Resistance. A little word that screams loudly at me a lot at the moment.
I will write. Resistance.
I will create. Resistance.
I will take a risk. Resistance.
I will arrange photography for my site. Resistance.
I will get my digestion in order. Resistance.
I will respond to that email. Resistance.
If you look at the above you would think I haven’t been doing much at all, yet things are strangely coming together when they have too. How?(Can I be honest and say I am not quite sure?) I guess I am selective with pushing through that resistance, paying attention to it, saying hello and then letting it go. Sometimes…
To fly we have to have resistance
– Maya Lin
If I think back to school days, my creative genius was always thriving under pressure; I was such a last minute Larry, always finishing assignments the night before and then generally rocking it. (If it was English, not Maths, Maths and I were never friends and there was certainly no rocking it, ever.)
It was like if the resistance wasn’t there I couldn’t move forward. Which when I think about it, makes sense. We often resist what we most need, to do, complete or bring into our lives. It becomes a barometer for what is important, for knowing when you are on the precipice of something great, of the breakthrough.
So how am I going with my above list? I am getting there…
Where do you find yourself resisting at the moment? I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
Much love, em x
