PATIENCE MONTH: DAY 25: “Keep Patience!! Life bestows the best when you ponder less about the things you desire.”― Aishwarya Sridhar

Yeah, much as this one sometimes pisses me off, it IS true. I have had this experience so many times in my many moves in life. I look and look and look for the perfect next home and/or job. I make myself silly with all my many plans and schemes and ideas…THEN! I get discouraged and tell myself to give up…THEN! I quit running the Universe…THEN! BOOM! IT happens! The perfect IT falls into my lap and I just laugh and laugh and laugh.

Of course…I forgot…AGAIN! That I am not in charge and that the Universe will provide what I most need and in its own time…not Kelly’s.

Oh yeah!

Every time. There is nothing else to say. I am usually willing something to happen so I can run away from something else. The very minute that I shift into acceptance and begin to clear up the thing I am trying to avoid, life hands me the REAL solution I need. Oh  yeah!

I am not a big fan of this, I must say. It usually pisses me off, BUT I will say that this constant process is the reason I have the faith and respect that I have for the Power that I turn my life over to. It is consistent and true and never fails to provide for my highest and best. Never. I sell myself short all the time and want only the quick fix.

So when I get restless and bored and want to shift things up a bit…I remember who is really in charge and how that usually works so well. And I am content (with a bit of grumbling) to sit still and wait for the Universal Power to show me the next indicated step to take. It really works!

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
