Is it just me, or do seasons seem to move more quickly the older you get? I remember that when I was a kid, it seemed like a year was SO LONG... and now, it's always shocking when I realize that I'm supposed to be 'getting ready' for Winter. Life feels like it moves quickly when we get wrapped up into a world of busy-ness and 'doing' - but this Kula really reminds me of simply remembering how to be. Somebody much smarter than me once said, "Nature doesn't hurry, yet everything is accomplished."
As I practice 'beingness' instead of 'doingness', I've made it a daily habit to simply be here... right now, in this moment. Every morning, I have a gratitude practice where I talk about how I want to feel each day - and one of the things that I always say is this: "I am relaxed and at ease and my life flows effortlessly. I am present and I take time to savor each moment as it is."
I hope this Kula brings you a sense of calm and ease like it does for me. You are doing great. Everything will get accomplished. Take a deep breath and allow life to flow with you. you don't need to swim upstream. You're doing your best, and you're going to figure it all out. Sending you love, friend.
