Today I want to get some discussion going about what happens when you want life to move faster than it does.
Have you ever felt like projects, plans or people are not satisfying your need for speed?
If so, then today’s post is written just for you.
I know, it can be super frustrating. When you’ve done your part of the work, put in the sweat, tears + prayers and still nothing is happening…
When your deadlines are not met and delays become the norm…
When you take out your goddess cards, consult your astrologer, turn to your guides, and you still can’t figure out why…
Some Of the Questions That Come Up Are:
Did I do something wrong? What am I missing here? What can I do to speed this up?
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I want to pull out my hair, stomp my feet or scream at the top of my lungs (in private, of course).
My Surprise Delay + Website Saga…
Earlier this year, I was fired up to update my website. It was time to integrate all my work and create something that could serve the community and help women live a more fulfilling life.
I had a plan.
I had guidance from my mentors.
I knew what I wanted to create (with pages + pages of notes and drawings).
And I had a deadline.
In my mind, it would be simple, fast and be ready to launch this summer. (Key word: simple.)
Er, Not exactly.
After 2 photo shoots, multiple unexpected delays, copywriters bailing out, and just life getting in the way… it’s still coming.
At First It Stressed Me
There were so many feelings coming up. Anger. Defeat. Insecurity. Frustration.
I felt that since I had created this deadline, I had to meet it–and it wasn’t happening.
Then I Realized My First Blessing: I Have the Power in This Situation
I had to accept the situation and be open to seeing that a quick + dirty site would have been out of integrity with the work I do. That’s not how I work, so honestly, I was settling.
And guess what? I’m the one with the power to shift those deadlines and say yes to choosing a knock-out website over slapping up something that’s just okay.
As I let go of trying to control the timing, I am able to allow the good that is unfolding.
Delays are a gift from the universe. Bless them! tweet this…
Because I made this choice, I’m excited about the results & can’t wait to share. (Coming soon!) I’m still little nervous and battling my inner perfectionist.
Best Outcomes (Blessings):
I get to better serve you.
I get to better serve those who have yet to meet me.
I get to give my gifts in a more effective way and enjoy the creative process.
I get to trust in a friendly universe.
I get to communicate better and be even more grateful.
I get to learn important lessons so I can live a more fulfilling life.
Cutting corners never ever works.
“Good enough” is a form of settling.
Everything takes longer than expected. (Some move faster too!)
There are always more steps than I think there are.
I have to trust in my own process + the people assisting me.
Surrounding myself with people who have the same values is important.
Moving slower gives time to birth an even better creation.
The universe works in divine time, not what-I-want-to-happen time.
Application + Practice:
Where can you find the lessons + best outcomes in your own delays?
Tell me in the comments below the #1 delay you’re dealing with and what the Best Outcomes (Blessings) + Lessons Learned are. This is where transformation happens.
If you’re not 100% sure of the lessons, write some possibilities below so I can personally support you in finding what they are.
