Humans love to plan. We are very good at making schedules, checklists, and generally ensuring we measure what is happening in our lives and when.
Don’t get me wrong, planning and preparation are important! This practice is key to creating a structure that leads to successful outcomes.
But sometimes life doesn’t go to plan. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, life has its own plan and goes differently than we predict.
This kind of disruption can be a frustrating thing to experience. There are many ways in which it can show up in our lives, too. It could be a breakup, a business failing, losing a job, or becoming unwell.
But is it always a bad thing that things don’t go the way we want them to? Could things not working out as we expected actually be a blessing in disguise?
Change Your Perspective. | Moving Forward
If we take the perspective that life is happening FOR us rather than TO us, we can find peace.
When we make this simple shift in our mindset, we can embrace the concept that if things don’t go the way we expect or hope they will, perhaps the universe is preparing us for something better.
Have Faith. | Moving Forward
Embracing change requires faith and it requires trust. It means relinquishing control, if only momentarily, and surrendering to the grand divine plan for your life.
It means trusting in your higher self, and knowing that although you may not see it, things are always working in your favour.
Practice Acceptance. | Moving Forward
When we embrace that life is working in our favour, we can accept things as they are. We accept that what has been and gone was no one’s fault. It just wasn’t right.
Whatever has left your life has been pushed out for a reason. There was a misalignment in the vibration.
Surrender. | Moving Forward
When we surrender to life, it means allowing life’s magic to move with you.
There is a common misconception that people have around surrender. It does not mean giving up on what you want. This simply isn’t true.
Even in surrender, you still need to set the course, hold a vision for your life and never let go of it! Focus on what you want. Keep sharp, keep doing your own inner work. Stay true to you and your calling, not compromising or self-sacrificing.
It’s not always easy to accept things when they don’t to plan in life, but with this new perspective, you will find way more peace in the uncertainty. Move forward with faith and confidence and the universe will align for you.
