This morning’s cup is about nothing in particular. I am holding onto my mug with both hands these days, as change is happening in my life so quickly that it is actually making me dizzy.
I feel like my world is on spin cycle. I don’t know if any of you other coffee sippers are experiencing this, but I’ll be glad when the spinning stops. I suppose I could look at the bright side of all this change, at least the excess liquid will be squeezed out of the clothes before they are hung out to dry.
Are any of you,with your plates already full, being asked to do even more with less time available to you to get it done? Spin cycle. Are you taking care of loose ends that have been hanging out there for months, perhaps even years? Spin cycle. Are relationships shifting and changing with dizzying speed? Spin cycle. Do you feel like you haven’t got a clue as to which direction you are heading, or what you will be doing when you get there? Spin cycle.
Seems the best we can do at this moment in time is to just stay as present with things as we can. We get to learn about that next level of trust in the idea that there is a Divine Plan to all of this. Whose idea was this spin cycle thing, that’s what I want to know.
What holds me steady throughout all of this activity is the presence of good, solid, dependable people in my life. Sometimes even that changes. Spin cycle. So what can you do when the solid ground beneath your feet begins to shift? Shift with it. It’s just the spin cycle. It will be over soon.
If it is this intense for the microcosm, imagine the ‘spin cycle’ intensity at the macro level. When we are advised to hang on for the ride, I understand why now. Spin cycle. Don’t spill that coffee on your shirt! Here comes September…
