Watching those leaves at the top of the tree? Superb. How does it feel? The air on your face -- is it cold? Your breath billows of steam? Did you forget your coat? No worry. This mindfulness won't take long.
When the life you have been living no longer is the life you are designed to keep living, in essence, the jig is up. For me, it went down like this: "Greg, get out of your mind or go out of your mind."
If you learned something, grew mentally, spiritually and emotionally from the relationship and can look back with love, gratitude, forgiveness and compassion -- I consider THAT a successful relationship!
Despite all appearances and feelings to the contrary, what's happening is actually a hell of a lot. The universe is bringing everything to a standstill in order to conspire to help you become the person you were meant to be.

How much control do you really have in your business? Do you know what to do with it? Does having it help you or hold you back in your business? What about when you want to change something? Does control help you then?
Maui. Sunshine. Adventure. What's not to like? After all, the beaches and sites on the Hawaiian Islands' next-to-youngest entity (The Big Island) are a plenty that many writers have been spotlighting them in books and magazines for quite some time.
