“I’m just trying to help you!” I said. “Why are you being so stubborn?! Can’t you see it’s wide open right next to you, you silly fly!”
Thanks to my stubborn little friend, I was suddenly aware that I had been banging my head against the proverbial wall. And like my single-minded friend, I too hadn’t thought to look at other options.
It was so easy to see, really. I just needed to shift my perspective ever so slightly and there it was, clear as day; a much better path to where I ultimately wanted to go. Why had I been so closed-minded? Why had I so doggedly pursued the one option when I knew it wasn’t working?
Here’s my reminder to myself and my advice to you, dear reader: When something isn’t going your way, take a moment to sit in meditation: Be still. Be open. Allow creativity to flow through you. What’s best for you might not look exactly like you expected it to, so be open to another way. Limitless resources exist, so quiet the chattering mind with all of its “do’s” and “don’ts” and its “can’ts,” “shouldn’ts” and “won’ts."
