Have faith and know that even if you aren’t where you think you should be in your life there is a reason for this. We’ve all been witnesses of how life can work in magical ways if we just learn to let go a little. I’ll be honest, it’s not my default setting to “go with the flow” but I’m starting to realize more and more that I can get in my own way if I try to control everything.
We have to find the balance between putting the work in and then taking a step back.
It’s a type of learning that takes a while to master but it’s so worth it. Think back to moments when you trusted a little more and manipulated a little less. Didn’t something unfold you couldn’t have even imagined?
Take a moment today to pause and breathe in faith, then breathe out control.
Gabrielle Bernstein has a great “releasing meditation” on iTunes which I listen to often and highly recommend (it’s #24 on her Spirit Junkie Guided Meditations compilation).
Speaking of Gabrielle Bernstein and trusting life, Gabby has a new book coming out on September 27 which I am so excited about. It’s called The Universe Has Your Back and I will of course be purchasing it. Let me know if you would like me to share my review! Check out Gabby’s book.
Wishing you a healthy + happy Labor Day! xo
