I had an interesting dynamic happening in my world today. I’ve been feeling a bit down the last few weeks – this week having trouble finding the motivation to do anything at all. I realize part of it is my frustration with my situation – finances being tight, being in transition in several close relationships, as well as attempting to reorgainze my business. All of it makes my head spin and rather than facing my pain I turn away from (almost) everything. The one thing I cling to is getting out of the house to connect with others. It seems to be the only thing that I’ll do no matter how I’m feeling.
On the other hand, I have a friend who’s experiencing simlilar life circumstances, but who withdraws from people — adding to the isolation and pain. He’s frustrated with his own progress in his life journey and in me talking to him I was preaching to myself! I realized that I set my own expectations about how and when things should be progressing – and when it turns out to be more difficult thatn I anticipated, I get discouraged. I’m trying to stay mindful of what I want to tell others — since it probably is ringing true in my own world as well.
So with that I’m going to keep my head up and keep moving forward… even if it’s slower than a snail’s pace.
