Life’s funny, atleast thats what I’m going tell myself, in that it goes real smooth for a while, and then, when you’re really conscious of it needing to go well, it’s takes a big sh*t all over you. Like today.
It’s all too easy for us to throw in the towel, say it’s too hard, complain it never goes our way; but what will that do for us? In actuality – nothing.
Sometimes it’s just necessary to give life what it’s asking of you – faith. It doesn’t have to be religious or spiritual, it can even be just letting the process play itself out, knowing that ultimately some things will be within our control, while other things will not. Even those things that aren’t in our control rarely eventuate into the catastrophe we think they will. 9/10 times everything just goes A-OK. Read the book Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers, it explains the reality around that statistic.
So, what are we to do when life throws us curve balls? Grab a friend, someone you can trust, reach out to your online community, connect with a family member, pick up a journal, read a book, light a candle or dial a direct line to God and have a chat. Do what you can to control what you can. Then let the rest be.
In standing by this argument, I’m surrending to my wife and watching the final episode of Australia’s The Bachelor. That should chill me right out 🤓
