You Are Not Behind

by: Susan Lamonica

Flylady says at the end of each communication: “You are not behind! I don’t want you to try to catch up; I just want you to jump in where we are. O.K.?”

I used to challenge that line. I’d think, what a joke. Of course I am behind. I desperately need to catch up. Then, a transformation. I began to hear the words as a daily blessing, from God to Flylady to my inbox.

– You are not behind! (forgive everything lost in the past).

– I don’t want you to try to catch up; (it’s impossible to change the past).

– I just want you to jump in where we are. (TODAY is all there is; be present).

– O.K? (make the conscious choice to say yes to life right now, just as it is).

How much it weakened my spirit, to live in regret over the yesterdays of my life. I started to see this moment can stand on its own and that my energy belongs to today.

“You are not behind! I don’t want you to try to catch up; I just want you to jump in where we are. O.K.?” It’s Flylady’s gift that taught me how to step forward. Forgive, be at peace, be present, and then choose “yes”. When I shine the sink and repeat Flylady’s words in my heart, it’s a prayer that God always hears.
