In the past few days I've said to more than a couple of friends that "I'm as busy as I've ever been," and today was no exception.
This morning, as I sipped my steaming cup-o-joe I looked at my to-do list and my first thought was, "no way in Hades can I do all that in one day." Then I paused in the surprise of my own negativity. I paused and considered one of my life mantras, one that happens to mirror the subtitle of this very blog. I paused and said out loud, "I've negotiated with you before, Linear Time, and I invite you to the table again." In that very moment, time began to bend. It bent around me, hugging me with a surprisingly familiar comfort. I smiled and sprung into actiton.
Here I am several "hours" later with all but one item crossed off my list. I even made a phase I experiment of gluten free cookies, and plan to make phase II this evening. Check in tomorrow, I'll share the recipe and my critique. They look good, don't they? They are quite tastey ... just a little too tender ...
Anyway, I have a couple of friends who often tell me that I bend time and I feel that, on occasion, I do. Today was a reminder that things are not always as they seem, that we need to catch and correct ourselves in our (negative) assumptions, and that ... if we can dream something, we can act on it and ... make it manifest.
