AFGO


A very wise woman once told me to look at the obstacles that I come across in life as “AFGO’s”. Every AFGO is “Another F**cking Growth Opportunity” (please pardon my language). This wise woman was quite refined, so I was surprised by her articulation of this concept – but I think it gets the point across well! Anyways, this idea is ancient wisdom; that our obstacles or challenges are there to teach us what we need to learn to become more self actualized, meaning that we realize our personal potential in actuality. Once we see our obstacles as opportunities for growth and we are not in emotional reaction mode – the real work (and the magic) begins. Whether it means setting better/more boundaries, slowing down, speeding up, being more present, saying yes, saying no, etc. – we need to take our cue’s from the pain in our lives. Within us are the solutions to our own problems. A friend of mine has a great t-shirt that says “get your mind right” – which sums it up perfectly. It’s all about perspective and orientation to our obstacles – do we get stronger, smarter and more skillful so we can get over the hurdle, or do we shrink, contract and avoid? We choose. With love, always... Julie
