I Hit the Ground Running?

We landed on-Island last night late. We are finally back. When the jet landed from Honolulu, it hit the ground with great speed, so much so that Patrick and I looked at each other and said, “Wow!” The time it took for the jet to slow down and come to a stop seemed like forever. It reminds me of when returning from being away, I say, “I hit the ground running.”

As I begin my re-entry to my life here and my day today. I have to be careful of that expression, “I hit the ground running.” It is easy to do that when you’ve been away and now you are moving quickly to catch up. There is a lot to do, but there can be a different way to approach it.

First of all, I have been working for the past 16 days. Between the death of my mom and our business trip to Los Angeles, I have been working. My focus has been pulled into different areas of my life and now all I am doing is re-focusing my energy. I choose to take a deep breath and know that all is getting done in the perfect time. I do not have to run to catch up. I am prayed up and caught up already. I am merely allowing myself to refocus. I am allowing things to unfold perfectly.

I am grateful to all the people here on Kaua’i who have assisted us in keeping our Center moving in our absence. I am grateful for this loving Island that always welcomes me with its beauty, peace and healing. I am grateful for the life that I live and for all its many facets. I am grateful to have all the energy I require and more in every moment. Life is energy, inexhaustible and creative. It is always flowing and moving through everything. I am grateful.

If I find myself still saying or thinking that, “I hit the ground running,” I take a deep breath and know that I am merely turning direction with all the time and energy and speed that I require in every moment. I’m not slowing down to come to a stop, but slowing down to that Center within that allows me to move at the perfect speed through everything.

Love and Aloha,

Rev. Rita
