"When you ask for positive change in your life, make no mistake, you are calling the whirlwind." In this video I talk about how to weather life's "perfect storms." The blog post I refer to is here: http://marthabeck.com/2016/09/the-storm-before-the-calm/
YOUR SUFFERING IS TRYING TO HELP YOU. We all encounter times of suffering, and when we're in the middle of it, pain often feels pointless. It isn't. I hope today's video helps those of you going through such a time, and if you know someone who could benefit from hearing this, go ahead and tag them in the comments. Love, Martha
Your relationship is not supposed to be perfect all the time, your business is not supposed to do well all the time, your soufflés are not supposed to raise perfectly all the time. Everything is designed to go wrong so that you can gain the skills of rediscovering your tracks, even in difficult or frightening circumstances. Especially in difficult and frightening circumstances.
Guys, I've been up for eight solid days—even accidentally putting lip gloss on my eyes—because I'm so out-of-my-mind excited that the AMAZING Elizabeth Gilbert liked my new book, "Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening!" She even "blurbed" it for me!!!!! She wrote: "This book is everything. It’s a romp, a fable, a myth, an inspiration, a teachable moment, a true hero’s journey, a cautionary tale, and a fairy tale for an entirely new (or rather, ANCIENT) species of fairies. It’s rare that so much wisdom can be found wrapped up in such comedy, such kindness, such lightness of touch. It’s a perfect book. I want every woman I know to read it. This is storytelling at its very best, and also at its most important." WHEEEE! http://33.media.tumblr.com/96de961383e832756a9f7506e81acfba/tumblr_inline_mh3ephDhAc1qlnp6j.gif Link
