My mom doesn’t like mushrooms or peanut butter because she doesn’t like the consistency of either.
Consistency has been my word of the moment in business but when you think about it, it really the crux of all of our work and practices. What you attend to grows. If you do squats every day, even just a few, your booty will look “better” (such a subjective topic, but you get it). If you meditate daily, your mind, like any other muscle, will train into its fittest form. Like a seed blossoming into a plant, flower or tree takes consistent sunlight, water, oxygen and time, our own blossoming takes consistency to cultivate lasting benefits.
The flip side is tricky. You can do something “bad,” step out of line once and suffer negative consequences. Or you can step out on yourself, on your health, on your job, your family, whatever, once and be just fine. You can do “bad” consistently… the laws of our universe say it will catch up with you. Karma… do dirt, get dirt… Darn this stuff is tricky. Because it might not even catch up with you.
But I can guarantee the “good” work done with consistency will. It just takes time. But, hey, we are here anyway! Some fellow rescuers get frustrated at the number of abandoned rabbits on Long Island or at the number of negligent stores selling rabbits with no more care than the way one might sell a bottle of soda, but if we continue our mission with consistency, it will absolutely work. If we truly believe in the work we are doing and we do the work with passion and consistency, we will make a positive, lasting impact. We are already and we continue to do so every day.
You may get disheartened, discourage or even dismantled at times… but when your goals are real, when you believe in your effort, when you find your purpose and act on it with consistency, you will reach the most beautiful moments.
Special love and light to Alexa, one of my darling bunny clients, who is battling head tilt. Keep fighting Alexa. Much love.
