So if you've been following me for awhile, you know I like to be in control. Like, I want to know what's going on, when, how, why, where. Long and short of it...I like to be in control.
And every so often, I need the reminder that I am not in control. I've never been in control nor will I ever be. And every so often, it comes in the form of something big. Something I don't necessarily like.
Because a lesson wouldn't be a lesson if it were fun, right?
And without fail, letting go is exactly what I need to do and what leads me exactly where I'm supposed to be.
There are truths we live in...truths we want so badly to be true. And we fight to keep them as so.
But in the end, are they really truths you want to stay in?
I've had so many things happen in the past year and a half. And I wanted nothing more than to change the truth I was living in. But where I ended up was so much better than what I could have imagined.
They helped me grow. They helped me succeed. And they helped me become the person I am today.
And I'm once again in a situation where I want to be in control. I want to know when certain things are going to happen, how it's going to work out, what the end result will be. And I'm once again humbly reminded that I have absolutely no control over any of it.
I have to put my trust and faith in God that things will work out exactly as they're supposed to. No matter how much I try to fight it or change it, there's nothing I can do to make any of it different. I have to let go and let life happen.
So I do this with a lot of praying. And a lot of faith. And knowing that I've been through a whole heck of a lot and have always come out on top.
I'm not saying it's easy. But I can promise you it's way better than stressing about it and being overly anxious about the outcome. Because in the end, we can't change the outcome. All we can change is how we react to it.
So that's my goal. Let go. And let life happen. Enjoy living in the moment. Not stress about what may or may not happen. And have fun doing so!
Do you need help with this? Because it's always better to have an accountability partner. And someone to talk to when things get tough. You know...other than God :)
I hope you all have a beautiful week. And learn to let go just a little.
With love and wellness,
