Isn’t it funny how sometimes what we think will be hard turns out to be just so easy? Isn’t it also funny how sometimes we can loose sight of why things are so easy? Why is that? More often than not losing sight of why things are just so easy is tied to some belief in our thinking that we are supposed to work hard for what we get. It shouldn’t be too easy, right? If it is too easy than we have not earned it. You know, all that shoulder to the grindstone crap many of us grew up with.
Well here is the thing. It really can always be just so easy. Everyone reading this has experienced aspects and times in their lives being just so easy. It might be when work just flew by or maybe you were sharing time in conversation with someone you love. Take a look at your life, you’ll see lots of examples.
Just so easy happens any time you allow something to come through you rather than doing it. It really is that simple. Yes, you do still need to figure out what to allow. Fortunately we come pre loaded with an app designed specifically to guide us towards what to allow. And, that is another blog post.
I want to share with you how it all went briefly sideways for me when my thinking took me for a ride and I forgot what it being just so easy means. I recently completed a professional certification/accreditation process that stretched back about 18 months. IT WAS SO EASY! I mean all of it. In fact, it was so easy that I forgot what just so easy means or maybe more specifically what just so easy points to. For a few uncomfortable but ultimately hilarious moments my thinking looked like this. It was so easy because it was too easy and because it was too easy it doesn’t mean anything and if it doesn’t mean anything I had not accomplished anything. It was like reverse imposter syndrome What a load of crap, right? Bet you have never fallen for that, right?
Reality check. Why was it really just so easy? Well, the not so well kept secret is that everything can be just so easy when you are allowing what feels good rather than doing things in an effort to feel good. Your only job is to allow it to be so.
