365 Letters to Myself
November 19th, You don't have to have it all figured out...
So glad I don’t, because I really feel in a place where it is not all figured out. When it appeared it was I did not realize it or maybe appreciated it as much as I should. Now I get to have an adventure to see if I can figure it out, while balancing my faith, resilience, openness to what shows up.
Does anyone truly have it all figured out? I am going with no. At all our cores there is something, somewhere within, without, that simply defies being able to own this state. Of course, some of us are better, farther along than others but at any time, a single event will disrupt and or challenge them. Besides, where is the fun if nothing needs to be figured out.
It is what we do when this feeling, state occurs. Realization goes a long way, as well as curiosity and what action will be taken. That is really all being asked of us. Be accepting (not complacent), patient and kind to ourselves – perhaps applying the tradition of taking it “one day at a time.”
Hmmm, just DO the best we can…day 126!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
