Last week I was irritatedly walking through the woods, remember?
I’ve been sitting in that for the past few days, sitting in the thought of being “in a hurry” during my walk.
There’s this space in my life right now where, at times, I am really good at walking through this space slowly. I’m really good at feeling my feelings, at looking at my emotions, at seeing the areas where growth and change are required and in doing that very necessary work.
And there are times when I just want to be in a hurry in this particular space in my life. There are times when I just want to put my head down, stop looking around and observing where I’m at and feeling my feelings, and simply walk on through.
My dear friends. There are times when we just want to put our heads down and hurry through the hard times in our lives. There are times when we don’t want to look around, when we don’t want to see and feel, when we just want to forge ahead.
But dear friends, what will we miss along the way if we don’t take the time to slow down, to feel our feelings and to see the areas where growth and change are required? What will we miss when, instead of doing that necessary work, we simply move through without looking and observing?
I hope, this week, you can see and observe. I hope you can show up for the necessary work in your life even when it is hard and scary, even when it is the thing you don’t want to do.
I hope you have an amazing week my friend.
