Nicely Unfinished

Do you ever feel like you have a lot of unfinished business? Are there "to do" lists that haven't quite been "done"? Have you ever quietly beaten yourself up for just not getting to everything? I'm just wondering because I've been there and I don't think I'm alone.

Sometimes I'll go on a tear and write down at least twenty things that I think have to be done. I might make a great start and take care of quite a few of the items, however I usually start adding even more tasks and I rarely get to the end. The interesting part about this is that my world does not come to an end and I'm beginning to think it might be because neither does my list!

If you've known me for awhile or read some of my blogettes, you probably know that I've been a fan of Abraham-Hicks for many years. Abraham is a group of "entities" that are "interpreted" or channeled by Esther Hicks. Their wisdom resonates with me and I often find answers to my questions within their teachings.

One of the points they make is:

All is well and you will never get it done. Life is supposed to be fun. No one is taking score of any kind, and if you will stop taking score so much, you will feel a whole lot better. This incomplete place that you stand is the best place that you could be. The whole point of the goal or the desire is that the desire summons Life Force through you. That's why we say you will never get it done. You're wanting the goal for the sake of the Energy that will flow through you, not for the sake of the manifestation.

It makes sense. I can get really excited creating a list. Sometimes it makes me feel like I'm accomplishing great things. Checking off the first few items feels good and then, I usually find myself adding other things to take care of. I think I want to finish all my dangling projects, but maybe I really want to know that there's something else coming up, something else around the corner calling to me.

Have you ever seen a vibrant person retire from a job they've had for many years? At first it seems great being able to sleep in if they like, come and go as they please, do whatever they like, but unless they find new direction in their lives, they lose their zest, their vim and vigor.

The next time I find myself being critical of my "unfinished business" my plan is to think of it as an invitation to life. Some of the things I've left undone might look messy at first glance, but I'm going to start viewing them as a delightful beckoning to whatever is next. Even if I don't cross some things off it won't be because I've failed in some way. It will be because something else came along to get my attention. It's funny how life works out that way. This is what I wish for you.

Sparkles and Love,
