Letting Life Happen


Life has been crazy for us all in 2020 and all that has been happening in our world. Social Distancing, homeschooling and learning to live life in a way that feels very foreign. I keep thinking about how life is a lot like how it probably was 100 years ago when my Great Grandparents were growing up. Families working together, playing together, eating together and having real conversations.


For me this time has been a process...of surrendering to how life is, not how I think it should be. Learning to flow with a new rhythm of life. Letting go of expectation because let's face it homeschooling and having the whole family home is not easy and everyday has been different. Some days are harder than others, right?


What I have been thinking about is how wonderful life can be when we just let go of how life "should" be and really let it go and let life just happen for us (instead of to us)


What great rewards we can receive when we let life guide us on our path to purpose. Moments and situations seem to flow with a distinct pattern and insight without the force of our own hands. What powerful occurrences take place when we simply stop to allow them to. It is the wave we ride, not go against. Allowing life to happen doesn't mean we are to take no action at all. In fact the opposite is said to be true. There is always footwork to be done. We have to meet life half way. The effort you put into yourself and the world around you is what will essentially be returned to you. We have to recognize opportunity and then if it is fitting to our path, we can then work to obtain it. Allowing life to unfold means we are creating adequate space for life to breathe on its own terms. Soon we discover that we are surrounded by the appropriate people at the appropriate times. People, places, and things become almost precisely placed in our lives almost like actors and props in a play. We have the ability to embrace these moments and people and take with us the lessons we have learned. When we let life happen we are admitting to ourselves that there is a universal force surrounding us and our capabilities. Every move we make is part of the intricate make up of our environment, emphasizing how important each of us truly is. We can listen to this natural movement of life or we can turn a deaf ear and proceed into blindness, never seeking that which we were intended. It is up to us to observe and participate in the orchestrated sequences occurring all around us. Pay attention to life's directions at work. We may not have been born with maps in our hands, but we were born with an intuitive sense of direction. It's up to us to take the time to look at the world around us, understand the options before us, and pay attention to where we feel we truly belong.
