Last Friday, I took a walk in the park and came across a part of the lake that was mostly frozen. There was a tree in the distance and it was an ideal photo opportunity and of course I took a picture. I then noticed that there was a little part of the lake that wasn’t frozen and I could tiny ripples moving along. It is within that moment that it came to me that the entire lake was’t frozen. Life is still happening underneath. Movement is still present although it appears to be still.
This was a great reminder to myself. I went to the park to walk, to reconnect and to honestly, “get out of my head”. I was overthinking quite a bit. That moment by the lake allowed me to see that despite not being able to “see” how everything is coming together, trust that it is. Some times we are so stuck on figuring it out that we don’t realise that the opportunity came along and we missed the flow. Keep on working — be involved in the movement, while honoring the stillness. Balance.
