Sometimes we aim high just to aim and move on to the next thing, sometimes we stay where we are because of fear and lack of confidence to reach for that high branch. But “being steady where you are" to me means having confidence and being great at here and now. Being here out of choice not fear. When the next thing comes along and it’s where I am supposed to be, I will be ready.
I have been soaking in the loveliness of having time with my family. Part of me holds a fear that if we add more to our lives we will lose this moment where we are. Which is true. We only have this moment right now.
And then there is a quiet soft spoken part that keeps telling me… Enjoy it. Just enjoy it. Savor the time, listen and see everything around you because it’s ever changing. You only have now to enjoy. And that’s what I’m doing. I’m letting go, letting things happen or not happen and just being.
I felt like with extra time I should be studying or learning something new because that’s what I have been doing for so long and I felt such guilt NOT doing it.
Instead, I pick up a book and read for pleasure. It's a blast of fresh air, removing myself to Hogwarts and all its magical creatures and spells. The voices in my head stop. The hushed quiet part of me starts rejoicing and exploding, screaming YES! Let them go.
Looking at the goals I setup for myself, I know I am ahead in a few areas and right on track in others....right where I am supposed to be. Had I not been "on track" I would still say the same thing, I am where I am supposed to be. Because at the end of the day I am being steady right where I am at and being able to gain that strength and confidence in me right now and where I am at will get me ready for whatever is coming up, because I have let go.
I would love to hear from you in the comment section…
What do you need to let go to be steady where you are?
