Don’t Call It a Comeback
Typically when someone doesn’t post on their blog for almost two months, this is the point where they come back, hat in hand, with a litany of apologies and some reasons/excuses for the absence. This won’t be that kind of post. Well, kind of.
For a while I thought maybe I’d said all I had to say here, but deep down I knew that wasn’t true. For one, I’ve been writing since I was 5 – it’s like breathing for me! Also, my spiritual and emotional growth is something I’ll keep working on for life. But I did spend a lot of the spring on the road and out of my routine – and consequently up in my head. It wasn’t always a good place to be – in fact, that’s a pretty dangerous place for me to be a lot of the time – but it’s where I was.
So this post is about acceptance – of wherever you are. It doesn’t mean you can’t or won’t change things, but accepting what IS can go a very long way to bringing out peace, sanity, serenity.
I’ve spent a fair amount of time lately considering my future – where I want to go, what I want to achieve, who I want to be. I guess to some degree I’ve always done that but I didn’t always believe that I could have what I wanted. Therefore, I never got it. I’ve worked to change those beliefs. I do think the universe brings us whatever we set as our intent – positive or negative.
But after all of the hard work going into planning, strategizing, list-making, analyzing, and so on, do you know what the hardest part actually is? Letting it all go.
I don’t mean giving up on it, sweeping it under the rug never to be seen again. I mean being OK with outcomes. Accepting them, releasing attachment to them.
Anyway, I’m still here, still working, and glad to share these moments with you. Namaste!
