Acceptance Lessons, with Action

             As previously discussed (repeatedly), we all know that I don’t have an excellent relationship with Time.  We have different ideas of success, Time and I.

           We have different goals.  I’ve come to accept this.  Me and Time, not always on the same page.

             What I’m learning, too (because EVERYTHING is a fucking lesson!), is that this challenge, this agree-to-disagree situation with Time, it’s fine.  For right now, we, Time and I, we can continue to not necessarily see eye-to-eye.  Nothing tragic will happen.

             And this is where our message is taking us, through time, and in to:

Patience.

             Because truthfully?  Shit just takes as long as it takes.  If we miss one chance?  Another will roll around.

             It’s never “too late” – nothing is a mistake.  Every experience and situation can teach us something.  Every relationship and interaction is beneficial.

             In the end (spoiler alert, Universal Truth: there is no end), Time moves forward, as do we.

             So, if it feels like we need to go faster/slower, do something sooner/something is taking too damn long, or however our humanity is manifesting timely dissatisfaction, all we have to remember is that, Time has a clock.  But we, we have a soul.

             Once we accept (with patience and tolerance and a wee bit of grace) that timing is NOT everything, our own inner ticking will become quieter and the true songs of lovingkindness and joy will become easier to hear.

             At first glance, this draw I was directed to, might not seem like the most perfect validation.  The opposite perhaps.  But as we read closely, it will become obvious that it certainly is ideal.  Even timely!

“Taking Action  ~

‘I enthusiastically embrace life’s boundless possibilities.’

Card meaning:

Don’t hesitate!  Whatever you’ve been putting off, now is the time to act.

Stand tall, raise your fists to the sky, and leap into action.  Break out the champagne, for victory is in reach.

The Universe wants you to know:

Action creates momentum.  Whatever you have been wishing and waiting for, this is the right time to move forward without looking back.

Quicken your spirit by taking action now.  Even if you have to face your fears in order to do so, look them in the eye with a calm and clear gaze and forge ahead.

The action you take now will reap immense rewards in the future.

Questions to ask yourself:

In what area of my life should I take action now?  What blocks me from action, and how can I overcome this?  What is the most direct action that will yield the greatest result?

Affirmation:

I enthusiastically embrace life’s boundless possibilities.”

  1. Time and I don’t get along either. You could say there have been some rather stiff arguments along the way. I think patience and grace are a ways off yet. Right now I’m just trying to ‘go with the flow’.

    Back to working on the self-care and happiness, making it a priority to do something for me everyday. The past few months have been a bust. I lost my brother last October and I was surprised at how hard it hit me given that we were not close at all.

    Love your Outhouse calendar. It makes me smile. My mother’s grandparents ran a lake resort when she was young and there were no indoor toilets. The tales she tells of night time trips to the potty, however, would curl your hair! 🙂

    • For decades I’ve been saying that I want to replace our bathroom with an out-house. Still wish we could. I bet those resort stories are fabulous!

      I’m sorry about the loss of your brother, and that you had to go through this. I can’t say that I understand your grief, we all deal with these situations in our own way, but I can say that I do know how you feel in that I’m still not over the death of my sister. This fall it will be ten years. Time is strange, and losing an adult sibling is even stranger.

  2. Interesting things/relationships with time. My mom hated time; she and numbers in general and time in particular. With that came the additional bristling at anything that forced her to do something she didn’t want to do or “should” do. As part of this, I contributed to family lore with asking, once, “A real minute or a mother minute?”

    My lovely wife believes that “on time” is just that: arriving at the exact time of the event. In my world, on time means to arrive early enough to secure parking, get into the venue, and locate seating or other arrangements, depending on the event. By at least 15 minutes. This has caused some modifications to our traveling, and we’ve each made concessions. That said, I have come to realize that putting external constraints on time just is anxiety provoking, and am learning to just let some things go.

    • Oh the adjustments we make! I like that when the four of us get together (which we need to do again SOON) we never know who will be the early couple and who will be the late ones.

      The more I hear about you mom, the more I know with all my heart that I would have adored spending time with her. So probably, at some other point, we totally did!
