An excerpt from my horoscope today (Aquarius):

"Allowing ourselves to see our existence as a series of lessons to be learned rather than a set of perfectly executed decisions changes the nature of our lives. Instead of being paralyzed by indecision, we begin to relish the new experiences that come out of our choices."

Honestly, I don't mind being indecisive on the weekends. I make so many important decisions at work every day, taking a break from making a choice (or coming up with choices for other people) is totally necessary. Though I occasionally wonder if my indecision is hindering my progress.

I am the type of person who enjoys progress and change. When things get stagnant, I get bored, and tend to move on. But, with all the change over the last year, I have learned to enjoy "bored." I have found myself, suddenly, able to sit and stare at the wall, and listen to the quiet, and totally appreciate it. I can listen to my own inner voices, and relax while they chatter away. This is new for me.

I have been told, more than once (in the last week, even), that I need to slow down and relax, everything will happen the way it is supposed to in its own time. So, I have decided to take that advice to heart, and allow things to happen around me. No effort, no stress, just allowing. I am letting the universe take control. I know there are going to be times where I am frustrated (even annoyed), with the slow progress of things. I just have to remind myself to "do what I can with what I have" at the moment... and let all the stress of having to 'make' something happen, just for the sake of progress.
