I had to create today’s Daily Inspiration visual with this mantra myself because it’s something I need to absorb for a very particular reason at this moment. I know many of you can relate to the feeling of wanting something that is out of your control. We believe this one thing will make us happy and complete and so we grab onto it like white on rice.
It’s happened to me in the past that I was very determined to make a certain outcome take place. I was sure that was my destiny but it turned out that life had other plans for me. The positive thing is that when I didn’t get what I wanted it was because something better was waiting for me and I couldn’t have guessed that at the time.
It takes a lot of courage to have faith in the unknown. Uncertainty is a scary creature for us and yet we will walk with it throughout our life so we better get somewhat comfortable with it. We don’t always know what’s best because we don’t have the full picture. We don’t know what’s waiting for us around the corner that will change the equation.
We must trust the outcome of certain events even if they don’t suit us on the short term or correspond to our life plan. Let’s take in a deep breath and release our attachment to the outcome we’ve been grasping onto.
Inhale for 5 seconds and then on the exhale: I believe, I trust, I let go.
