I have a habit of freaking out about things I can't control. It's not one of my better qualities, but I've been working on it.
A few years ago I started meditating. When I'm dicisplined enough to meditate regularly, it's much easier to surrender the unknown.
Sometimes when things around me are running smoothly, I get cocky and skip the daily meditations. Big mistake.
Just when I think I have everything under control, the minutae of life becomes completely overwhelming. It makes me want to scream or hide or lay around in my red, velour comfy pants all day and eat ice cream. (Yes, I have velour pants.) To be honest, I'm not exactly sure how any of those things would help me, but in the moment, throwing in the towel feels like the perfect choice.
When I take the time to be still, a solution is always revealed: a lesson is brought to my attention, a request to be of service to a friend is made, encouragement is provided or I'm reminded of what I have to be grateful for.
Today's revelation: Trust and wait for the miracle the Universe has in store.
You can't get any better than that!
