Do You Run With The Wolves…or From The Wolves?

Before you begin to read this post, I highly recommend listening to this kick-butt tune…pay particular attention to VERSE 3…

What did you feel as you listened to I Love Myself Today?

I am a singer/songwriter.  I enjoy many types of music, but, at heart, I am a rocker.  I love being amped up with metal and rock music, like this tune, when I work out.

Actually, I like to be amped up by this kind of music regardless of what I am doing!  I love to feel my life-force pulsing through my veins, firing me up for my best day ever!   It’s not just about the driving beat; not just about the lyrics that declare that this woman is not going to take anyone’s BS anymore; it’s a declaration of a woman who is committed to living a full-speed, full-out, in-your-face, unapologetic, vibrant life!

I invite you to play the song again, as I offer you this challenge:

Are you worth this investment?

Are you, right NOW, willing to run?

Listen to your body…if you are feeling a HELL YES!!!!, know that this is the challenge taken up by the peaceful spirit warrior inside you!

Okay, warrior, let’s dig in…

Are you willing to invest time and energy in your vibrant health?  What excuses come up?  Write them down.

You have just uncovered a pack of wolves, perhaps in sheep’s clothing!  Who, or what, in your life is more important than your vibrant health?  These are the wolves that you are afraid of, grovel to, and run from.

Are you the Alpha in your life?

Ask yourself, “If I am not the Alpha, who or what is being served by my degradation?” 

How can you serve in your family, your community, the world…how can you be true to your purpose for waking up today on this side of the grass, if you are not strong, vital, and confident enough to run with the pack, let alone lead your own?

This does not mean that you come out swinging – that is the mindset of the novice.  Play the song again, if you need to be reminded!  🙂

The seasoned peaceful spirit warrior understands that time and gravity have a way of counting coup…and that your vibe, truly, determines your tribe.

Play the song one more time.  Warrior, turn it up LOUD!

Feel that shot of adrenaline? That surge of emotion?

That’s you!  You’re Alive!

Would you rather run from the pack or, race with the pack?

You decide.  This is your life, not your half-life!
