Green Lights

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Sometimes we don’t immediately recognize the green lights we get in life.

Mostly because we aren’t ready to move forward.

The green light might be flashing in front of us for days months or even years

and it’s only because of the right timing and circumstances that we see

what has been there for quite some time.

That’s the beauty of a green light–it patiently gives us the go ahead

ready when we are.

A Little Not Ready

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow.When there’s that moment of  ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.

I have so much trouble starting a new task.

I fear it!!

Afraid I’ll mess it up but more afraid that it may involve more than I anticipated.

Tasks that bother me the most are ones that are new to me which have been many as of late.

I’ve been trying to be easy on myself by saying things like–

stay steady

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Take it one step at a time

Yesterday was one of those days. I knew I had to get a pile of stuff done that was on my desk. I also knew I had to keep the perspective to do one thing at a time.

So here’s how it went:

Take a deep breath

Okay, do the first thing. Okay got it.

Do number two–wasn’t so hard, check that one off.

Okay now STOP! Take a break, come back to it.

As the pile became thinner I could breathe a sigh of relief and see that I’d made enough progress to call it a night so I did.

It’s never easy to feel behind–at least for me that is something I don’t do well with. But the thing is, doing something, even if it’s not conquering everything all at once is very comforting. It’s a feeling I can live with knowing that what didn’t get done will get done–one step at a time.

Patience & Timing

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

Patience and timing are the best of friends. Patience always waits until timing is ready.

Experience makes for Readiness

In a new work situation it can be quite frustrating to be unsure of or have no idea how to answer a particular question or find a solution in order to meet the needs of others. The positive side of not having the answers is knowing that the situation question or problem will come up again and when it does you’ll either know the answer or know where to get the information.
