“Life keeps leading us on journeys we would never go on if it were up to us. Don’t be afraid. Have faith. Find the lessons. Trust the journey today.
We are all beautiful human beings, just trying to find our way. Today and every day we seek to better understand the meaning of our lives. We long to discover our gifts and release them fully into the world, and we hope to find happiness, peace, and strength along the way. For some of us, the key to these desires rings loud and clear, driving what we do and how we do it from moment to moment. For others, these deep seeded needs are buried below the noise of daily life, below ego, below fear, below the pressures and norms that we face in society… and thus, they are rarely addressed.
It seems we are all here to realize these truths in our own way, in our own time. And once they resonate fully, not just intellectually, but emotionally and spiritually, we are then better able to find the happiness, peace, and strength we seek…
- Everything you love and everything you are comfortable with is changing today.
Most of the things we desperately try to hold on to, as if they’re real, solid, everlasting fixtures in our lives, aren’t really there. Or if they are there in some form, they’re changing, fluid, impermanent, or simply imagined in our minds.
- Ninety-eight percent of the pain you feel today is self-created by your emotional attachments to the past.
Growth is painful. Change is painful. But in the end, nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere in the past.
- Many of the things you’d like to control today are better left uncontrolled.
Stepping back and allowing certain things to happen means these things will take care of themselves, and your needs will also be met. You will have less stress (and less to do), and more time and energy to work on the things that truly matter, and the things you actually can control—like your attitude about everything.
- Your time today is more priceless and fleeting than it feels.
Take time to realize what you want and need. Take the time to take risks. Take time to love, laugh, cry, learn, and work for what you need. Life is shorter than it often seems.
You are not alone.
You are not your circumstances.
You have everything within you to live a purpose-filled life.
