The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: July 28, 2011
Quote of the Day:
“Sometimes you gotta just take things for what they are and appreciate them, not try to label it or explain it. Explanations take the mystery out of it, you know?” ~Sarah Ockler
The Single Woman Says:
Let life be what it’s gonna be. Don’t try to force, push, plot, plan, or manipulate it. So many times in life we sweat it when we should just forget it. This doesn’t mean you should stop caring…it means you should stop CONTROLLING. I had a wonderful conversation last night with a friend about the importance of letting things happen organically, without trying to force the outcome. Without fail, every time in my life that I want something SO badly, I try to MAKE it happen instead of LETTING it happen, it never happens. But when I take a couple of steps back, surrender the outcome, and allow the Universe to guide my way, God never fails to find a way.
So take a deep breath today. Release your labels, your explanations, your expectations, and your urgency and just LET LIFE HAPPEN. You’ll be amazed at how smoothly things go when you surrender control. You don’t need ALL the answers right now. Live with the questions for awhile…and sit calmly in the place between. Life doesn’t require your relentless participation. Step out of the driver’s seat and enjoy the sweet, simple beauty of being a passenger on this wildly beautiful journey we call life. Stop frantically searching for the destination…and before you know it, you’ll look up and the destination will have found YOU.
