In my spiritual practice, when resistance is present, surrender and reconnect with source.
- I drafted and created pants that were too big and required a lot of fitting. (one weekend)
- I was notified that as an adult, my submissions or link up for the sew along was invalid. Children only. Ok. Understood.
- Due to time, I shifted gears to create a dress from the Imke shirt. (several evenings)
- I cut and sewed the dress only to rip out bad looking seams due to fabric slippage or machine issues, plus spent all last night ruffling the hems only to discover it may be too heavy for the single knit. (one weekend)
I do believe, Universe, you are trying to get my attention and remind me to take care of myself and surrender when things aren't working.
As I allow myself to fully surrender and let go of the outcome or whether I will continue with Let's Farbenmix, I feel an ease in my chest and clarity that my Eva Dress (due TONIGHT!) submission and gift making is more important. Why didn't I cut and run sooner? Because I wouldn't believe that sewing the dress with embellishments would take as long as it has. Nah, it's easy. I can do it. I just kept driving to the finish line to meet my commitments. But, sometimes it is important to pull back, re-evaluate priorities and ALL commitments.
Ok Universe. I surrender. Show me the way, the truth, and the light. (ooo it's scary to let go!)
