we’re wired to grow and evolve,
and yet we believe it’s something
we have to make happen. that we have to fight
instead, can we clear the space
necessary for the changes to
take place on their own?
yes, some work from us is necessary and helpful,
but what’s even better is
allowing the work to work itself out on
this is why i believe
doing nothing is the first step to doing anything.
we need to land in our lives
we need to know where we’re at so
we can make informed decisions
about where we’d like to go next
so we’re not left at the mercy of the wind
to carry us on it invisible
strings and tendrils.
to do nothing is to come home.
to be with what is instead
of run from what we wish wasn’t.
everything in our world
tells us to do differently.
to go for it,
to work hard at becoming the
person we want to be.
to do nothing, though,
can mean we open to the reality
of who we already are.
we can see we’re enough,
and okay, without needing to change
because changing anything from a place
of fear only reinforces our lack.
do nothing and become everything.
or simply be okay.
