Floating away… As I laid out floating in the dark in silence my thoughts were racing 100 miles an hour. Thinking about the last few weeks I realized that I was only a turn or two away from crashing into a massive wall. The last few weeks I have been in a controlled drift on cruise control without even knowing that I was drifting…challenges in business, new challenges working life (which I created), kids sick, wife traveling, I’ve been on the road 2 of the last 4 weeks, my wife 2 of the last 4 weeks, business growing, marathon, injuries, etc… and very little space for Franco. As the minutes went by everything started to slow down. My thoughts became more manageable. I started to see the drift that I couldn’t see before, and I put my hands gently back on the steering wheel. For the first time in weeks I started to feel like I was back in the driver seat. As the float session came to an end I opened my eyes and realized that I wasn’t drifting at all…I was exactly where I chose to be…in a float tank on a date with myself for the first time in a few weeks. Moral of the story is that no matter where I find myself…crashing into a wall OR meditating in a float tank…I CHOSE IT. We all choose what we experience in our life. We choose being overwhelmed, exhausted, overworked, angry, empty, lonely, etc… We choose peace, love, fulfilled, space, expansion, connection, tranquility, creation, etc… If what you are experiencing isn’t working… NO GUILT, NO SHAME, NEW CHOICES! #selflove #selfcare
