Oriental Beauty Tea, unfurling in its own sweet time
I'm struggling with control right now. Well, that I don't have it. And this is messing up my JOY big time. Well, I'm allowing it to. Uugh. I'm 15 work days before sabbatical and it feels like things in the office are falling apart, and I can't control them. OH - how I want control! I want to leave with everything tied up in a perfect bow, coordinating wrapping paper, and everyone thinking how nice and smart I am.
Not being in control is SO hard for me. I get very squirmy. My coping mechanisms are either to barge in, steam roll over people, and just do it MYSELF or to bail and run far,far away. I can't do either of those here. I have to just live through it. I'm going for hour by hour, sometimes breath by breath.
Like the leaves of this oriental beauty tea, I can't hurry its unfurling. I have to breathe, and find the joy in watching life unfurl.
