Life can be challenging. (Understatement.)
I said to a friend yesterday that when I look up I can see my destination, but I can’t see that I’m walking waist deep in mud, in a swamp. So I expect myself to get there and get angry when I am slow to move.
And you know what? This is perfectly okay. Though it would be more pleasant not to be angry with myself.
It is along these lines that over the past few days, something has shifted in me.
Yesterday I wrote out a list of some (not all) of the things I wanted to do regularly in my life. I looked at it and said to myself, “there is no way I will ever be able to coordinate time for all of this.”
So my guiding voice weighed in, that’s fine. Leave it to me.
I am reminded of a mantra I got from Wayne Dyer – “live from spirit, you are already connected to everything!”
So I could stress about whether or not I’ll get that job I want so much. Or I could write up some information for the work I’m currently doing.
I could go over and over a “diet list” I was given and get angry and resentful at all the tasty food I “have” to cut out. Or I could go juice a cucumber and allow it to nourish me clear through my body.
I could worry about the fact that I seem to have lost my keys. I could turn the house upside down trying to find them. Or I could acknowledge that I didn’t intend to leave the house today anyway, they will turn up, and go get my paints and get painting.
Leave it all to me, says my guiding voice.
Let’s try this living from spirit thing. I surrender. I’m on board.
