A few weeks ago I was a passenger in a car with three (3) other people. Our driver’s cell phone rang, she answered it and just as quickly turned it off to the relief of all of us. I thanked her for not putting the “treasures” in the car at risk. “Treasures” I said. Where the heck did that come from? Do I view myself as a treasure? Do I value those around me as treasures? The answers to these questions did not require tons of reflection because those answers came to me within minutes in the form of an AHA moment. Of course we are all treasures and this seasoned woman has finally come to that realization. Each and every one of our treasuries is bulging at the seams with our talents and our creativity and our compassion and our accomplishments and our ability to bring joy to other treasures in our lives. So, why is our mojo playing hide and seek within us?
I just happened to pick up a book by Elizabeth Gilbert from my home library called “BIG MAGIC.” Interestingly, I had a page flagged which ties in beautifully to this Mojo Moment. This page says “And you have treasures hidden within you—extraordinary treasures—and so do I and so does everyone around us. And bringing those treasures to light takes work and faith and focus and courage and hours of devotion, and the clock is ticking, and the world is spinning, and we simply do not have time anymore to think so small.” Thank you Elizabeth. What more can I say?
