26 Aug Give up, Scars and Alternative
Nearly a 12 months in the past, on my 48th bday, I received the phrase “give up” tattooed on my proper arm. It was my first and ONLY tattoo. I needed that phrase as a result of it means quite a bit to me. I do know now (and knew when it grew to become my phrase to stay by) that surrendering is the one approach for me to stay. The other of give up, to me, means to CONTROL and management is an phantasm.
Once we ‘attempt’ to manage issues, (circumstances, conditions, our our bodies, even individuals) it units us up for disappointment, failure and disappointment. We waste time chasing an phantasm. And dang I lived in “management” for 48 years.
Once we let go of that management, keep current and be taught to simply accept that life occurs FOR us, not TO us, there are large items with that. Classes, development, peace, pleasure, connection, deep friendships to be discovered, and a lot achievement.
After I lastly GOT that I needed it tattooed , on my RIGHT arm, PERMANENTLY in order that I’d be reminded of it day by day.
Little did I do know that day getting that tattoo that scars would additionally line that arm as a deep reminder later.
I didn’t know then what 2020 would deliver.
I didn’t know that I might have the accident and accidents that I had now
I didn’t know that there can be so many huge shifts in so many areas
However the phrase… give up has continued to serve me properly.
I can confidentially say that 2020 has been nothing however blessings to me . Not due to what has occurred or what is going on however due to how I’ve SURRENDERED to all of it.
Life occurs FOR us to not us. It’s a alternative to have a look at it that approach.
