Transitions, they’re rarely easy. Important, yes, but seldom are they easy.
Life has been busy, I haven’t gotten out to walk in the woods very much lately, and I’ve been feeling it.
Busyness. Of late, I’ve been noticing a tendency of mine. I’ve been noticing how, in anticipation of the future change and transitions I spoke about last week, I have this tendency to overfill my present time, to “make the most” of the time I have left at this particular stage in my life. And of late, I’ve gotten a bit of much needed push-back due to that particular tendency of mine.
I’ve been noticing my reactions to that particular push-back. We all have a choice in how we’re going to react when we get feedback, right? We can choose to listen, to hear what those in our lives are saying, and to integrate that feedback if appropriate. Alternatively we can choose to shut that feedback down and dismiss it.
My dear friends, I hope, this week, when we get that inevitable feedback that might not always feel so good to us, we can listen and hear what those in our lives are saying a little more fully. Perhaps we can allow the people in our lives to feel a little more safe so they feel like they can speak into our lives. Perhaps we can integrate that feedback into our lives if that’s appropriate. None of us can do this alone, none of us can do this perfectly, may we be a little more receptive to the wisdom of those around us this week, even when it stings a bit.
I hope you have an amazing week, my friends.
