Ever had a week when things weren’t going as seamless as you anticipated? Well that my friends, is the type of week I’ve been experiencing these past few days. I returned from a fabulous vacation a week ago and I’m still supposed to be riding that wave of euphoria. My head is still supposed to be in the clouds, so why was I running into some issues as of late?
People (and some organizations) were testing the patience I’ve been working so hard to build. No lie, there have been times where I’ll look around wondering what in the world is going on. There are foundations I’m trying to establish and goals I’m trying to reach so where is all the resistance coming from? It wasn’t like this a week ago. I’ve had trouble getting in touch with key people at the school I’m supposed to be attending to get important information I need. Deadlines for small legal matters were creeping up without a clear resolution in sight. I was also experiencing miscommunication with people on a personal level as well.
Because of this, I felt like I wasn’t getting anything accomplished. I don’t like stagnation (no one does) and to say I have been frustrated at moments would be an understatement. Sometimes I’ve wanted to scream, cry, punch a pillow, etc. My patience has waned at times, but I never allowed it to falter. I’ve kept it cool, thank goodness. Back in the day I didn’t hesitate to vocalize my displeasure and take my frustrations out on others around me. Times have indeed changed. Now days I know that doing all that “extra” isn’t even necessary or worth raising my blood pressure.
I was tired of being frustrated. Once I felt I did everything I could do on my end yesterday, I let go. Sure enough, once I did that I saw nothing but progress. This morning, I was able to get in touch with the school and set up a meeting, deadlines were extended much to my bank account’s pleasure, and communications in all regards are improving. I guess this was all Spirit’s way of telling me to hand things over to them when needed. Maintain faith, trust and a little patience so things can fall into place how they need to. Sometimes that’s all we can do, and that’s okay. So, when the road gets a little rough, how do you handle the ride? How do you turn the lemons life may throw your way into lemonade?
