I am willing to accept lessons as they come, knowing each one provides an outlet for maturity, and I am keenly aware that I am modeling by example to the world around me. There is still much for me to learn and much for me to share. Every moment is an opportunity to learn, grow, and expand into a fully embodied ME. I am both a teacher and a student in every moment.

Sometimes when I am faced with a dilemma or a challenging situation I like to ask myself, “what is my role here, teacher or student?” That question is a gamechanger. It shifts me into a mindset role and it sets me on an intentional path to either help or to learn. It really is a simple technique, but I love how it sets me up for success either way.
This week we are encouraged to be aware of the roles we play in our day to day life. Are we going through life blissfully unaware of our impact on the world around us and the worlds impact upon us? Or are we intentionally living in the awareness of the moment soaking up the gifts that are only found in the present? We have amazing teachers all around us and they come in many different forms…and you are one of them. Embrace your roles as you begin to expand into a fully embodied version of YOU!
