Nobody wants to stay in a period of prolonged distress. Nobody wants to live a life of misery. We all envision the life of our dreams and so dearly hold on to it. But so often our plans fail miserably. Are you struggling with this scenario? Do you feel lost as if nothing is happening as you want it to happen? Allow me to help you through my words.
First of all, my heart-felt compassion and good wishes for all those who are going through this pain and suffering. There is absolutely no need to worry. No matter how you feel, remember that you are never alone in this.
Now, lets take an example from our daily life. When we want to get a nice haircut we choose the best salon, make sure we choose the best look for ourselves and above all we aim for the best in almost everything. We are often given pictures of models with different hair styles and we go through them before choosing one. But nothing is certain. No matter how careful we are we may never know if the particular hair cut will look good on us before we get it done.
In our life too, we all want to hold the pair of scissors and shape our lives as we want. But we arent truly aware of the disasters we can create. We might chop off healthy relationships and money-making opportunities. We might keep all the toxic relationships which might be looking good at the moment. Thats why the divine does not allow everything to go as we have planned.
When nothing is going as per our plans, we must first delete the picture in our heads. It may not be for our highest good. We must shift our focus from a life that looks good to a life that feels good. When we have a hair-cut and look at ourselves in the mirror, we might initially like it. But as we go on with our life, we might realise that we arent able to carry out this look. You might get fringes and regret your decision or you may simply be comfortable with them. The thing is that which looks good in the moment may not always feel good in the long run.
So, how do we handle situations which are completely out of our control? How do we deal with the stress when none of our plans work out? The first important thing to remember is to stop delaying and denying what lies in front of you. Closing your eyes wont make your fears disappear. Witness your fears, show up with faith and stop catastrophising the future. Saying yes to life means showing up with courage. It means remembering that our true power lies in accepting our flaws and loving ourselves unconditionally even when we are in distress. Sending you all so much love and light.♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡
