… And even if it doesn’t work out (and it definitely hasn’t worked out the way I expected, like, at all) then atleast you have stories fun of adventures and epic character development.
Because even on my hard days, I know I have things that have worked out in their own weird way – and I say this as I’m sat having a lazy morning with my 3 children who all slept in my room last night and who I know one day will have their own lives and their own heartbreak and unique stories.
If you SWIPE you will see the reason why I’m constantly stressed, tired and annoyed but I wouldn’t change it. I can’t imagine my life without these little sods!
You must believe in what you’re doing, that what you’re doing is the proper thing, the right thing. And you should try to have faith that things will end up as they should, which doesn’t mean as you want them to, but things will work out as they should. When we stop trying to control events, they fall into a natural order, an order that works. We’re at rest while a power much greater than our own takes over, and it does a much better job than we could have done. We learn to trust that the power that holds galaxies together can handle the circumstances of our relatively little lives.
Commit to growing yourself. Growing yourself is important. Try not to avoid problems and or complain about problems. Try to not let them bother you – in fact, don’t even call them problems; you could refer to them as “challenges” or “situations”. Let go of the emotion and drama you create when you don’t get what you want. Just stay present and handle one situation at a time with an open mind and an open heart.
Trust yourself and in the universe that everything will work out in the end… Or, maybe just in a different way to how you hoped or expected.
With all that being said, it’s ok to grieve what you’ve lost, or expectations not succeeded in life. It’s ok that you’ve tried and failed. It’s ok to be sad. It’s ok to wish things had worked out differently. It’s ok to have regrets. It’s ok to not move on straight away.
Non of us are the same and we shouldn’t be expected to have the same life or the same way of dealing with things.
