Sometimes you need a kick in the pants to drag your sorry ass out of bed, but sometimes you also need to give that sorry ass a break by giving it a comfy cushion to sit on. Sometimes you just need to give up your ideas and your notions and your struggles; sometimes you just need to stop fighting. Sometimes just showing up and relaxing are all that is necessary: actually, that's probably all that's necessary most of the time. Showing up and relaxing: is that for you or for me? In the end, I think showing up and relaxing is something we do for us both, together. You show up, you do your best, you relax, confident that the universe and the present moment will take care of the rest.
