Loving Monday: Go With It

loving_mondayI woke up before my alarm went off this morning. Must have been one of those sleep cycle things. I was wide awake and ready to go.

I decided to go with it. (As much as part of me was grieving that lost half an hour.) I knew that to resist would make pushing myself out of bed nearly impossible later.

I must say that I’m a bit pleased with myself. I’m enjoying the refreshed feeling that cooperating with my sleep cycle affords. Instead of battling with myself to get going, “we” are starting out on the same team and actually making some progress.

I‘m wondering whether this experience applies to other venues. When the unexpected happens can I recognize whether any potential opportunity exists? If I identify potential for good, can I “go with it?”

Or do instinctive resistances kick in? Do old battles resurface, and, in the name of avoiding a repeat of a previous danger, I, in fact, avoid the receiving the benefit of the current opportunity?

So what if I don’t normally wake up this early. So what if I go about my day, my work, my conversations differently today or tomorrow or forever more.

The key is whether I’m alert enough to sense the potential for something good to emerge. The key is whether I am free and flexible enough inside to “go with it.”

What came up for you this morning that might be worth going with?

    Thanks for highlighting what a valuable opportunity quiet reflection presents!
    It may seem like we’re not being productive when we’re still, but quite the opposite is the case.
    We actually create a space for thinking critically, examining what’s going on inside us, and quieting down enough for God to get a word or two in.

    Hope you are well.
