I have to continue to remind myself of what the situation actually is … not my interpretation or my story of what it is. It starts with getting clarity and being aware of how I feel emotionally and physically. It is NOT about my reaction to what is or an unrealistic fantasy about what should be. It is realizing what I really want and that my timing may or may not be honored by spirit at this time. It is about wanting something yet accepting what happens … letting go of my attachment to the outcome. It is trusting that the Universe has my back and everything happens for a reason. It is accepting that my limited human view and ego might not know what is best for me. It is about letting go of the thoughts that are creating this stress for me.
I like to ask myself questions and gauge my responses. Questions like:
How will I feel if I continue resisting?
What will it cost me?
How would it feel if I let go and let what is meant to be just happen?
What’s the worst case scenario?
How can I shift my thoughts?
What new beliefs do I need to have?
What can I learn from this situation?
What can I appreciate about this right now?
Then I tune in to my body and listen. And I know that above all: I HAVE A CHOICE. To act or react. To let go or keep resisting. To be in denial. To do nothing. To take action and change.
The most important question then becomes: What am I willing to do right now?
