While other people are demanded to speed up their lives, I am summoned to slow down mine.
I had to put my career on hold in the meantime to focus on other (more important) matters. It took a while before I learned to accept things as they are; the thought of letting go of the things that I cannot control gave me much discomfort. Pushing myself to the limit, however, would only overwhelm me and put me on the brink of insanity. Something just has got to give.
I thought that surrender was for the faint of heart. But I was wrong. I realized that it takes a lot of courage and strength to just let things be and to allow the future to unfold all by itself. Little by little I am discovering that it is also the path to freedom.
I am able to breathe more lately. I wonder where this is leading me to.
