Project Athena - Day 123 (Fun!)

One Lara Leaping

A wise woman never plays leapfrog with a unicorn!
— Common Sense

Fun at Fort Collins City Park this afternoon with my partner who is all about fun!

It's amazing the wisdom that can come up in the lightness of laughter. Leap frog reminded to be conscious about the game of leap frog in life:

Taking short cuts rarely produces my desired outcomes. The unicorn is just one of the potential hazards of leaping over life lessons to "get" something or somewhere. IN other words, missing out on the experiences that life would offer to appear successful is missing out on life itself.

No goal is more important than the connections that are made along the path so be heart-full of who I leap over and how I leap over them. Rather than assuming that I will always be rewarded for my efforts and that everybody will be happy for me when I succeed, be grateful for anything  that feels in alignment with the highest and best for all concerned.

Life is a game with no "winners", just like leap frog. Whether leaping or being leapt over, I have felt extremely vulnerable at times and I imagine that those I have played the game with feel somewhat the same. Competition has almost always resulted in some emotional cost for me, all to uphold the illusion and image of being a  winner. Remember authenticity, symbiosis and cooperation are the core values guiding this lifestream.
