included with “Don’t call me now,” and “Stillness” seemingly on the other end of the spectrum.

    • Yes…your wonderful blogging journey! Georgette, you’ve created a wonderful sense of interaction and community in your blog!
      The ideas in this post offer ideas for dealing with some fluctuating challenges for me…and others if they relate…of getting “out into the world” and not just staying in my own little world! (the past 5 months have needed some big adjustments in my life here…and withdrawing is so tempting)
      Funny…. “Don’t call me now” 😀 and “stillness”… staying inside the “home”…just a choice away?… IF those calls don’t come in! ( I have the oval doorway with “just a choice away” printed out as a reminder for myself)
      “synesthesia”…great word! had to look it up as a literary term….I went to “sniff” out that word… what a yummy synesthetic word! 🙂

    So true. It’s all about choice, isn’t it? Even when we don’t make a choice, we make a choice. Wonderful post, Kathy. 🙂
