Each time I woke last night I settled my dog back in and then lay in bed breathing deep and consciously completing the dream how I wanted it to end. There was a need for completion. Yet that completion, combined with the many times of waking have me feeling completely exhausted this morning.
"Finish what you start." It is a phrase I have heard often and has been a useful reminder when I find myself procrastinating. And it does feel good to complete a project.
But isn't it interesting how we choose which projects to finish? I find it humorous that I felt the need to complete these dreams and yet I have several house projects in the works that have been awaiting completion for months. Perhaps this awareness is just what I needed to spur their completion too.
I'm grateful to have completed my dreams. I'm grateful for conscious awareness of inconsistencies. I'm grateful for the reminder of how good completion feels and for the encouragement to finish the projects I have started. I'm grateful to accept responsibility for my choices. And I'm grateful for another night with my dog, even if the nights are long and less restful.
What is waiting completion in your life? What seems to take priority in your life and get completed and what gets pushed aside?
May today help us complete some of the projects that have been waiting. May we recognize inconsistencies between our desires and our actions and find ways to bridge the gap. Have a beautiful day!
