It’s the time of year where blackberries are ripening in my backyard, however, many of them are still not ready to come off the vine.
Have you ever tried eating a blackberry when it was not quite ripe? Even if there’s just a little bit of resistance to pull it off, it will be sour.
However, if you are patient, the blackberry ripens and will be so sweet, and so easy to pull off.
I’ve been taking the wisdom of the blackberry to heart this summer and reminding myself it’s okay to slow down and wait for my ripeness.
I’ve been remembering that the times in my life where I pushed before I was ready, it felt like a struggle.
If you are willing to be patient, willing to wait for your ripeness, it will be easy.
Where have you been feeling a struggle in your life? Could it be that you’re pushing before your ready? Maybe it’s time to listen to the wisdom of the blackberry, to be in the joy of waiting for your ripeness.
I have lots of projects, ideas and creations in the works now, including a new one-on-one offering for creative, wild & free women with an entrepreneurial spirit.
I’m excited to share more as these projects come into their ripeness. Stay tuned for more info coming soon…
With love, gratitude & patience,
