Welcome to Day 15 of the challenge. If you’re jumping in right now, be sure to check out the Welcome to the Triple Dog Dare to get started. The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post with a hyperlink.
I will approach all things in life with patience and tranquility.
Theme of the Day
You may feel chaos within, but do not let things get to you. Find your place of peace when things start to feel they’re becoming unraveled.
One of my favorite things to do is to people watch. The actions of others when they are not realizing they’re being observed is telling. To be clear, the observation is not done in a creepy stalker kind of way, but more along the lines of a short while. Then, I move on to another subject to create a mental sotry about what their lives are like, what their dreams are like, and what it would be like to engage in a conversation with them.
During my people watching moments in a local coffee shop, I saw a woman who was well-dressed, simple make-up that gave her a nice, clean look, her hair was styled elegantly, and she had on a pressed dress that was complimented by a nice neutral handbag. At first glance, my impression of her was that she was well put together and didn’t have a care I the world. She would come into the coffee shop here and there.
Life is all about timing. The unreachable becomes the reachable, the unavailable becomes available, the unattainable…attainable. Have the patience, wait it out as it’s all about the timing. – Stacey Charter
One day, her table was next to mine. Quick smiles and pleasantries were exchanged, then we went back into our own worlds. Two people dressed in fancy business suits took a seat before her and they all engaged in their own discourse. I didn’t pay any attention to it because I had my own deadlines to meet.
A good while later, the two people left and she leaned back only to take a huge sigh of relief. It was enough to catch my attention. She said under her breath that she was glad that encounter was over. I mentioned to her that not once did she ever look stressed and how I wish I had her composure. The look on her face was telling – my word “composure” did not match the feelings she felt inside.
She uttered the words: stressful, chaotic, big business deal, closing, and a few other things. Then, she went on to say that it went really well because she finally closed the deal. As she spoke, she reminded me of the Temperance Card in Tarot.
Every great player has learned the two Cs: how to concentrate and how to maintain composure. – Sally Ride
Many of us feel as if we show one side of ourselves to the public and we keep the other hidden. Temperance shows up in our lives to remind us that we are not alone in this. She’s an angel with large feathers and stands on the edge of the water. Just as we do in life, she does here — one foot is in the water and the other is on the ground. In the far off distance, you’ll see a bright burst of yellow, which suggests that the future is bright and this is what fuels the patience we carry inside.
You have ONE Triple Dog Dare Challenge today. Read the challenges and close your eyes to connect with what the challenge is asking of you. Allow yourself to walk through the experience and be sure to capture as much as you can with your words as well as intent.
Triple Dog Dare Challenge #1: Take a look at your calendar and see if you have any upcoming meetings that leave you all twisted up inside. Explore why you’re feeling as if your stomach is in knots. When you have identified some reasons why you’re feeling nervous/anxious about this meeting with this specific person, imagine they are sitting in front of you.
Close your eyes and hold onto the image of them in your head. They are sitting in front of you. Take a few deep breaths and play out how you would like the meeting to go. Have fun with it: imagine y’all are laughing and sharing funny stories, or imagine they just shared a weird story and you’re not quite sure what to do with it.
This will allow you to experience the wide range of emotions and get them out of the way, so when you have the actual meeting, you can control the apprehension or nervousness within you and project an air of confidence.
Once you’ve completed your Triple Dog Dare Challenge, celebrate that! Invite you to step out of your comfort zone and share with us in the comments below so we can celebrate with you.
