The downside is small
The upside huge
Why focus on closed doors?
We are all shifting
The ones that didn’t want to are being lifted into place
God tired of waiting
For the human race
To their full potential
Money was a wall
That we couldn’t see over
God made us see how small
Was our field of focus
We could be so much more
I hope we are becoming
I hope we all make it
I’ll turn back and help you clear it
That wall is falling down anyway
Why it was there at all
Is now the topic of conversation
*who made our lives about money
The not enough
The constant spending
In and out
We will never have enough
Until we stop
Life was never about money
I’m enjoying this period so much and I’m sorry if I tread on toes by saying so – I do not mean to make light of the crisis, however some of us are able to move through it with less fragility then others – for that I know I am blessed – so far
I have not lost anyone
My family is healthy
We will all be fine
Our jobs are shifting
I’ve ceased to worry about money
I’m planting my garden
Cooking yummy things
Running and working out at home
The phone is further from my hands then ever
My dogs follow me like shadows
And everything I touch seems to be growing and curling into my hands
Life is so magical when we stop and watch it
Mind you my hormones maybe supporting me for once and I feel vaguely euphoric from all the time spent outside lately
Yesterday my husband cleaned out his shed properly for the first time in ages
We opened up the pool table
Played pool (me poorly – he demonically – he had a misspent youth)
Ordered takeaway from a local restaurant that has adapted to takeaway only
Watched a bit of telly and went to bed
This morning is full of things to do
Things we had never had time to – always chasing – we have stopped chasing. Time feels longer and stretchier – more abundant.
Tonight is fire pit under the stars and cooking outside, toes in the grass.
This to me – is real life.
I wish this for everyone.
I know there are people who will not adapt, who will sit sadly staring at closed doors – please don’t let that be you.
Please rise – let me know by email (if you like) what “walls” you face if this is you. My brain loves a problem to solve. I will try and help.
