Life is a balance between what we can control and what we cannot. I am learning to live between effort and surrender. - Danielle Orner
I love that quote...but what I love more is finding the places that I am exerting too much effort, too much control and consciously letting go...surrendering.
2020 has been horrible in SO many ways....but through the hardships have also come a lot of positive things.
I’ve witnessed relationships form, develop and strengthen and ones that were unhealthy finally meet their end...giving everyone a chance at new beginnings.
I’ve seen new life come into the world, born to parents who have become more conscious, kind and aware.
I’ve noticed more people than ever sharing their lives with animal companions...appreciating and reciprocating their unconditional love.
I’ve witnessed people having a new appreciation for nature. Connecting with the earth and grounding more regularly.
And most of all I’ve witnessed people going inward, having no choice but to confront their need to control and subsequently learning how and when to surrender.
There is so much beauty in balance and perhaps our foundation needs to be shaken a bit to find it.
I hope you find balance in every bit of your life, but more importantly I hope you find the places that you can surrender and do it. Trust that even in darkness, despair and troubling times, you will find love, beauty and growth...if you allow yourself the chance.
