To whose tune are you choosing to dance right now? Do you consciously make your own steps and join yourself in harmony and song with the chaos around you? Or, are you screaming a solo that tries in vain to drown out the rest?
Last night and today, staying at the Versace hotel with my sister, 30 min drive from my home, I have felt more relaxed than I have in years. And part of that is certainly the fact that I haven't had the madness/beauty that is parenting a 5 and 4 yr old weaved into the evening and morning. This is literally maybe the second time I have spent a night away from my kids and having a space on occasion is required.
With this rare moment of freedom I was considering - how can I create more of this or better yet, how can I change my story so that I welcome in deep relaxation alongside the chaos of my mornings, afternoons and evenings as a parent? Obviously also while allowing for and calling in extra time to myself too.
For me - I know that part of that looks like a lot of advance planning and acknowledgement of how those around me work i.e. allowing for the extra 30 min it takes my daughter to put on her socks, shoes and arrange her toys in the car before deigning to put on her seatbelt. As opposed to deciding that it just shouldn't take her that long, waking late and only allowing 5 min for what always takes so long because she is a fiery Aries and Manifesting Generator who beats to her own drum.
In a more general sense - it means choosing to work with the world rather than deciding that it should look different to be working in our favour.
We create our own realties and manifest our own worlds - true. But we also get lessons in patience, humility, sadness, anger and more along the way - otherwise we would be very 2 dimensional people. And sometimes things don't come without silliness, deviation, hilarity, disruption, mess and more because that doesn't serve the ultimate manifestation or big picture.
The pathway that feels at times in opposition to the calm we might crave is actually carving us into exactly who we want and need to be.
