Waiting Isn't Just Waiting

Thank goodness for my recent Ayurvedic consultation in which I was told to live life at 73%. 73% is a great way to spend a snow day. Typically in the past I would have been sad that my two clients cancelled and might've felt the need to go into town for some of my errands. Not today. I got 9 hours of sleep last night, it's almost 11 and all I've really accomplished is a little snow shoveling and some car sweeping. That Nature is one of our greatest teachers is not news to me. I wonder why it's taken me so long to get that the seasons are great teachers too. Winter teaches the art of patience and that waiting isn't just waiting.

"We cannot always have what we want when we want it. For different reasons, what we want to do, have, be, or accomplish is not available to us now. But there are things we could not do or have today, no matter what, that we can have in the future. Today we could make ourselves crazy trying to accomplish what will come naturally and with ease later."--Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go
