My Powerful AHA Moment

by Brenda Poulsen | Posted in Passionate Results   No Comments »

I have been trying to figure out what to write about this week. I had a big AHA moment yesterday. Then, when I was watching So You Think You Can Dance today, that AHA moment was re-enforced with a power that is as strong as love.

First the AHA moment. I was having a chat with myself while I folded laundry. Just general life stuff, nothing really important. Then…BAM! This came out of the blue and I was awe struck. Not only from the weight that this AHA carries but also from my own cleverness 😉

“Life doesn’t come to you…you come to LIFE!”

I thought, “OMG…that is SO true!” There are so many people waiting for their life to begin whether that includes finding the perfect partner, job, haircut or whatever it is. But they don’t realize that for their life to begin, they have to come to life. I was/am still so intrigued and excited by this thought.

So how does SYTYCD fit into this? Watching the way those dancers fill up that stage and dance with such grace, showmanship and talent awes me. Then to stand before the judges not knowing for sure what they will say. Their smiles are so big and excited and hopeful for their future….that is when it hit me square in my heart.

After 5½ years of being without my amazing wonderful husband, I am still waiting for my life to begin. The tears poured down my face. The ache and longing for Ole tearing apart my heart. Then understanding the real purpose of my AHA moment.

I have to come to LIFE!

Ole and I had such a full life. We did most everything together. We laughed, we loved, we cried, we argued, we made up. But our life was never humdrum or dull. We came to life so easily with each other. We didn’t wait for life to come to us. There was always a project we were working on. There was always something we were striving for. There was always something to do.

And there was always love.

The thing I find most amazing about this AHA moment is once I understood what this really meant to me, I could feel how empty I still am inside. I though I was filling up and building my new life with going to school, new friends, new ideas, etc. But I have not COME to life yet.

I don’t know what it will take to feel like I am full of life again like I did with Ole, but I think I took a huge step in the right direction from my AHA moment.

Just take a couple minutes and think about your own life. Do you feel filled with LIFE? Are you COMING to LIFE or are you waiting for life to come to you?

I hope you can feel the POWER of this AHA moment as much as I have because this is a doozy. At least for me.

Passionate regards….Brenda
