This last week was really fun! We work, we play, we relax, and that for us is what balance is all about. Taking care of yourself in all areas and allowing yourself the space to try new things.
Last week we drove down to Sandy, UT to meet with a sports and performance psychologist. The drive between Logan and Salt Lake is one of my favorites, especially through the canyon. Most of the time we make it not just a drive, but an ‘experience.’ It always usually involves getting coffee, talking about life, and yelling things out the window at other drivers/pedestrians. This time we were looking through the CD case and came across one of our most cherished albums from our Elementary years; Enrique Iglesias. It’s amazing how much you remember just by listening to an album! Our next door neighbors had cousins, who were brothers, that stayed with them (the summer this album came out). I totally forgot, but Alexa reminded me that they were our first kiss! Mine was on the ferris wheel at Lagoon, and Alexa’s on the trampoline. No wonder we love Enrique… and brothers! Haha We realized after re-singing the entire album back that some of the lyrics we used to sing when we were little didn’t register back then! “One Night Stand” in particular…
We’re almost to this really amazing place where we’re about to meet with this performance psychologist, and we get lost. So instead of driving on the street like a normal person, Alexa decides to go off-roading on sidewalks and green grass. Most people would be dying, but I just go with it! We have so much fun in the car & we’re laughing ALL THE TIME.
So we met with a sports/performance psychologist, Crag Manning, who travels all over coaching athletes, performers, people who are interested in performing at a high level. I’m fascinated by what he knows and what we were able to learn. Alexa and I have been studying for some time from some of our favorite authors, philosophers, spiritual teachers about the mind and our potential as human beings, and it was really nice to talk with Craig because he put it in a way that really resonated with and expanded belief in my own potential. It’s amazing to know that here in the present moment lies all of your ability to focus and engage in life. By Law of Attraction, what you focus on, expands. High performance people mostly stay focused on the things that make them good and look at one area of improvement. By training your mind to focus on what you do well, you’re focused into positive thought and by that, you will produce more of it’s empowering outcomes. There’s so much that we don’t know about the mind, but what I’m finding out is amazing! We’re so powerful. Wish I could share everything with you all, but I would like to put into practice some of these things and eventually share the benefit of my own experiences.
