The Stuff Just Gets Done

If you had asked me on Monday, "Hey Ashleigh, are you ever going to write tipsandtricks again?" I would have said "Heck no." Not because I don't love writing tipsandtricks, because of the gigantic amounts of writing I'm doing in school. A big old project due yesterday had me pretty bent on Sunday and Monday because I was having a hard time finding research materials to support it.

I just kinda let myself be a crabapple about it. On Monday, if someone asked me how I was doing, I told them, "My ass is getting handed to me." And I was still a nice lady to my yoga students.

Forty eight hours later, the project is complete, not only have I turned the thing in, I've presented on it and answered questions my classmates posed regarding my subject, and now I'm writing tipsandtricks. Somehow, the stuff just gets done.

Sometimes resistance is a part of it, it's part of the healing, it's part of the learning, it's part of the path and it's okay, maybe more than okay, to let yourself feel it.

"If you're tired, rest. If you're sad, cry. If you're thirsty, take a long, cold drink of water. If you feel hopeless, feel that. But know it's just for the moment. If you feel confused, feel that. Feel it until clarity, desire, hope and meaning break through. You don't have to trudge on through on willpower, not any longer. Rest until you feel healed, then gently go forward. Let the universe assist you. See how the magical power of the universe carries you along, even when you get tired, even when you get confused." --Melody Beattie, Journey to the Heart
