Trust

trusttheprocess
If you follow my Facebook or Twitter page, you’ll probably have noticed that I tend to post a lot of inspiring and positive articles, images and quotes. Just like the intention of this blog, I post them as much as a reminder to others as to myself.

My last post asked you how you deal with stress and all that life hands us. There are many things one can do to create a balance, but the truth is, I already know the main solution… and that is to trust the process; trust that the Universe knows what it’s doing, because it does.

This is easier said than done. We’re taught from a young age that we must have control and power over everything in our lives, but the moment we lose the tiniest bit of control, it feels like the end of the world. But we never had that control in the first place. There are times that life seems to flow and everything works out one thing right after another, but society has taught us to always want more and never be completely satisfied. So we worry and we doubt. We resist change rather than accepting and working with it. We tell the Universe (or God/your belief) “I got this!” and try and take control which only throws a curveball into what is already so nicely laid out for us.

My theory is that “worry causes reason to worry”. The more we worry, the bigger of a build-up we get of things we have to worry about. I’ve been writing this post off-and-on for a few days now, feeling a bit like a hypocrite. One moment I trust, but if I don’t get an immediate response that things are working out how I want them to, I get anxious and worry. But even if I need that reminder that things will be okay and to just enjoy the moment and trust the Universe; even if it’s a constant cycle from worry to calm and content, at least it’s a cycle and I’m getting somewhere.

The next time you’re worrying, take a deep breath and trust the process.

I have become a worrier through the years. I don’t know if it comes with having a family and more people to take care of (and worry about) but whatever it is, it still not a good way to go.

I have done a lot of introspective work recently and have found a lot more peace in my everyday life – sometimes simply being willing to let go of a bit of control, while at the same time taking responsibility for things we can actually affect the outcome of… I think it’s a much better way to go!

Nice post, Eva!

Elisa – Thank you so much for reading and commenting! Letting go is something I’ve been practicing in my meditation (http://fourleafcloverblog.com/?p=3524) for a while now. Life is meant to be enjoyed and we let our thoughts get in the way of that happiness. It’s so nice to see so much information about this online lately, this is a trend I’m all for! :)
