Del and I have been watching the Netflix series called the Crown. It’s so interesting to see the story of Queen Elizabeth’s life. As I watch it my admiration for QE has grown tremendously . I suppose I was like other people in America, barely registering that there is a Queen, wondering how old is she anyway, and perhaps thinking that the phrase, It’s good to be queen is actually true. Now I know it’s not. The life of being a queen wasn’t one that Elizabeth chose. She was born to it. Imagine a life planned for you. There is no choice. You will be queen. You will become an Institution more than a person. What if you wanted to be a dancer, or an artist, or back pack through Europe and sleep on friends couches. What if you wanted to live in a tiny house, be a musician, disappear from the world? None of that would be possible. Instead Queen Elizabeth lives and governs bound by rules set up for centuries, and by mostly men. Within the confines of a life chosen for her, we can see she lives by intention. The intention to be both a good queen, and a good woman. And that’s what I want to talk about in this mini shift the story podcast. Intents. Intention. The power of intention.
