being present

All to often we want to rush things along

Push them through as quickly as we can

Never really giving it the thought or the moment that it needs

To grow

To evolve

To just be

We have learned to want things now

And not let them naturally progress

Stew into what they can become

We have become so impatient with the process

Only craving results

By doing this we miss the lessons along the way

We miss learning how things come together

How they bend and form into a new shapes

We also miss our chance to just be

In that uncomfortable place

Allowing the uncertainty of life to propel us

You cannot force things to happen

Or create the perfect situation for something to grow and bloom

All you can do

Is just be, in the moment

Open to the idea that anything is possible

If you give it space and room to grow and breathe

When you try to hold on tightly

When you try to force the situation

Then you have lost

You have to just be

Exactly where you are

Learning from the uncomfortable feelings

Leaning into the uncertainty

And trusting that it will unfold just as it is meant to

You have to just be present in the world
