Today, for four hours I cut fire wood for my father hours alongside my husband. And using that chainsaw was a great reminder of how you cannot force anything in life, how you must allow the chain to do its thing and simply hold steady and watch carefully as the chain cuts through the wood. .
This picture has captured perfectly the power and empowerment I feel in my life right now. .
Our ego tries to control, tries to put on a show, our ego turns outward in search of what we should be humbly turning inward in search of. .
This picture bears my soul in a way unlike any other. .
As I was cutting wood all afternoon I was continuously reminded of how we must remain calm and patient in moments of stress, how you can't force the machine or you'll pay the price, how my strength here is paying it forward as I cut firewood for my father who no longer can. .
How my understanding of the core and muscle control was helping me control the chainsaw and throw logs I had just cut into the skidsteer, how my balance was put to real-time use balancing on logs as I worked with a machine that with a slip if my hand could in a second cut a limb. .
I kept telling my husband I wanted and needed to learn how to use the chainsaw and drive the skidsteer and today I just did it. .
I am at a point in my life now where I don't have time to do things that have little value, for show, to boost my ego. .
I want to spend my time doing things that matter with and for those I can serve who are in need of what I can offer out. .
I look forward to working with you in a way I can serve you best.
