Are You Afraid of Slowing Down?

For me, slowing down is terrifying.

Do you know what I mean?

Sometimes I wonder if I have come to a complete stop.

What if I never get going again?

Do you ever feel this way?

For many years I have measured my worth in terms of effort and output.

The past few years have been a journey of letting go of everything I believed was in my control.

Except letting go feels a lot like giving up.

Letting go feels like quitting.

Fear tells me I have lost momentum.

Fear tells me it will never return.

Rationalizations arise to push back the Fear.

But I know rationalization is another brush Fear uses to paint on the canvas of my mind.

I choose acceptance instead.

Wherever I am is exactly where I am supposed to be.

Everything will not be OK someday.

Everything is perfect as it is now in this moment.

You are perfect as you are in this moment.
