The Feminine Pleasure of Persistence
When a woman lives in her head, as I have exhaustingly done for so many years, she only has access to the files of the past stored in her brilliant mind… impressive strategic initiatives that once conquered worlds. Given they succeeded in the past, when she is presented (love that word “presented” because it drives home that the fact that the only moment we have IS the Present Moment) when she is presented with a challenge… if she only looks in her mind to the past to solve it… she is setting herself up for struggle, panicked control, aggressive forceful trying, even manipulation. She is certainly creating attachment to the result, fueled by sheer blind will. It’s as if she turns her attention away from NOW and looks to the past for a solution while the present moment and all possibility is passing her by…wondering why she gets so exhausted trying to make something happen as she applies yesterday’s strategies to today’s challenges.
