My latest challenge is a culmination of sorts of all the challenges I’ve been exploring this month. While all the work I’ve been doing has been about pushing beyond limits and reshaping my life, today’s practice involves a different way of approaching not just these challenges but life itself.
Today’s challenge: Stop fighting. Go with the flow of life. Use this flow to gauge whether what you’re doing is really what you want to do. When it is not flowing, go elsewhere. Go where you’re wanted. Want where you’re going. See where you can flow in all areas of your life. Give up the struggle.
In all these years I’ve been good at powering my way through trouble spots. I’ve used my will and stubbornness to achieve the impossible. This hard-driving ambition has gotten me results all over the place, but what is the balance of these results in the overall scheme of things?
I have proven that I can get things done. It’s time for me to stop proving. It’s time to go where I’m wanted to–to pay attention to cues and do what comes naturally. To flow, I need to pay close attention to what’s happening around and within me. When I flow, I can live a life that is true for me. I will love where I’m wanted. Want where I’m loved. There will be no struggle or sorrow. Somehow, it will all work and make sense and if it doesn’t I will do something else…with great ease. What does your flow look like?
Today’s victory: In a stupendous win for losing wait, I plotted out the rest of the entries for my blog this month and I have a plan to complete my NaNoWriMo writing challenge.
Gratitude: I am grateful for the solutions that show up even in the darkest hours.
On the horizon: Coming to terms with wanted things
