Resistance is Futile
I have been suffering from a feeling of overwhelm this week. A lot of great things are happening so I am not complaining. I just feel like I am burning the candle at both ends and it's about the meet in the middle. I know the answer is to slow down before I burn out, but I seem to be stuck in the mindset that I can do it all and do it all NOW. In SARK's newsletter this month, she talks about resistance and letting go and going with the flow. I read this and started to really keep track of how much resistance I am putting out there. That it manifests every time I get upset about something, if things don't run as smoothly as hoped. I have been trying to re-frame my thinking each time and come back to center and try to let go of my percieved control. Do what you can and let life unfold.
Above are 2 books that I recieved from Sunny in a creativity exchange organized by Tara Dawn. They are just what I need. I surround myself with clutter and am constantly trying to dig my way out. I know this is just another form of resistance, so hopefully I will find a key in Sunny's words.
Remember, life if just easier if you don't resist.
