On insistence...

The meme we have learned is that we try, and try, and try until we get it. We insist on what we want. We go after it, because the alternative is to quit. I propose something different.

When the job you want doesn't seem to materialize, when a dream doesn't seem to become real or when a relationship is over, reach inward to find the strength that has been built-in to carry you through to the next job, opportunity or love. It is in difficult moments that we lose sight of our path and our purpose. Yet it is in difficult times that we need to reach in rather than reaching out.

This is not about giving up, but about giving ourselves the opening to see that each job, each opportunity, each lover gets us closer to where we need to be, what we need to do and who we need to love. If we insist on what is already telling us no, we block ourselves from greater possibilities.

Today is a good day to stop insisting on broken paths. Let go and open your heart to see, hear and feel not for what you insist on, but for what insists on you.
