There is a lot of thinking going on right now. So much consideration might make you restless and even a bit intolerant whether it is of someone else or of yourself. Have you ever felt like you might explode from impatience or even anticipation if things don’t begin to happen? This kind of energy can show up more like the feeling you have when you are stuck in traffic, then the feel you had when you were a kid, sitting at the head of the kitchen table in front of a slew of birthday presents.
Over the weekend, see if you can shift from the “Come on, come on. MOVE!” narrative. You know the one. It is where you think nobody else is in a hurry too. It is the one where you might even feel like you are loosing respect for others or yourself. Shift out of that storyline and into the one where June Cleaver is your mom. You know June won’t make you wait that long before you can dive into all that you’ve been imagining is in store for you.
Resist arguing with others and yourself. Take it easy. Use your breath. Breath in for the count of 4, hold it for 2, and exhale for 6. Feel your feet on the ground. Feel your feet on the ground. And as Sister Anthony always said, “Three times and it is yours,” so one more time – feel your feet on the ground.
Lighten up. Let the sun shine. See the big picture. Keep that perspective. Because otherwise, it might be a lot of drama.
