Summer is quickly flying by us all. Before you know it the fall will be here. I tend to get sad this time of the summer when it is past the solstice and the fourth of July. I start thinking the trees will be turning soon. To quote a book, "Winter is Coming."
Like many people who made plans to do so much once the warm season starts I have fallen short of my goals. It seems like I make little to no progress. Although lately I have been taking small steps each day towards accomplishing some of the tasks I set for myself at the beginning of summer.
For several reasons I have been lead to seek out office space to expand the work that I do. For the past few years I have been primarily web based for my energy shifting work. I do love my distance work that I do for people, but traveling and working with people in person made me crave that face to face interaction. I will still be doing distance work, but I believe that meeting clients will make all my sessions more valuable to my clients.
I began looking for office space in June, and it is nearly August. I've had a few leads but still haven't settled on a space. I've often felt discouraged and thought that I have been dragging my feet. Yet each delay has served me and led me further along the path. Like the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel, my guides leave me little breadcrumbs for me to follow. I've met more people and have started to see who would make a good office mate. So in that respect I have moved forward.
From the outside it looks as if nothing is happening. That is often the case with me. I have found my process is a slow one usually, until the last moment where all the little steps finally seem to add up in a way that makes sense. Then everything moves very fast (people even might think I am impulsive), but things had been moving that way for months or years. It is easy to become frustrated with ourselves when our timeline doesn't match up with the universe's or the expectations of others.
So why am I writing about this? I am sure many of you are moving towards your goals, and it may seem that you are getting nowhere. I say be patient with yourself and your world and deal with what is in front of you. Look for signs along the path to keep you moving one step towards your dream. If you think you aren't moving fast enough don't get upset and don't berate yourself; growth happens when you are supported not when you are criticized.
Peace and Blessings,
