This is a time–purchasing and remodeling a home–that would seem to require a lot of effort. Certainly there are lists to write and check off, there are many details to keep track of, and apparent decisions to be made. Not to mention eventually packing…
But I’ve been discovering if I remain here, right now, there is only one task to attend at a time. The mind wants to whine about the hundreds of tasks to follow, but that’s its job; I don’t have to listen. All that is required is that I attend now. And now.
I’m perfectly capable of falling into effort and overwhelm. But lately–as soon as I notice the strain–I remember that effort and overwhelm are not required. They are layered over the simplicity of the moment. One clean breath, and I’m back here.
