The human condition wants things to be better right now.
And the stinker thing is, there are some things that just can’t be rushed.
When I broke my arm at 6 years old (3 days into summer vacation by the way), I wanted it to be better that day. I couldn’t go swimming and it restricted how and what I played. No matter how much I wished, I couldn’t make my arm heal faster. It healed on its own time and in its own way.
Once my clients come to a point of being able to finally recognize what the issues are, they move into the ‘Ok, so how do I fix this right NOW’ phase. They want the problem to be gone and, if it isn’t gone, then they may feel like they’re not doing the process right.
I have to remind them that they are not healthy YET.
They are in process.
They will arrive, but not just YET. They will be different in time.
Yet gives us permission to make mistakes along the way, to continue to learn, to grow, to change.
I'd love to hear from you, so leave a comment or connect on any of the various social media platforms.
