Well, not really my soul. More like my ego.
No, it's not exactly that either.
It usually happens when I'm going through a rough stretch physically or emotionally. I sit there before the beautiful faces of my workshop attendees and I think, If they really knew what goes on in me, they'd never come to my workshops.
Then, in an act of impassioned integrity, I proceed to tell them all my crazy problemsâ€¦.. Just in case they want to know.
Last night's workshop in NY was one of these. Fortunately, the wonderful folks who come to my workshops seem to put up with my explosions of un-asked-for honesty with kindness. (In fact, thank you to those who sent me emails today about how much you got from last night's workshop!)
We actually had a few good laughs.
My point is this: Sometimes it's just good to laugh at yourself. And if you can get an audience while you're doing it, so much the better.
I encourage you to catch yourself in a moment when you might judge yourself. See what it would take to turn this into a comedy routine.
Laugh at yourself with Love. It's fun.
And if you want a really good example of how to do this, turn to page 170 of your bright red copy of 101 Great Ways to Improve Your Life. There you'll find Laura Lallone's chapter called "Just Like Chicken" and I think you'll get the idea loud and clear. She'll have you laughing out loud as you come to a place of greater self-appreciation and acceptance. I recommend it.
