O is for Observe

 O is for Observe.

I feel change on the horizon.  I know-I need to stand back, observe, consider what  I want to do.  I need to be still,  wait and observe my thoughts, before I jump into the next endeavor.  

Sometimes when we take time out and observe progress happens. It might be slow like a waltz before it evolves with energy.   Being open and embracing time offers our hearts and minds to observe with eyes wide open.   It allows the situation to give you new insight, a new idea, or maybe just a necessary time out.   

Maybe when our heart is open, so is our mind~

Maybe it is the moon's energy that is throwing my life off track.  I swear-I have never see so, many changes like I have in the last five days.  I tried to make plans around others, who would affect my time to write and create.   I knew I had this window of time-and it kept changing, until I woke up with  P for panic.  

I finally said it isn't in my hands anymore. I have done all I can and it is in God's hands.  

So, I observed the situation, knowing I could only do what I can and the panic that ebbed and flowed like a rogue wave-dissipated. 

Maybe being open helped me observe things differently?!
Do you observe things before you act?



And if we stopped and realized it was in God's hands more often, we'd enjoy more peace in our lives.

I've learned to accept many changes with peace (not always understanding) that are out of my hands.
This morning, I was trying to sort out all the projects I've become involved in for April. After wondering how I could accomplish everything, I read your post for today and decided to enjoy each hour and let everything fall into place naturally.

Absolutely. Maybe too much, sometimes. Although there's nothing wrong with being a fly on the wall. That's how you learn things, by sitting back and watching others!

Definitely more so now than in my younger years. So much more to consider.
Hope all goes the way you need it to!
Stay well!

Stephanie-Yes, observing can save us some pain!

Gail-This makes me smile! Your post felt like a walk in my neighborhood~ Thank you~

Em-I think we all have to accept this energy-sometimes! Difficult, but necessary~

Alex-Nicely put! I will think of this, the next time I am challenged with an overload of stuff to do. Thank you~

I LOVE those rainbow heart shaped prisms in the window...........I have prisms in my bay window too and when little kids come over, I make the rainbows dance, which never fails to amaze them. Yes, observing, taking a deep breath.....we can only do what we can. But sounds like you need an "I'm taking a time-out" sign. LOL.

I used to think of myself as "The Observer". Sometimes I observe too much and am afraid to be a participant in living. Sometimes just observing is the best way to avoid confrontation and trouble. Yes, I tend to observe a lot.

It is so important to observe and also to trust God.
