of making friends with my excellent nemesis, linear time!
One of the most stress-inducing things in my life has been the constant tug-of-war with linear time. I’ve been struggling with How to Do Everything… Be Everything… Be Everywhere… Support Everyone… All the Time ad infinitum.
Mastering this aspect of my being has to be one of my most difficult challenges. It must be for others as well, because there is no shortage of “time-management” courses and tools being offered in the marketplace. But seriously, with the constant struggle of churning the daily to do list, it is bewildering and overwhelming to add this other element to my learning curve!
I know, I know, if I stop struggling and breathe into the present moment and look for a way to just work smarter, not harder, everything will magically fall into place. But, here’s the mocking of linear time, feeding me a little guilt snack and telling me to just keep keeping on, stubbornly, and doggedly Doing, Doing, Doing, then time runs out. At the end of the day, there is still more places to be, more people to see, more work to be done, than time to do it.
I get a little tired just thinking about it!
Today, I renew my effort to make friends with my excellent nemesis linear time ♥
I have decided to kindly and gently express my desire to experience the “doing diet” ~ maybe you’re already familiar with it, but it actually just manifested in my thoughts as I write this post!
Right here, right now, I am. Linear time is my friend, I will gratefully give and take as needed to nourish and sustain my life experience of being well and joyful. Please be patient with me as I awkwardly make this journey.
