Today, be willing to attend to the important and the difficult. Trust that you do actually know what in your life most needs your attention right now. Although the rewards are great, this process isn't always easy, so don't be surprised, worried, or distracted by the emotions that may arise for you: fear, resentment, resistance, frustration, blame, guilt, weariness, the desire to escape. Work, one step at a time, with plenty of breaks and self-acceptance and a not-too-rigid outline of timelines or final results. You are attended by Love who helps you see truth and gives you courage, humor, and resilience.
