Sometimes we all tend to get trapped in expecting life to kneel to our wants and desires. However, more times than not, life just doesn’t bend the knee so easily.
So what is required of us when this happens?
Patience. Lots of it.
It’s ok to want things and to dream and to hope. In fact, it’s healthy to think and feel this way, so long as it is positive in nature.
However, it is important to relax our grip on expectation, otherwise it can cause stress and harm our lives.
Allow life to unfurl in its own way, without keeping score or counting the minutes. Just like an Apple that is still attached to the tree, we should allow our positive thoughts and affirmations to ripen naturally.
Stressing over the future, and whether or not our wants will come to fruition will not help. This is because the Apple will fall when its ready…so allow natural forces to work the way they work. Have the patience, positivity and the will to avoid becoming consumed with it.
This way, one can stay present and be able to enjoy what is happening IN THE NOW rather than trying to bend the natural order of things.
So dream, hope and want…but try to release the expectations and control.
Be kind… Be positive… Be more present than you were the day before.
