Rolling with the punches
I got news recently that pulls the pin on some beautifully lined up plans I had for the next 6-9 months. Plans that came together very effortlessly and seemingly have come undone just as effortlessly.
My normal reaction is one of frustration, irritation, anxiety and anger when they are plans that I have invested in and committed to. If, as in this case, there is a financial investment my reaction is amplified. A familiar mix of emotions that herald days of angst, drama, wresting until I get over myself and grudgingly adjust.
This time was different. Surprisingly, extraordinarily different. I put it down to a conversation I had with a peer about using the 'What If' premise. One of those that we talked about was 'What if everything is working out in my favour with love, truth and wisdom always'. It was the first thing that came to mind when I got my news.
Looking from this perspective piqued my curiosity:
What is there to learn here?
What love is there to experience?
What truth is waiting to be illuminated?
What growth is here for me?
I can sense the pause of inner adjustment, the mechanism of recalibration being initiated and the spaciousness of reassessment opening up. Without resistance there is an ease, a slickness of this volte face and the pleasure of having the suppleness and flexibility to roll with the punches. Just like that.
