That being said, I am thinking seriously about the inevitability of our life process:
“Everything that has happened had to happen. Everything that must happen cannot be stopped.—Dwayne Dyer”
Excerpt From: Vanzant, Iyanla. “Acts of Faith.” Fireside, 2001-08. iBooks.
We often waste time and energy working against the natural flow of life. We struggle through life trying to change the natural life process. We need to discern between giving our very best and when to let go.
I’ve learned to tune into my inner spirits for advice. I rely on my gut and walk by faith through life. As difficult as it is sometimes, I realize that I grow from pain. We learn lessons in the valley that prepare us for the mountain top.
As the seasons change, we should become wiser. With life lessons under our belts, we should know that change leads to new opportunities. We must grieve for the status quo, but not forever. As you come to terms with the inevitability of change, focus on new possibilities. Develop a new vision for your life.
If you refocus on your passion and the joy that passion brings to your life, your mood will improve. In time you’ll be able to embrace change…it’s inevitable.
How do you relinquish control of the inevitable and focus on a passion-filled life?
