Be Open to Everything but Attached to Nothing.
Be open to everything, but attached to nothing. When I heard this quote, I had to sit back and allow that to resonate.
I don’t know about you, but I am finally allowing myself to breathe through life. Through the good, bad, and ugly, I am learning to smile through it all.
I read a lot, and as the quote say, I am open to a lot of things, but I don’t hold anything to be law. I allow to let the things that I agree with resonate and the rest to freely go. But I came across a book that I loved. It mainly speaks on just allowing the Great Intelligence, The All, The Universe, God...whatever one likes to call it, but allow it to guide you through life. Not giving one batting eye at what happens, because you know it’s all for your good.
As I was reading this I came across something else that was in line with that. It said, everything in our body functions without us thinking about it. We breathe without thinking about it, our food digest, our blood flows, our eyelids blink...etc etc. All of these things go on without us interfering, and it works perfectly. How is that? By the divine force that is running in us and through us.
How come we can’t do the same in our life? Allow everything to go on, and know that it will work out perfectly without us having to think about it?
We have been told to write it and make it plain. To make vision boards, to think about what you want and to make it happen.
I started to do this and realized that this way made me absolutely crazy, and not only that, I held my breath through each moment, until it happened.
Case in point. When I graduated from college I went out looking for a job. I just had a baby and I definitely didn’t want to go right back to work because I was breastfeeding. But bills weren’t going to pay themselves. I had an interview with this one place and I knew it was perfect for me. I prayed that I would get it, and for 2 weeks I waited to get the call. The call came, and I didn’t get it. I felt defeated. I was absolutely hurt. I went on for 9 months worrying about getting a job.
Not really realizing I was at home doing exactly what I wanted. I was taking care of my baby. But I wasn’t focused on that, I was focusing on me not getting the job and not having one. Well, nearly 10 months later that same job called me and said the position opened again and that she wanted me to fill it because she loved me. If I had just chilled out and just allowed it to be, I could have enjoyed the time home with my baby. I did not go with the flow. I wanted things my way.
Now I have finally come to the place where I am going to breathe. I will allow things to work out as they will without my input. I will allow the universe to live in and through me. Basically, I am letting go and I will just live.
I wrote all of this to say that sometimes we as women have this laundry list of things we have to do at a certain time and how things supposed to look. I want to tell you to breathe and allow life to happen and unfold, as it will anyway, and discover what's in front of you now, so you don’t miss out on what's right in front of you.
