With only a week & a half before the new year,
I’ve given up on being productive.

I’ve fought an uphill battle all month.

It’s time to do
What I should have before done –

Step back.
Trust things to naturally unfold.

This is a lesson I struggle to learn.

Things happen on their own time –
Not mine.

The more I force or resist,
The less progress I make.

Each being signs I should
Follow life’s chosen pace.

This is where my lingering impatience
Most deeply rests

In feeling that progress should come
At a much faster pace.

What would happen if I allowed things to be?

If I accepted the present
Without concern for the future
Thought of the past?

What might flower into existence
If only I sat back
And learned to more fully relax?
