There Is More To Your Day

A lot has transpired today that was unplanned.  I’m not even sure, right at this moment, if I’m wanting to write about any of it yet.  I think I need more processing time.   What does that leave me to write about?  How about the lessons I’ve learned?  Great idea!

  1.  Do not walk into situations with expectations.  There is no need to make assumptions about the pending situation.  You don’t need to dwell, wonder or even think about what might happen.  There is nothing you can prevent or change.  The amount of time you spend on “what ifs” takes away from the actual event.  You know what you have to do; appointment, task or date of some sort.  The rest requires faith.  Faith that what is meant to happen, will happen.
  2. Embrace everything as it unfolds.   With no preconceived notions, you are not mentally blocking what is happening around you.  Nothing will be a curve ball. Nothing can blindside you.  It happened EXACTLY how it was supposed to.
  3. Don’t give up.  Sometimes, I lose things.  Names of websites.  Email addresses. These are not tangible items, I know.  Yet, when you can’t recall these pieces of information, it really feels as if they are lost.  Google is a wonderful thing.  Use it! Draw on what you can remember and search.  I found a website I wanted to find. I didn’t give up.   Recently, I desperately wanted to find an email address.   It was important I reach this person.  I searched old email accounts.  I was having NO luck.  I had completely missed searching one account though.  The name I used came to me.  I remember the password.  I found the email address I needed.
  4. Call upon your strength and faith.  When needing to do something that terrifies you so intensely, reach deep inside yourself.  In you, there are reserves of strength that will allow you to handle the toughest situations.   If you are of the belief that everything happens for a reason, have the faith to know that this is part of your journey.

I really am enjoying that I can find the positives.  Don’t get me wrong, nothing about my day was negative.  If I didn’t sit back and thick about what today meant to me, I wouldn’t see everything there was to see.  I’d only see the surface.  There is depth. Underneath the surface is where the richness lies.  Waiting for you to see it.  Waiting for you to bring it to the surface.  Waiting for you to accept it and acknowledge it’s presence.

Writing this, dear reader, was very helpful.  It was a way of processing my day.

Thank you!
