There are things you can control and there are things you can’t.
You can do your part – whatever that is and then you can fold your arms, sit back and wait for the universe to respond. After you do your part, you gotta release control. It’s crazy making to do anything other than simply relax because there is literally nothing else you can do but wait for the response.
The response may not always be what you like it to be. Because in your small mind you think things need to work out a certain way, in a certain time frame.
The wild fact is we forget that we live in a massive reality with so many moving parts it’s actually mind blowing.
THINK ABOUT IT DUDE, we are in a huge planet spinning in a galaxy surrounded by other huge planets. But forget those other planets for now and let’s just zoom into our own.
Think about everything that is happening right now simultaneously as you unfold. Think about the people in Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, North America, Australia – and okay, I guess Antarctica.
Think about all the animals, all the insects, all the plants, all the mystery underneath the ocean.
There is a massive amount of movement going on around us ALL THE TIME.
Within all this commotion we zoom to YOU. To your story. To your particular life within your particular family, friends, circumstances.
And then there is that thing you really want – the health, the relationships, the finances, the career, the house, the pumpkin spiced latte.
And you want it now.
And guess what? Although there are no guarantees in life, because you can literally just die today and there goes everything — when you do your part, you will get yourself closer to everything you want.
It may not happen the way you want. It may not happen in your time frame. It may not look exactly as you pictured it – but it will happen if you keep doing your part and release control when your part is done.
And hey, sometimes things do happen exactly how you want them to. Sometimes you ask for a raise and you get it. Sometimes you apply for the job and you get it. Sometimes you ask out the cutie from the office on a date and she says “Yes.”
Hooray! Sometimes it works just as you want it, when you want it.
But sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it takes time. Sometimes it’s 10x more challenging than you dared even imagined.
This is when you do what you gotta do and then you cross your arms and wait for the response. The more time unfolds before you, the more data you will receive to know how to proceed forward and adjust accordingly.
So release control.
Control what you can and what you can’t just breathe, chill, and enjoy the ride.
Life doesn’t have to be some serious fucking project we have to make a huge deal out of. It can be easy. It can be fun. If you let it.
So let it and release control.
