Sometimes we feel like we are fighting with ourselves.
One aspect or another feels like it is pushing for dominance.
It can even feel like we want to tear ourselves apart.
Yet there is a better way to view what is happening.
We tend to think in terms of war.
Of one side fighting to take control of the other.
It all feels so difficult.
It is more like a dance.
Flowing from one side to the other.
Perhaps one partner tries to keep the lead over the other.
Forcing things to go one way.
What was once a fight and a struggle inside of us can be perceived to be more fun.
We are no longer at war with ourselves.
Now, we can be flexible in our composure.
We can enjoy the performance and watch with curiosity.
So it no longer is about getting to a result.
It is now about how we play along the way.
We can learn to have more fun on journey.
When we allow ourselves to dance through life we find greater ease and grace.
A whole new way of being.
One where we stop condemning ourselves and feeling like we are stuck.
Now we can change the tempo or just change the music we are dancing to.
Is that not a better way to live?
So what in your life have you been battling with yourself where you can now dance with yourself?
