When I wrote my last post, I was convinced my “issues” were behind me and I was ready to move forward. What I didn’t know was there was a lesson looming that I had to learn before I could truly move forward. The lesson? Sometimes we need to surrender to the power of the Universe. That’s it.
I took some measures into my own hands yesterday to be proactive in checking on my financial mishap to ensure it wouldn’t continue to haunt me. In the process, I ended up with more confusion and frustration than I had in the prior two weeks. After speaking with several people who I thought would be able to assist me, I was told “there is nothing you can do”. Excuse me what? This situation that I want so desperately to “fix” is out of my hands? I don’t understand.
After fighting with that thought for an hour or so, I gave in. I accepted the fact that this particular situation had to play out however the Universe saw fit. I had to surrender in order for it to resolve itself. And while I wanted to fix it, I couldn’t. So, I opened my arms, said a little prayer giving the situation and outcome over to the Universe with faith that all would be well in the end. At that point something amazing happened. I didn’t worry or fret about it as much and I simply moved through my day changing my thoughts to whatever I was currently working on. I couldn’t worry about it anymore, for it was now out of my hands.
This morning I woke up refreshed from a good night’s sleep and grateful for the free feeling I had upon waking. I could feel a freshness in the air and a new energy for my day that made me smile. I didn’t even think about the financial situation for I was able to see past it and into the many blessings I had around me at the moment. My son, my partner, and our lives together. I had finally let go.
When I checked on the issue this morning, it had finally been resolved and not only that, I was able to get all of the fees associated with this issue reversed as well. In that moment I opened my heart and gave a heartfelt prayer of thanks to the universe for taking care of the situation as tears of joy flowed. I learned my lesson and am so grateful for knowing that all things work out no matter how bad they seem if and when you surrender.
In the midst of my surrendering, I became very aware of the many simple things that I often overlook. For instance, the amazing blue sky that greeted my son and I on the way to his t-ball game last night or the white fluffy clouds that caught our attention on the way home. I was reminded of the simple yet abundant pleasures we have all around us. I felt the soft breeze coming in my office window this morning and appreciated the warmth of the sun on my face as I took a moment to truly be in my body. These are moments we take for granted far too often when we rush around worrying about a time that has yet to arrive.
With a long weekend ahead of us, I hope you find many simple things to be grateful for and that you slow down long enough to enjoy them.
Have a wonderful weekend and as always thank you for reading!
