you rock


This has been on my mind a lot these days. In fact, my theme for this new year is "create space and embrace stillness". Thanks for sharing.

wow-it must have been in the cards for me to read this today-a day in which I have SO much planned-so many ideas to flesh out and so many projects to further. I feel like I'm always spinning.... It's a good and necessary reminder to me to sit back and be okay with being...and nothing more.
Thank you!


I am right with you. Can I just sit and bounce a baby on my knee, for pete's sake? There is enough time. In this short life, there is still enough time for people like us to feel like we've done enough at the end of it all. I trust!


i'm in the same head space right now. i need to keep reminding myself that it's ok to just be. to just let things happen for a while...

It's both scary and liberating to let go of these ideas about ourselves - that we are 'Hard-Workers' or 'Go-Getters' or 'Doers'

But in the end they were only ever ideas. We were no more with them and will be no less without them.

And as Karen points out, the next thing always appears by itself.


6512 and growing

I liked this post and work with the force of ambition a lot.

I recently took a day off, just one entire day off from writing and striving. I didn't turn on my computer. It was awesome.


"It is about sitting still in my discomfort with stillness, about trusting that my next goal, project or dream will unfold organically, in its own time, in its own unpredictable way."

Amen. Amen. Amen.

like laundry: it appears by itself!
