A lot has been going on in my life here of late. Quite a few changes and attempts to make life more enjoyable. In the midst of it all, a lot of confusion has ensued and it’s definitely been a time for some deep soul searching.
When things don’t turn out as we might wish, it can cause the volume on the mind chatter to ramp up to unbelievable levels. We are thinking that things should be some other way than what they are. But all the wishing in the world doesn’t change many things in life and such is the case presently with me.
Denial also found its way into the picture. Thinking things would be as I wanted them to be and ignoring the factors that said otherwise. But there reaches that point where the round peg just can’t be forced into the square hole and one has to surrender it all to the Universe.
It can take the most difficult of times and most uncomfortable of circumstances for us to be able to say, “I’ve done my best and my best just wasn’t good enough.” Divine providence whispers to remind us that some things just aren’t mean to be as we might want and that perhaps there is something much better on the horizon.
And so we move forward in quiet reflection, pondering what might have been and looking to the future with anticipation of what will be there to take the place of what we once wanted. Such is life as I see it on this day.
