Monday Mojo – Let it Simmer

Have you noticed that life has its own timescale?

In a world where we can get whatever we want (materially) at the touch of a button, it makes sense that we might find waiting a chore.  Whether it’s to find out if you got that job, or if the date you’ve seen is going to call you back, life can sometimes feel like it’s put us on hold. And other people might expect we live to their timescales too. 

It’s easy to think we have to make big decisions when things are taking their time, or people are pushing us too hard. We might feel compelled to say something. We might have a knee-jerk reaction, and do something we don’t mean. We might just write it all off, altogether. 

This is why, when we’ve done all we can to ensure our own success, sometimes we have to decide to just sit, and wait. 

This week, set the intention to Let It Simmer. If you’re feeling frustrated that someone isn’t working to your timescales, remember that sometimes things turn out better when we wait. If someone is pushing you, create some space that allows you to take your time, and if you can communicate what you need. In the meantime, create a plan of what you really want, and by when. Use any time left waiting, as an opportunity to take care of yourself, in a way that’s meaningful, without feeling like you’re at someone else’s mercy to be happy. Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are. And then let everything else flow and fall into place.
