This morning I set the alarm early, before the dawn even thinks of cracking in order to work on my book. I got up. I tried to write. I made some things happen, slowly. Not sure if I have a jelly bean hangover from Easter or if my body just wasn’t ready to awaken so early, it has taken all morning to “wake up.” My walk, my yoga, my meditation, all of my practices that feed me took longer and I moved as if walking through molasses.
Sometimes we need to be patient with where we are even if it is uncomfortable.
Do you feel like you are moving through molasses today and things aren’t moving along as quick as you like? Relax. Often our timing is too rigid that it can’t see the possibility around the corner. Trust the slow work. Be patient with the process. Give yourself a hall pass.
Believe that you will wake up exactly when you need to. Cut yourself some slack. Often the effort of trying is enough.
