Sometimes you feel like you’ve tried everything. Sometimes you have given it your all. What do you do when challenge arrives? YOU SURRENDER IT ALL. I used to think that surrendering was like giving up but it’s not the same at all. Surrendering means releasing the need to control the situation. Surrender means allowing a force and a power greater than you to take care of everything. Surrender means not trying to figure out the solution. Surrender means having faith that somehow it will all work itself out, even if I don’t know exactly how that will happen. Surrendering is very powerful and a tool that so many of us need to use more often in our lives. It is a sign of strength to be able to say “I don’t have the answer right now, so I’m going to just let it be for the time being”. Somehow by doing this it frees up the energy for a miraculous solution to appear. Often it is one you would never have thought of. Once you have surrendered the situation it is important not to dwell on it. Take your focus off it for a while and place your attention on something else that is more pleasurable to you for the time being.
We have all heard that LOVE is the greatest power in the Universe and I know that where there is GREAT LOVE there are also miracles. It is truly a miracle to be given the opportunity to experience GREAT LOVE. It is a miracle to hold the hand of your beloved and feel like you are home. It is a miracle to spend time with the person you love, seeing them smile, hearing them laugh and just sharing with each other. It is a miracle simply to just be in each other’s presence.
This week I encourage you to take a deep breath and just surrender it all. It actually feels really good to just let go and relax, trusting and knowing that everything is being taken care of.
My picture this week was literally served to me at one of my favorite Mediterranean restaurants. I have been going there for several years but this was a first…
