This month mandala is a three dimensional look about it, waiting patiently for a gust of wind to start it moving again. Sometimes we feel like that. We’ve done all that we think we can and we wait patiently (or impatiently) for something to happen, for a gust of wind to move our sails.
I’m reminded of a line from the movie “Working Girl” where Sigourney Weaver’s character encourages us by telling “You don’t get anything from this world by waiting for it to come to you” and to adopt the affirmation “I make it happen.” So why wait for something or someone to make things happen for us?
I’m going to travel once I retire
I’m going to start painting once I have some extra space
“Windmill” encourages us to re-think this strategy because all these things are just fear disguised as convenient excuses.
• If you really want to act, then act even if it’s in your living room.
• If you truly want to travel, then start by traveling to places near you that you have yet to visit.
“Windmill” tells us that if we truly, in our heart of hearts, want to “do this“, then do it! There is always some action we can take, regardless of how small, to move it forward. And it could be that all we need do is change the direction of our sails (a different perspective) to create the momentum.
We can start by asking ourselves each morning:
What one thing can I do today to put the the wind in my sails
