26 Aug Give up, Scars and Alternative
Nearly a yr in the past, on my 48th bday, I bought 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 lots to me. I do know now (and knew when it grew to become my phrase to dwell by) that surrendering is the one manner for me to dwell. The other of give up, to me, means to CONTROL and management is an phantasm.
Once we ‘strive’ to regulate issues, (circumstances, conditions, our our bodies, even folks) it units us up for disappointment, failure and unhappiness. 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 study to just accept that life occurs FOR us, not TO us, there are great items with that. Classes, development, peace, pleasure, connection, deep friendships to be discovered, and a lot success.
Once I lastly GOT that I needed it tattooed , on my RIGHT arm, PERMANENTLY in order that I’d be reminded of it each 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 carry.
I didn’t know that I’d 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 occurring however due to how I’ve SURRENDERED to all of it.
Life occurs FOR us to not us. It’s a alternative to take a look at it that manner.
