Yup. You heard me. (Hey, Fear, are you listening?)
In fact, it very often isn’t.
I have moved house twice in the last ten months. That’s kinda sucky. But here’s the thing. This second time, I moved into a lovely little flat in St Kilda.
Blue mosaic floors in the bathroom.
A fabulous wooden-deck balcony.
And, by inner-Melbourne standards, very well priced.
It was also very easy.
This is what happened. I had a bit of a nasty situation arise in the share house I had been living in, and I decided I didn’t want to live there any more. I also had houseguests arriving imminently so I had a week to find a place and move into it. Yeah, right.
I did a bit of research on the internetz, as you do, and lined up ten places to view one Saturday morning. I drew a heart next to my current address, before I had ever viewed it, and by the time I got to viewing it, I was hot, thirsty, cranky, and visually exhausted because I had seen so many flats. And there were loads of people at the viewing. Like, loads. But I decided I may as well apply, what the hell.
Wednesday, the agent called to offer me the flat. Friday, I collected the keys. Saturday, I moved. A friend helped me so I didn’t even need to hire removalists.
We had a lot of fun. Remember this?
Just like that. Easy. No drama.
The work I’m doing with Kerry is the same. She wrote about it the other day actually. It’s what my friend Pam refers to as ‘Flow Work’: High Challenge, Low Effort. Don’t get me wrong, we work plenty. It’s just that we are both really passionate about it, and we work in unusual ways. While getting our nails done, for example.
It doesn’t have to be hard.
And you know what? You still deserve it if it came easily and smoothly. Probably more so, because it means you are finding your Right Way.
The processing from the workshop has ‘landed’, and it feels great! It feels, in fact, like it was all totally worth it. It doesn’t have to be hard…
Do you believe you have to struggle to get what you want? Do you believe you don’t deserve things if you haven’t worked really hard for them?
