This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 4/7/2016:
Today began with several lessons in patience.
I completely forgot until yesterday that I had pre-scheduled a hair appointment this morning, smack dab in the middle of crunch-time before #BetterBrandingCourse opens back up. I considered cancelling since there are still so many things to be done, but ultimately I decided to keep the appointment as a challenge to myself to SLOW DOWN and not let myself succumb to the pre-launch craziness, as I’ve done in the past.
I left the house behind schedule so I found myself feeling the need to rush, only to immediately find myself in almost stand-still traffic. I felt myself urging to rush so I could make my appointment on time, only to find myself physically blocked by cars creeping forward. I had to laugh at how perfectly the circumstances mirrored my sense of urgency with the work I had yet to do. I found myself wishing I could fast forward time so I could just be back home, knocking out my to-dos. But instead I took a deep breath and reminded myself: “Patience, Caroline. This is a lesson in patience.” When I felt myself wanting to speed through traffic.— Patience.
When all I wanted to do was run out of the salon with a wet head of hair to rush home. - Patience.
When I finally returned home and found myself scribbling down my to-do’s for the day in a frenzy. - Patience.
What I realized is that, much like yesterday’s piece on focus, patience is a PRACTICE; it’s a discipline. It requires constant attention and recalibration, and in moment’s when we find ourselves rushing ahead or wishing we could manipulate time, it’s a reminder to slow down, stay present and find joy in where we are.
The day may have challenged my own patience but I’m grateful for the reminder. And now, I’m ready to tackle this launch with patience AND with fabulous hair. 😜😉💇
