I can Now versus I can’t Yet …
Sunday morning (serendipitous timing as usual), this statement showed up in my Facebook post.
There will never be a perfect time. Simply start where you are.
The time is now feels like the unwritten end to that statement, and with time being such a precious commodity it feels very truthful – and useful. It strips away all “escuses” (aka procrastination) our minds can conjure up. As that other great truth-statement says, “if you really want to do something you will find a way. If you don’t you, will find many escuses”. It also feels very releasing in my body – like a deep exhale of relief.
This month we have held two workshops – both introducing very new and “foreign” practices. Sacred Chanting and Acroyoga. Both easy to “dismiss” with “I can’t chant /sing – its really not my thing – acrobatics with yoga – totally out of my ability range” …and so forth.
I did both these workshops. I was interested in both of them, but had I a choice (being the host it was part of my responsibility to be there) there is a good chance that I could have found escuses why the “timing” was not right for me to do them.( I can be a very masterful procrastinator). And I was very grateful and glad that I couldn’t. They were both amazing experiences and widened my landscape of physical sensation and experience, and empowered my mind and emotions with new personal insights plus the fact that I COULD DO both of these “foreign concepts” (in the context of my experience). Had I waited for the alignment of time and perfection – I would have missed out big time.
So now … where do you want to start? What have you been “putting off” for various “reasons”? … what do you want to do? Simply start where you … and you will find your way. Remember you are your biggest encourager! And we are always here for you too.
