follow the easy…
my dear friend,
why do we follow those things that drain our energy, zap our strength and feel like pulling teeth? life is not always a battle to be won. it’s not always time to take up our swords and fight to the death. it’s ok to do those things that bring you life. it’s ok to follow the peace and the knowing. those are the best things. the ones that just fall into place, that make your heart smile, that just feel right.
i am not saying that there won’t be those moments where we have to fight. but i believe that creativity should flow from a place of ease. and if we are continually striving and fighting for our place, we will miss the whispers. we will miss the quiet. we will miss the magic.
maybe it’s not time yet. so stop trying to hammer the square peg into the round hole, instead go looking for the square hole. it’s somewhere around here, if you would only stop and listen.
we get so caught up in our own accomplishments and constantly doing that we completely miss the big picture. we completely miss where our hearts are calling us.
and if we would only stop to do the hard work… the work of listening, really listening. the hard work of dreaming and waiting and working on who we want to be. i think if we would do that hard work, we would find that the path we are to take is staring us right in the face. that it’s been there all along.
life is not a sprint. it’s a marathon. and sometimes it’s a walk in the woods. and sometimes it’s a rest on the bench under the tree. and sometimes there is no reason to be running.
so follow the easy. it’s ok. i give you permission. it doesn’t mean that you aren’t following your dreams… it just means that there is an ebb and flow to life and creativity. the sooner you find the rhythm and the heartbeat, the sooner you will find your dreams.
