I had to remind myself to let go and breathe again recently.
I, like many others, am going through some real changes and it has not been very easy. I am being reprogrammed to leave my old ways behind and embrace new ones. My old ways are what brought me my successes and they are all I know. So it is hard to go with another untested route.
I am learning to just go with things and allowing the universe to steer me to where and how I need to be. Most days, I can embrace this but every so often, I throw my toys out of the pram! I then am reminded that it’s ok. There is nothing to fear. I am using self love consciously to help me to learn and grow.
So for all of those of you who are also going through this, you are not alone!
My friend Toni sent me this – it always makes me smile. When I look back at all of the different people who have come into my life and gone out, what has been written below begins to make sense.
You never know when your guardian angel will be there for you.
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person….
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.
