Leading on from my last post, the same inconvenience I mentioned continued. As Murphy’s law states, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
I guess sometimes we cannot stop chaos to exist.
This inconvenience (the disconnect with my phone) continued on so long that I officially shed the first tears of 2017 because of it. And it wasn’t that I felt sorry for myself, but it was frustrating as hell – especially when you do all that there is in your power to make sure you cover your ass in every single thing you do, facilitating personal and professional affairs. All in all, I believe all of this was a lesson that I’ve been taught and retaught (that’s not a word, but you get what I’m saying) a million times over.
Lesson: Let go of the things you cannot control!
No doubt, I failed! I fought and fought and fought to have things bend my way and ultimately the cards fell right where they started. Nowhere. There are multiple other variables to this, but the overall premise is that those things did not matter.
I’m not at all a control freak. But as an entrepreneur, rule number one says you must cover your tail at all ends. You’re all you’ve got.
I’ve spent years becoming and being over efficient in all that I do that, in the same breath my strength also became my weakness.
The universe, God, the holy one, whatever you call your spiritual teacher, knows best. And much like I continue to learn, even in the worst of the worst situations, you’re still being led to something you ultimately desire.
“Sometimes letting go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.” – Eckhart Tolle
