Easy Does It

When something isn’t working the way I think it should, I can think about the slogan, “Easy does it”. Instead of re-doubling my effort, I can slow down and reassess the situation. The answer I seek may be staring me in the face, but sometimes I have to let go of what I’m doing before I can see it.
I was trying to zip a removable lining back into my coat, but it wasn’t working. I pushed as hard as I could, trying to force it to slide, but it wouldn’t budge. Finally I saw that I had been trying to fit the lining zipper into the coat’s front zipper. No wonder I couldn’t make it work!
How many times in my life have I done the same thing: forced A solution? I’ve tried to zip myself to people and situations that didn’t fit me, becoming frustrating and disheartening in the process. But I’ve learned that easy does it. I can take that time to see if I match what I think I want before I jump in and start zipping. My life is more serene because I’m not pushing to make myself fit somewhere I don’t belong.
Today’s reminder… if my plans hit a snag today, I will step back for a moment and take a come look at the situation before moving ahead.
Easy does it… Think about it when you’re in a hurry to do something and everything seems to go wrong… you’ll be surprised how much this little one idea I can do for you.
