Getting Out Of The Way

There’s a lot of focus in our society of getting things done, planning ahead, achieving goals. I often wonder if this is because there’s so many September babies and therefore Virgoans (although I guess some could be in Libra is they were Christmas/New Year related).

So not doing these things feels kinda counter-intuitive. The bills can pile up, the money can run out…and we flail around desperately thinking ‘how am I going to make money? How am I going to support myself?’

So we DO something. Anything. And it sticks a plaster over and we feel a little more shit about ourselves afterwards anyway.

The alternative of course, is getting out the way. Taking a step back. Doing what we intuitively feel called to, not what we think we should be doing.

That often brings up guilt in women.

I woke at 2.30 this morning with this kinda urge. To create. Well, it can’t be to create new life because I’m 4 months pregnant with an 8-month old…so I reckon I’m pretty maxed out in that respect.

But it’s like something is bubbling to get out and I don’t know fully what it is yet.

I read this article and a lot of things suddenly made sense… I’ve always had it in my head to be a nurturing mother, and some parts of me enjoy that, but I need to go do creative stuff to0.

So, maybe it’s time to get out of the way.
