Day 20 #Happiness

This quote

“When you least expect it, something great will come along – something better than you ever planned for.  Mother Nature opens millions of flowers every day without forcing the buds.  Let this be a reminder not to force anything, but to simply give beautiful things enough love and an opportunity to grow naturally.”

How very true.

I’m one of those people who analyze the living hell out of things. Mostly myself, but still…it’s a lot of time, energy and synaptic firings that could definitely be put to better use elsewhere. I don’t so much force things as I try to understand the motivation behind them. Again, mostly I focus this on myself. My OCD has taken a perfectly natural desire to do my best; BE my best and run amok with it to what has been a lifelong battle with perfectionism.

“I should have known that”. “Why didn’t I see that coming”. Or the dreaded, “I did everything right and it still failed, wtf?”

But I have come to learn that if I don’t have all the answers now, it is because I don’t NEED them all right now. The point is just to chillax, learn, grow and trust the process.

Like all this stuff with my sudden affinity for color. I am hereby going to quit trying to figure out the why of it and just enjoy it. Who cares why…it’s fun, it’s upbeat and it’s certainly not hurting anyone.

I could not have foreseen, organized, planned or otherwise predicted that my life would be what it is today. That I would have become the woman I am today. And thank goodness, because frankly my life is  sooooooo much better than I could have ever imagined.

The point is not to “make it happen” or get it right, the point is to be willing to adapt and redefine yourself. And do it every day.

Trust the process…all of life is a process. Embrace it!
