Ok, so you know those days when youre doubting? You just started something new and youre not sure if its good enough to make it. Youve run out of money to buy food and your cupboards have some garlic, potatoes and a cabbage… Youve not been in a relationship in more than a year and youre not even sure anymore how to get going with the opposite sex.
You have no idea if what youre doing now is the right thing for the future that you want. Maybe youre not even sure what you want for your future? Youre worrying about the HOW. How will I make this happen? How do I need to act/behave to get what I want? How will I make it? HOW?
All of the above is in fact exactly where I am at this present moment in my life. Im sure youve all been there or somewhere close.
If I take a step back and take a look at what I have, or dont have, Im actually pretty blessed. But thats not the point of this post.
The point is, for me to get through this, I have to practice The Art of Just.
Whats The Art of Just? Well, to me, its this
Just Let Go…
Before I start getting into a panic, or letting that anxiety creep up on me – I have to Just Breathe.
Before I let the lists of things I want and need overtake my mind, I have to Just Let Go.
Before everything overwhelms me, that huge, massive, imposing HOW monster, I have to Just Trust.
Now, whether youre into God, a Goddess or The Universe, the trust bit is leaving the How up to them.
“The Creator” wants the best for us and we can have the best if we just let it happen and trust that what we want and need will come, in it’s own sweet time.
Ive lived through a lot of hardship and Ive made it to 32 with a warm and safe place to live, all my limbs and senses, a laptop and the internet where I can share my experiences and accumulated wisdom and hopefully make a positive difference in the lives of others.
That just goes to show that despite hitting rock bottom numerous times, I was never intended to stay there, even though when youre there you cant see any way out.
The only constant is change. Nothing ever stays the same. This too shall pass.
Breathe… Let Go… Trust…
