Do you know how hard it is to write while holding a dog that follows his nose everywhere and has the need to be 10 metres further up the road 10 minutes ago?
If you don’t, well it’s hard.
Sometimes I open up my phone and have no idea what I’m going to say. All I know is that I have something to say. It feels right.
Isn’t it strange how we focus a lot of our attention on what we don’t know? Have you even noticed that we do that?
When’s next promotion? Next boyfriend? Next car? Meal?
We focus on what sally thinks of us? What susie is doing next? What we are next going to need money for?
What’s next for us? What’s happening tomorrow? Omg you get my point.
We get so caught up in what’s next and quite frankly what we can’t control and what we don’t know that we miss the beauty around us now.
Today I woke up in a funk. Everything in life is great but something, today, left me feeling out of sorts.
A walk is where I sort myself out, so off I go.
Being so focused on what you don’t know, blurs the beauty of what we do know – (Hodgkinson, C – 2019)
Changes and uncertainty help us grow. Letting our past go helps us welcome new miracles. Living with uncertainty leaves us vulnerable. Vulnerability is power.
I have no idea. Absolutely none, about my bigger picture. The control freak in me is FREAKING out. She wants to plan, know the answer, see the future, know the next step.
But I don’t know it.
And rather than just trusting the universe I’m trying to control the things that I simple don’t know. Leaving me feeling lost, withdrawn and exhausted.
Focusing on what I don’t know has blurred the beauty in what I do know.
This realisation has allowed me to breathe into being present. Dig deep into gratitude and simply restore my trust in the universe.
You don’t always have to know your next step, but one thing I do know is that the universe very much has our backs.
We are exactly where we are meant to be xx
