You’re standing in front of a huge vineyard.
It’s just after winter and as you take in the landscape, it seems quiet. The vines look husky, tranquil and quite frankly, dead.
From the outside, it seems as if nothing is going on.
But on the contrary, there’s a lot going on – underneath the surface.
It’s the time of year when the attention and focus goes into the roots.
Although invisible to the naked eye, the roots are busy – grabbing nutrients from the soil (the way we would grab a midnight snack) to tie the vine over until it’s time to ‘wake up’.
It’s a a beautiful natural cycle that all plants surrender to, and I think it could teach us something.
I believe that humans have a similar natural cycle.
A season in our lives when we can feel like there’s a lot going on underneath the surface, but not much to show for it.
A time when we can feel as though something is emerging – an idea, a project, a business concept – but it’s too early to wrap our words, let alone our thoughts around it.
Moments where parts of us want to get going, but other parts of just want to ‘be’ in the process (preferabbly on the sofa with a blanket and cup of tea).
So what if we just surrender to these moments? Take the path of least resistance. Follow the natural cycle of creation. Go with the flow.Let go of the judgment of the in-between stages and trust that everything has it's timing. Click To Tweet
Today I invite you to surrender to this space with me and trust…
Trust that everything has it’s timing.
Trust that you’re on track.
Trust the process and be at peace with your pace.
And finally, trust that something is happening, your roots are being nourished and all you have to do is nurture them with warmth, love and a little bit of patience – because you WILL blossom.
So, what do you think? Do you agree that even though it may appear that nothing is going on, something really is? Has this ever happened to you? What helps you stay calm and patient?
