I've had this running list in my head for years: Stuff I Need to Upgrade. I'm grateful to have checked off a few big ones: "lose that stubborn weight," "make peace with food" and "love my body." But life's about a whole lot more than how we look and our relationship with ourselves.
As I approach my Mental Upgrade List from a more mature point of view, I've learned to ask myself: "Who am I in the world? Who do I become--and what am I capable of--when I get out of my own way?"
So now I'll bounce those questions back to you...Who are you when you get out of your own way? What gifts do you have to share with the world that you're not sharing now? What are you capable of when you become the most trusted partner and closest friend you've ever known?
...And to make it sustainable, how do you relax into that state of grace, peacefully and with ease?
