Just a Reminder
Life can get so busy and before you know it time has passed you by! Sometimes it’s good to take inventory of the things that you do on a daily basis to remind yourself that you are human and are doing the best that you can. I had a “moment” in the wee hours of the morning after I looked over my long to do list and I got a little overwhelmed. I had this feeling that I wasn’t going to accomplish what I needed to accomplish and what I was doing wasn’t working or enough. I know, I tend to have these “moments”, but sometimes it’s not how many “moments” we have, but how we handle the “moments” and move on from it. So I decided to take a break and do what relaxes me the most and that is cooking, got it from my mother. As I was preparing my meals for the day, I tried to think of what was really bothering me. I thought of everything that I had accomplished thus far but I wasn’t satisfied. I was looking for specific results by a particular day, and that deadline was approaching fast! I realized that this was an unreasonable time frame for what I was trying to accomplish. I’ve waited so long for this and I’m so ready for it to happen, but I know that I won’t die if it doesn’t happen by my deadline. Letting go of trying to control how long something will take to manifest in your life or even IF something will manifest in your life, is really hard. Somewhere in your mind you feel like there is some magic equation, that if you find it you can surely MAKE anything you want work out exactly the way you want it and when you want it! It doesn’t work that way; some people get this sooner than others. I believe that as long as you do your best and give your best, everything will work out one way or another. Once you make peace with that fact, you can let go of the reigns. I’m not saying I will never have to remind myself of this again, but it’s good to know that my Spirit comforts me by letting me know that I will accomplish everything I set my mind and hands to do. I might not know when it will happen, but I do know that it will happen!
