When life throws you an unexpected curveball, what do you do?
These cataclysmic occurrences, ignite and stir up new feelings and emotions that we cannot always explain. We no longer know who we are, why the unexpected is happening and what to do about it. There is a powerful force that seems to take over what we thought we wanted and steers us in a totally unexpected direction.
The Root of Change
Sherrie Dillard shares some advice on how to handle the changes and emotions that surface.
Keep the focus on you and your process. As tempting as it is to blame or become preoccupied with outer events and other people, what is happening is about you. People and circumstances come along when we are ready for change.
When we need a wake up call our soul creates the perfect experience to get our attention. Conditions will right themselves as you accept your lessons, evolve and transform.
Take time for yourself. Instead of trying to figure out what you may not yet be able to understand, accept your confusion and give yourself some time.
If you do not know what to do, do not do anything. You may need solitude to listen within and re-connect with your inner self.
Give it your all and remember that choosing the safe sure thing does not necessarily mean that you will be happy, successful or better off. You cannot control outcomes, but you can choose to participate in what brings you joy and what feels right for you.
Hope sharing this helps someone out there 🙂
