Have you ever felt like something was missing from life? Even if you’ve been doing everything “right,” you still know there’s more to it but can’t seem to find whatever “it” is. Today, I had the light bulb go off. Even though I had been putting the pieces in place over the past year, the last piece of the puzzle has been laid down and now it all makes sense.
You know what’s been missing? Seriously missing from life? No, it’s not your phone. Or your possessions. Or your rules on how life should be. What you’re missing is your ability to surrender. You must surrender the need to be ruled by the rules. You must surrender the need to allow humanity to judge you. You must surrender the ego and individualism you have long fought to find to simply just Be.
Who are you? What is your purpose? Why were you created? What are you doing with this Breath of Life you have been given? This is not about measuring up or justifying your existence. This is a simple statement of Being. I am. That is all. I am! It’s simple and perfect. I AM!
Though I help my clients develop strategies to reach the goals they’re after, what I do is shift their awareness of who they are. When they are finally able to see that they are more than the roles they play, the attitudes and behaviors shift. They start living in alignment with who they were created to be. And the last crucial step is surrender. Have the faith that the rest will come. Have the gratitude for what Is, and see it all as a blessing.
When I did that for myself, my life shifted. I surrendered. I allowed myself to step back from worrying or having anxiety about anything because I fully surrendered my life to God. Today was the third time I have heard someone speak and use the term surrender, and it struck me that this word encompassed the miracle that happened in my life. By surrendering, I allow myself to just Be. I do not have to think or feel or do anything because I “should” do it. I simply allow myself to Be and all that comes is authentic. Nothing forced or fake. Simply genuine and pure. And you know what? It feels so good!
