Doing laundry this weekend, I wanted my husband not to overload the dryer. Instead of explaining it in plain, concrete terms, I asked him to ensure our clothes were tumbling joyfully. He understood immediately and we laughed.
As I tumble joyfully through my life, I strive to embrace everything I experience with strength, joy, determination, grit, gratitude, steadfastness, groundedness, happiness and appreciation. It means using a longitudinal lens and looking for the deeper meaning. It involves opening my heart to all the lessons before me. Sometimes, I need to ask for time, space or support to tumble, evolve and grow.
Sometimes it is easy; sometimes not, but the transformational end result is always worth it.
