I recently read in a post by Martina McGowan (http://martinamcgowan.visibli.com/share/LFSPsq) through SoulSeeds
this quote from Anne Lamott (who by the way is my favourite writer on spirituality) which I have decided will be my mantra,
“Every single day I try to figure out
something I no longer agree to do.”
Imagine that. Really. What if I … what if we … did what was necessary … and then stopped?
So, I am not going to do more than expected for at least 8 hours every day.
And by “more than expected” I mean what is absolutely necessary.
As an instance … when the garden needs watering,
I will water it … just enough.
I will not weed out every single thing that I didn’t plant. It might, after all, be a gift.
I will not decide to transplant a dozen perennials.
I will not decide to dig a new area out.
I will do what is expected (supposedly by my plants), I will water them … just enough.
I won’t soak them unless they are parched.
And I certainly won’t even water them if there are rain clouds in the sky.
I will water them … just enough.
And I will enjoy that I am just enough while I am at it.
And while I’m at it…I’m giving you permission to do the same…because you are enough.
You ARE enough.
You are ENOUGH.
YOU are enough.
