Maybe you don’t need to work so hard.
Maybe what you’re striving for isn’t beyond your reach.
Maybe settling in is all that’s needed to take the ride.
Maybe there’s nothing to prove and no one to prove it to.
Maybe the effort that’s weighing heavy on your bones isn’t helping what you assume it is.
Maybe your results aren’t a function of your tireless engagement.
Maybe your pains are.
Maybe what you believe is missing in you is a lie.
Could it be that you don’t need better discipline or stronger will, that you don’t need to anchor down or build yourself up?
Could it be that you don’t need to drive harder, be more or get better?
Maybe the answers lay in relief.
Maybe there’s mobility in relief.
Maybe you’d like some relief?
What if you didn’t have to work so hard?
What if what you’re chasing will only bring you back to where you are?
What could you relax around?
Maybe the work is in the relaxing.
Maybe the results are in the allowing.
Maybe the fulfillment is in trusting what’s already written, what’s already in motion, what’s already happening.
