2016 is quickly expiring. Here are TWO very prominent lessons that I’ve learned/relearned in 2016 thus far.
I, for the most part, have always been a pretty tough cookie. That doesn’t mean I don’t cry, love hard, or get angry. It actually means the opposite.
If I love you, I’d kill for you.
If I cry, it’ll be hard for me to stop. So, I try not too. In public anyways…
If I get angry, lets just say I have a future and I’m not a fool. I don’t like the feeling and quite frankly, I don’t have the energy to waste. I’ll take exit door #1.
Lesson Numero Uno:
This lesson validates what I just told you above. I put NOTHING…not my future, my heart, or my well-being in another woman or man’s hand. Not ONE thing. All weight is on me!
Now this is not to say that I do not HOPE the people who care about me and are in my corner are not going to be cheering for me along way, providing the things I need when needed. Dammit I hope so! I’ve created a pretty powerful network for that exact purpose. My future is a collective effort. I Am, we are.
However, I CANNOT put that weight or expectation on them. I can’t! Because they couldn’t possibly know and understand FULLY my emotions and burning passion towards my future. But someone does. Me!
Lesson Numero Dos:
Any and every obstacle, circumstance, or situation that is diverting me from my plans, is carefully courting me towards my ultimate plan. Therefore, instead of wasting precious energy on wondering what the heck is going on I sit, wait, and flow with the new course I’m being sent towards.
Now, this is NEVER easy as the situation is in progress but I swear to you. If you take a minute to BE STILL and ask yourself, “What do I need to learn?” You will get your answer. Guaranteed!
Let disruptions happen. Sometimes we need to be interrupted in the most annoying ways for us to get the ultimate picture. Just don’t get in your own way throughout the process. Trust and believe that what every is happening is happening for and never against you.
Well…there you have it! The two most prominent lessons that I’ve learned/relearned in 2016 thus far.
Now share with me. What have you learned in 2016?
