“Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness.” Caroline Myss
A few weeks ago I came across that quote and found it to be so inspiring! At the time I myself was resisting some changes happening in my own life. When I read this quote, I felt an automatic shift in my perspective about everything that was concerning me.
I felt as if the Universe was saying, “Emily, don’t worry!” Life is about embracing the new and the funny thing is, I know this already. But how come I didn’t think of it?
Sometimes we catch ourselves in patterns of thought, behavior, expectations of ourselves and of others, and most importantly the way we think our lives should be. Its hard sometimes to understand what is happening when things start to change. Life is shifting and guess what? So are you!
When you start to feel or see these changes and are feeling uneasy, just simply remember to embrace it with all of your feelings! Go with the flow. Don’t resist it and see where the Universe and life is trying to take you. You may even notice the more you resist the changes the more stressful life can be. Don’t do that to yourself! I know its easier said than done, but consider it a challenge for yourself! Try it and see what happens.
Life is a like a river and we are just a part of that natural energy. We can choose to go with the flow or go against it. In the words of Lao Tzu, “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” Trust that these changes are going to take you to where you are supposed to be.
