Good Morning!

Have you ever found yourself feeling antsy, wanting to "just do something!" but not knowing what?

In my old days as an adrenaline-crazed stock broker, my motto was "ready, fire, aim!" I often jumped into things more out of discomfort than in being intentional. Many years of therapy later, I realized that by being in perpetual motion, I didn't need to acknowledge the emotional pain that I was experiencing. I also noticed that my ever-accomplishing and high-achieving persona gained applause from my colleagues and my culture at large. Unfortunately, all that applause and attention was addicting and only drove me to move even faster.

Fast forward ten years (and a brain injury later), I have found a whole new pace and way of life. Instead of life in the fast lane, I now comfortably drive in the carpool lane, letting Spirit do most of the driving. Don't get me wrong, that old tendency to jump in first and think later is still there, but I have learned "when in doubt, wait it out."

I have had to work through the emotional demons that made it difficult to slow down. That's probably been the hardest part, but certainly worth the effort. I have also learned to be patient which I suppose at a deeper level is all about learning to trust; to trust my self, my inner voice, and to trust the Universe. I've had to abandon my need to control everything (which really doesn't work anyway) and surrender to a power and wisdom much greater than my own.

As I ride in the carpool lane thinking of grabbing the wheel, I often ask, "God, why are we taking this route? Wouldn't it be better if we went this way??" If I listen to my heart, I can hear Her lovingly say, "Trust Dear One, trust." And so I do. (Or at least I try to maintain a sense of humor when I don't).

I ask you, where are the opportunities in your life that you can turn over to surrender and trust? What might happen if you did?

Have a Trusting week!

Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week: "Trust more, do less."
-- Carole L. Billingham, MCC

Question: Are you a human "doing" or a human being? What do you think might happen if you were to turn down the dial on "doing" and turn up the dial on "trusting"?

Affirmation: "I willingly slow down this week. In doing so, I see that there is perfect order in things and amazingly, the things that must get done, still get done."
