“Relax. You’re on a journey of discovery. Let life reveal itself to you.”Melody Beattie
My daughter was packing to go to her Dad’s and asked, “What are you doing this weekend?” I replied, “I’m going to not think so much.” I’ve just been enjoying the journey.
I once told my daughter, “I don’t have any problems,” and compared to the rest of the world I don’t, but I can create them in my mind. It takes just as much time to pray as it does to worry. It doesn’t zap your energy, it’s healthier and much more effective.
In listening to my meditation last night, the teacher was talking about ‘acceptance’ of things as they are. Some things in life can be changed quickly, some more slowly and some are out of our control.
“Ah…This is the way things are for now.”
Time passes and things change. Sometimes it’s our perspective and other times God steps in. I remembered telling my daughter, “I don’t have any problems”, but then came to this realization.
Just because there’s nothing wrong, doesn’t mean everything’s right. In the interim I can continue to enjoy the journey.
Have a week of splendidness. ~ Barb xx
