Well, Yes, You Really Screwed That Up. But I Really Like Your Hair!

The other day in class, the stereo was acting up. The sound wasn’t working right.  Suddenly it would get loud and then get very quiet.  Also, within songs, it would drop a few tracks.  I got very confused and distracted because of this.  What I realize is that there are places in the music, “rocks in the road,” that guide me when I need to change the movement.  I didn’t realize that I use some of these tracks unconsciously.  Until they were gone. 

My clients are actually used to my confused behavior at times.  Luckily they have a sense of humor.  A friend of mine who was in the class thought I was laughing at a bad hair day---I guess I was pointing to my head to indicate actually a bad brain day.  Anyway, she said to me from across the room, “I really like your hair!”  I said, “Thank you!”  But I love this because it reminds me that our friends will always find something good to say.  “Yes, you screwed up, but I really like your hair!”  It is a mixture of honesty and love that I am so happy to have in my life. 

Just like the tracks in the familiar song, your friends and loved ones are “rocks in the road” that guide you to yourself and your truth.   Let’s be conscious of and grateful to these angels.  What would we do if they were gone?

  1. Being that you are one of those ever-present angels in my life, Susie, let me take this time to say, "Thank you!" I don't even like to touch on the thought of what my life would be like without those "rocks in the road!" xxoo
