I have been saying this a lot lately, but I am happier now then I have ever been. That is not to disregard my years prior, but I feel more comfortable in my own skin now. There is a sense that everything in my life has fallen into place. All the puzzle pieces magically fit. It certainly is interesting how the ebbs and flows of my journey has led me down a path that I didn’t plan. My plan obviously wasn’t as amazing as what God had planned for me.
You may be interested to know that writing was not on my agenda, let only writing for a major newspaper. When I compartmentalize my plans, I truly don’t open myself up for something bigger and better. That goes for just about everything in my life. The opportunities that have transpired along with unexpected blessings affirm that I have know idea what is in store for me.
Looking at each day like a kid on Christmas morning allows me to receive all the gifts that are waiting for me. The only obstacle in my life is mainly me. I can allow fear to block any feeling of contentment and overall well-being if I allow it. As I frantically maneuver to force a solution, it always ends up wasting endless energy and precious time. Treating life like riding on a lazy river not only invites a wide array of opportunities my way, but allow my Higher Power to do his job. Apparently, I like to micro manage.
