Is not easy…
To take it day by day. Moment by moment. Breath by breath.
I’ve been trying to do this while I wait for some really exciting stuff to happen…
Well, first I was just plain waiting without much advocating. Waiting for
something someone (eek!) to change my life. Then, I got real. I thought: SERIOUSLY!! How daft?! And, so I did what I do. I said a lot of ‘yeses’ and ‘yes I am interesteds…’ I believe deeply in stirring the pot of opportunity.
And, there was stuff on the bottom of my pot. (Hint: There is stuff on the bottom of all of our pots!) The good brown bits that make everything yummy. The crud that becomes bold, powerful opportunity. Yet. Like a good sauce, it takes time. No microwaved life is amazing!
Turns out I stink at patience. And, slow-cooking 😉
(Then she got a crock-pot!)
I think it has to do with impulsiveness. That sprinkle of tomfoolery I have. And, my impulsiveness makes me a great coordinator. I get shit done. It’s not perfect. It’s not prudent. But, it’s out there…
(Except I do tend to burn my tongue!– literally and well…)
So, how do I keep patient when the desire is there? Breathe and wait. Breathe and enjoy?!!
Seriously. I’m asking here…
Before I burn my tongue (again)!
