I woke up at 3AM with this message in mind: Transformation Takes Time.
I got out of bed to write it down and wrote the following:
Shouldn’t I be further along in my career?
I’ve been at this for a long time.
Maybe I’m a slow learner or a slow changer or a slow beginner?
Am I “there” yet?
How much longer will this take?
Well, that depends on how much further you want to go.
Do you feel “cooked”?
Do you feel “done”?
There is no “there” to get to.
There is only now, and you’re looking pretty good from here.
Do you want to be “done”?
Do you feel complete?
What’s the rush?
If you stopped now, would you feel Satisfied?
Would you be Happy?
Would you be “good enough”?
Transformation is a process, a journey, not a destination; and it takes time.
Go back to bed. Go back to sleep. In the morning when you wake up, greet your new day with a renewed sense of self. Let the rest be up to us.
Trust. All is well.
You’re on “target” (as if there was such a thing!)
(The last three lines are Jimmy Buffet’s, but they came to me at that perfect time and place so I included them here.)
