I am at a crossroads. The path less traveled is calling to me. As I find myself trying to step forward I am realizing that rather than just walking it; I am trying to pave it. I am trying to get every paver stone leveled and lined up perfectly.
This is my nature. Perhaps it comes from my parents but I have a feeling it is a long line of ancestry. Measure twice, cut once.
I appreciate a job well done. I appreciate doing my best. But what about when these goals stand in the way of moving forward? Maybe it is time to lay down my pavers and get reacquainted with the dirt.
I'm grateful to feel the earth beneath bare feet. I'm grateful to lay down the weight of the pavers. I'm grateful to know I can find a balance between my best and progress. I'm grateful to take some time today to just sit quietly. I'm grateful for the wonderful sounding boards I have in my life. I'm grateful for honesty.
Where do you find your balance between doing your best and getting the job done quickly? What are you grateful for today?
May we each walk the path that suits us. May we do our best and without perfection and hesitation to weigh us down. Have a beautiful day!
