What if we had the capability to fast forward through life's challenges and take a peek at the ending?
If we knew the outcomes, we could make better decisions, make better choices and remain in control.
How cool would that be?
Or would it…
I have stared down life’s challenges many times, face to face, eye to eye and the hardest part of the situation was not having all the answers; not knowing which way to turn or which decision was the best.
Looking back, I realize those were the times I had the most personal growth.
If it were not for the gut wrenching, heart breaking, mentally exhausting challenges, I would not be who I am today.
There was freedom in realizing that I wasn’t perfect, that I didn’t have all the answers and that I had no idea how I was going to land on my feet.
The freedom to make mistakes, to fail and to find out what I was made of. The freedom to let go and trust my intuition, to believe in a higher power and most importantly, divine timing!
The freedom to truly live and grow!
Those were the times that blessed me with new opportunities, new surroundings and new acquaintances.
I can say without a doubt, I would not have the friends I do today; I would not have started a blog or an inspirational Facebook page, had I not emotionally touched those pieces of my life’s puzzle.
I am so grateful for the challenges and the uncertainties because they contributed to the richness of my life as it is today!
If you are having challenges and need a little help trusting the process and accepting the fact that this is exactly where you need to be to grow, I have provided a tapping script to help calm nerves and ease emotional turmoil.
If you are new to this blog and unfamiliar with the tapping process, please see the "introduction to tapping" link at the top of this page. It will provide you with everything you need to know!
As always, please change the words to fit your current situation
Karate chop point:
"Even though I have no idea what’s going to happen, I love and accept myself anyway”
"Even though I don’t have answers, I love who I am ”
