“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breath, trust, let go and see what happens.” ~ Mandy Hale
I started out knowing exactly what I wanted to write for this week of February Love last week it was Spend Time With Your Dreams and this week it was going to be – clearing space. Yes, that’s what I planned, (so I thought) I even had a rough draft ready but as the days slipped out from under me it just wasn’t happening. I couldn’t get myself to read what I wrote, I didn’t feel it, I didn’t know how to write it, I kept on procrastinating every day and I couldn’t approach it, it was stuck inside me and I couldn’t get to it. It was feeling more like a burden than a joy, and I started to tell myself all the negative stuff that doesn’t serve me. Everyday that passed I got more frustrated and stressed at not being able to write it.
In all of this I forgot to have some self compassion for myself and give myself a break. Instead of stressing over this, beating myself up and berating myself, I needed to remember that every day cannot be the same, and sometimes the plans that we have so carefully and thoughtfully laid out, are just not meant to be, they are not happening.
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ~ Buddha
I forget that there’s a Universal Force that is greater than me and always knows what is best for me and for all. Opening to this Universal Force is not always clear to me, I stumble and resist until I realize wait a minute, let me let go and let the Universe do it. Maybe writing about clearing space was not meant for now, someday but not now.
So last night I went to sleep trusting that the Universe will give me the perfect words. This morning I opened myself up to allowing what wants to be written to come through, and here I am writing about letting go, allowing Spirit to shine through. I’m reminding me and you about – compassion for yourself, giving yourself a break, letting go, know that you’re always supported by a loving force and allow the magic to happen.
The love for this week…
Give yourself some self compassion – give yourself a brake – instead of beating yourself up over not being able to do what you had planned – get out of the way and allow what wants to come through. Be conscious of the Universal Force that knows what is best and let it shine through you.
And I have to say that this feels really good and perfect as I am writing it.
What about you? Are you giving yourself a brake? What do you do to give yourself self compassion. Are you letting Spirit shine through you? Leave a comment and let us know, love to hear from you.
Sending you lots of love and blessings
