Posts on this blog have empowered us as it has grown. It’s gone from being posts on feelings and emotions to empowerment and taking control of our life back. We've been taught that outcomes are determined by our reaction to a situation. We know that it's up to us how we let others affect us and we realize that if we want something, we can make it happen.
Here's a question for you though, what if things don't go as smoothly as all that?
After all we only have absolute control over our inner world and cannot manipulate other people into acting, saying, or doing what would result in our utmost happiness.
In my journey one of the most liberating truths I learned was “it just is.” When you can accept what is peace will come with that acceptance. It’s a type of surrender but not in a bad way. You are choosing not to let a situation affect you. You realize you can’t do anything to change it.
If you get all worked up and stressed over something that is beyond your control, what good does it do? In fact it gobbles up otherwise good energy units that can be used to have peace of mind and clear focus. If you chose to obsess and the matter festers, your wings will be clipped. That’s definitely not what a shining soul wants!
So next time a situation arises in which you finding yourself feeling helpless, accept it as ‘just is’ and experience the peace that comes with it.
