This is what my life has been feeling like recently...a bit jumbled, going off in all directions and fractured in that "start...stop...start...stop...start...stop" way. A definite lack of flow. And energy. And even sleep.
The theme that keeps running through my head is that there's not enough time to get it all done and yet I know my life is quiet compared to most...I'm retired, I don't have to get up in the morning and throw myself into a busy day of children, school, work and all that it entails. So I've been wondering...what's up with this?
I know from talking to others, that I'm not the only one feeling this rush...this pressure to squeeze it all in...that time seems to be shooting by at warp speed and leaving me in it's dust. There are days when I yearn for the life of a hermit and yet I love people and everything that being connected to others brings...the sharing, the laughter, the love. Maybe it's just my age but I know others (much younger "others") who've been feeling the same way.
Last night...via Facebook...I was sent a quote that was just what I needed to hear...sometimes the epiphany happens as simply as that!
"You get there by realizing you're already there".
Yes. Of course. I knew that. I know that. I'd just forgotten. I AM peace...I don't have to find peace. I'm peace at the core of my being and anything else is just an illusion that I'm tempted to believe. When I relax into the knowing that the things that are important to me will get done (but maybe not on my schedule!), then it happens with ease and in ways often completely unexpected...ways that could never be anticipated. I make way for Grace.
One of the many things I've been busy with recently has been to resize some of the images that I produced for Veronica Torres/Eloheim last winter. We're having several printed as cards which entails resizing the images (and every element within each image individually) to ensure that the proportions still work. I'm excited about this project even though it's picky and yes...it "takes time".
I've also been creating an outdoor mosaic wall hanging and have started knitting a new shawl project. More on those to come.
(Sending a huge hug and thank you to sweet Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow for tapping me on my virtual shoulder and gently nudging me back here.)
Blessings dear friends and thank you for visiting...and for hanging in here in my absence,
