This year has been filled with challenges and triumphs. It seems everything has been different and not quite as we expected. Our family faced a series of unexpected health challenges that changed our plans for the summer and our future. There were job and business changes, losses, promotions and added responsibilities. The weather seemed to pay no attention to the seasons bringing spring late and summer yet to arrive. There were new babies and new drivers. Vacations were changed and weekly days off seemed to be rescheduled with little notice.
Reflecting on this I realized just how beneficial it could be to our spirit to just let go and release any and all expectation. It is during this time you have to know what you believe. We believe things happen for us and not to us. Disappointment comes when we determine or have an expected outcome of anyone or any situation and find it does not happen as we thought. This was just a reminder to let go of expectation. Everything happens for our good it is just up to us to receive and believe it.
When facing the days and weeks ahead; with all the busy work that comes with summers end, pause. Take a moment to breathe in deeply and exhale all the worry and anxiety that come with a preconceived outcome. Open your eyes and mind to new potentials and possibilities. Know what you want but accept that you will receive that which is for your highest good or better.
Much love, Many blessings Sheila
