The middle

Standard

 

Turtle eating strawberryNibble at the edges of a sweet dream that is bigger than you. Bite off more than you can chew from time to time to remind yourself to keep stretching your ambition beyond limitations. Break it down until bite size chunks of possibility emerge. Large visions are rarely swallowed whole; slow and steady, one step at a time, wins the race. By soulseeds

The last time we spoke my life was sitting on the edge of unknown change, and I am speaking to you today from the middle.

For the last months there has been change going on within and without, and as often happens in such times, my natural inclination is to withdraw, to observe, to conserve, to quietly contemplate, and to imagine the beginnings of new possibilities.

One of the great inspirations for me in these times has been the ever brilliant musings of Ian and Meg Lawton in soulseeds. They speak of life and love and have continued to seed my own morphing perspectives.

Today I was again reminded to keep nibbling away … slowly, slowly until one day I’ll be on the other side, wondering why I ever questioned that I could do it.

I wanted to share this with you, to remind you to keep daring to confront and nibble away at your own dreams, knowing that like the little turtle (tortoise??) and the strawberry, it IS possible, and it HAS to happen if it rests constantly in your imagining. We are all pregnant with possibilities awaiting birth, and it is inevitable that the time will come when they must come forth.

Keep daring, keep imagining … you and I both … and we will meet on the other side soon to share our stories of transformational change.
