Even when she feels
She’s running late,
Behind the gate that blocks her
From where she wants to be,
When she slows
She knows the key exists
Inside her longing heart
To her freedom, her resistance

I’ve circled around this feeling time and time again.
The feeling that something is stopping me, blocking me, holding me back.
So I do more, think more, try different things, until I’m worn out and discouraged.
And then usually, I remember that it isn’t the DOING more that moves me forward.
It’s the BEING more.
More still. More grounded. More present in my body. More connected to my feelings. More aware of my energy and impact.
It’s a truth that I have to come back to time and again.
I may teach it to others but I need the reminder too.
Perhaps you needed it today as well?
