I’m Slowly Learning To Just Let Things Be For Myself

I’m Slowly Learning To Just Let Things Be For Myself

I’m learning not to force things to happen.

I’ve accepted the fact that there are a lot of things that are out of my control in life. I have placed them in the hand of God and I’ve allowed the universe to bring me what’s mine in due time. I’ve decided to let go of chasing the things in life that aren’t meant for me. I’m tired of chasing things that won’t be still and can’t be held close as my own. I believe that what’s meant for me will find me in due course of time. This does not mean I’m going to be submissive to the ways of the world, but to rather not fight a losing battle. 

learning to let it be

 I’m learning to let love find me. 

I will no longer let my love be enshrouded by clouds of doubt. I am done with the endless cycle of trying to decipher mixed signals and signs. Instead, I’m allowing the message that is as clear as day to find its way to me. The message that will not let me be second guessing anything at all. 

I’m understanding the difference between those who want me in their life and those who don’t. I am allowing those that don’t want to be in my life to walk out the door with no hesitation. I’m becoming more aware of what it is that I expect from a relationship and what I need to sacrifice in order to maintain one. I do not want to share my heart with someone that doesn’t hold it to protect it. 

I’m learning to be more grateful for life 

I’m learning that life must not be taken for granted and that I am here for a reason. No matter what my purpose in life may be, I’m learning to go and grow on this journey with a grateful heart and enthusiastic spirit. I realize how precious yet how vulnerable life is and I understand that I am capable of sharing my warmth with others and that what goes around comes around. Everyday I am learning to  appreciate the day and understand how valuable it is.

I’m learning to be patient with myself. 

I have understood the fact that there is no need to rush through life. I remind myself  to take it one day at a time. Neither will I beat myself up for the mistakes that I have made in the past nor will I let these mistakes define me. I am defined by the lessons that I learn from these mistakes and I am patient with my growth. Time will tell and I will listen. 

The wisdom that I acquire from the lessons that I have learned make me more capable to face the obstacles that may come my way. The mistakes have made me realize that I have tried to force my way into things that weren’t meant for me. 

I’m learning to stop trying so hard to control my life 

I am striving to be at peace with where life takes me on this journey and learning to accept that I do not have all the answers to the questions that race through my mind and that it’s okay. I’m learning to eventually go along with what the universe has in store for me instead of trying to have my way in everything. I am eventually understanding life has its ways of giving me what I need and not necessarily what I want. I’m learning to be grateful for all the memories, bonds, laughter,peace and pain that life has blessed me with in order to grow and look forward to more to come. 

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” — Oprah Winfrey

As I slowly learn to just let things be and allow myself the freedom to not be so worried over the course of my life, I’m taking things one day at a time and taking it easy on myself. 

I am learning to let the force of life move me rather than forcing it instead.

How manage control your dark side

When your dark side takes control

When your dark side is in control, you don’t recognize yourself. The dark side of your psyche gives rise to thoughts and feelings that make you afraid yet tempted. It distorts your thoughts and emotions, yet it feels so right. And perhaps this is why we are even more scared of our dark side. So we suppress it and keep it hidden away from the world, even our loved ones. But we know deep within us, within its confines, our dark side grows silently, patiently looking for a way out. And when it does come out, all hell might break loose.

How to Tame and Silence Your Inner Critic: 5 Ways

Ways Tame And Silence Your Inner Critic

“Turn down the volume of your negative inner voice and create a nurturing inner voice to take it’s place. When you make a mistake, forgive yourself, learn from it, and move on instead of obsessing about it. Equally important, don’t allow anyone else to dwell on your mistakes or shortcomings or to expect perfection from you.” ― Beverly Engel. This one quote perfectly shows why it's important to silence your inner critic.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with your inner monologue? You know, the voice that can motivate you to press on or stop you dead in your tracks and make you feel a few inches tall.

It is the same voice that attempts to protect you from shame, embarrassment, or making a mistake. If not tamed and regulated, this voice morphs into an intense critic, one that can sabotage and stagnate if it gains too much power.
