Sometimes “Good Enough” IS Enough: A Musing From the Path
Posted On June 18, 2018
A Happy Monday morning to you, my friend. Did the weekend treat you well? I do hope so.
What is on the agenda for today?
For me, I’m focusing on self-care, on regaining my equilibrium, physically as well as spiritual.
I am grateful that I am not as “out of whack” as I have been in the past.
In the past, vertigo has hit me so hard that it would lay me up in bed for days.
The belief was that it was an “inner ear infection” brought on by bad drainage of allergies. Over the years, though, I’ve come to realize that while that may be the case, it is more likely than not that it is a spiritual balance issue manifesting as a physical balance issue.
As I mentioned the other day, I engaged in a 3-Day seminar not too long ago that – quite literally – rocked my world.
It shook it up, and I’m still working to regain a firm footing.
This week’s card was Volcano from the Earth Magic deck. (Click here to watch the whole video.) And the one thing that really stuck out for me was “reaccessing your life”.
Well… not my entire life, of course, but, certainly, the areas I a choose to expend my energies, which has caused me to redefine my priorities.
For me, my family (physical as well as spiritual) is always my #1 priority, but so is what I’m labeling “my mission”. In other words, what I know – in my heart of hearts – I AM here to do. (“Save humanity”. Even that I am working to define better for the benefit of my rational mind. But that is a post for another time.)
Right now, I’m focusing on my priorities. Because without them, I’m (again) realizing that I will run around like a chicken with its head cut off and accomplish no-thing in the process.
Do you have that challenge as well?
It’s akin to getting blown about by the wind and depending on how strong the wind is that blows us about, it leaves us feeling depleted.
So, how have I established my priorities?
Well, as I said, my family and mission come first. Neither is more important to me than the other. That’s because my family is part of my mission. However, there are what could be considered sub-sections for each.
For instance, there are my families immediate needs… Making sure we are taken care of.
Though Dh is technically retired (from the military), he also works full-time running a motor shop as a partner with my brother-in-law. It’s what (on the surface) brought us to South Carolina. That is what he’s been called to do. It’s his “job” and what gives me the freedom to follow my calling. In exchange (of energy), though, I run the household.
I make certain we have food in the house to eat and the bills are paid. You know, the necessary things.
I also make sure that the house is clean. BUT, I have had to learn recently to let my inner perfectionist go. If I allowed her to remain in control, my energy reserves would be spent in no time at all. She could be (and has been in the past) a slave driver if I allowed her to be.
Sometimes, “good enough” IS enough.
Then, where my “mission” is concerned… That is where I’ve had to pull back on the reins.
I could scatter my energy to the four winds, leaving myself with none left, if I allowed myself to. (I think you can relate, hmmm? Especially if you’re reading this.)
I know – beyond all doubt – that I’ve finally been guided to “what I’m ‘supposed’ to do”, even if I’m not completely aware of the form it will take. BUT, I must focus and make certain that my expenditures of energy benefit as many individuals as possible in the process.
After all, while I do benefit from the work as a by-product, it is most certainly not about me, nor does it have anything to do with my will, only Divine Will.
So, have you found yourself re-establishing your priorities recently? How have you done so? I would love for you to share in the comments below.
Until next time, may you walk in love and light, my friend.
