AGGHHH! those old sayings....
My sister and I share a pet peeve that has been handed down to us through our family line. How far back I cannot be certain. Here it is - "she is so together". I can just see us rolling our eyes right now. This statement signalled such great admiration towards the other that seemed to have her life so organized and fabulous. It left us both feeling depleted and despairing as, certainly, we did not quite match that facade.
I say facade because it is not a reality. No matter how "together" you think you are; how organized and streamlined you have created your seamless life - a moment will come that will bring you to a stopping point.
These stopping points are more significant than you can imagine.
With great honour and deep respect for the challenges of your life, may you hear a new note, and may you experience a shift of awareness when next you are being asked by the Divine to stop for a while.
