As I write this edition of Monday Morning Coach, I am sitting in a
cozy Chinese restaurant experiencing the worst hair day ever. I
just came from my doctors office where I had a brain scan. In
short, they filled my head with goop and attached 21 electrodes to
my scalp in order to measure my brain waves. The good news is that
my test went wonderfully; the bad news is that I look like a woman
who has lost a wrestling match with my hair products.
I am quite proud of myself being able to sit here in this
restaurant without the urge to tell everyone why I (and my crazy
hair) look so silly. I keep thinking that the urge should be there,
but its not. I really dont care. Maybe its the fact that I dont
know a lot of people here, or perhaps its because I am over the
age of 40. I guess the real truth is that I know that everyone else
in this restaurant is so busy living their own fast-paced lives
that they probably arent even noticing.
Isnt that the way life is? We can get so wrapped up in our own
little universe that we really do come to believe that our world
does revolve around us? Thats the paradox. From a place of
cause and effect we are indeed living and creating from the center
of our own universe, but when it comes to the outer reality that we
live in, so is everyone else (living from the center of their own
universe, that is). Is it any wonder that at times we can feel
isolated, crazed and confused?
How often have you created a story in your head (or in your life,
for that matter) that you were convinced was important and then
came to realize it was nothing more than a drama you created? How
refreshing (and humbling) it is when you realize that things arent
nearly as dramatic or important as you thought they were. More
importantly, by shifting your focus and intention, youll find that
you can experience a sense of sanity again. Think about it; by
changing your internal dialogue or story, you can change your life.
How great is that?
What internal story or dialogue are you holding onto that is time
to release? What might happen if you did?

Kabul Beauty School: An American Goes
Behind the Veil (paperback) by Deborah
(Author), Kristin Ohlson (Author)
In 2002, just months after the
Taliban had been driven out of Afghanistan, Rodriguez, a hairdresser from
Holland, MI, joined a small nongovernmental aid organization on a mission
to the war-torn nation. That visit changed her life. In Kabul, she
chronicles her efforts to help establish the country's first modern
beauty school and training salon. The memoir offers a glimpse into a
world Westerners seldom see-life behind the veil.
