FAITH MONTH: DAY 8: “The more you go with the flow of life and surrender the outcome to God, and the less you seek constant clarity, the more you will find that fabulous things start to show up in your life.”― Mandy Hale

Yeah…I like that this is how it works in my life. I used to have to arrange life to fit into my scheme, now I work to align my scheme to go with how life unfolds.

So much less fear, anxiety, dread, etc. SO MUCH LESS.

And drama seldom comes into it. Just does not need to. I have no agendas to push. Life unfolds for me as it does, and I have the resilience to roll with it. That is amazing and wonderful! Old man Ego jumps in and has something to say, and I can invite him most of the time to shut the F___ up. Isn’t that a nice shift?

Peace is with me almost all the time. I know the difference. It was so awful to feel that tug of war going on in my head and gut all the time. I do not miss it.

There is still a story line that tries to come up for me on any given day, and I can see it and let it pass on by. It may involve the weather not being what I would like it to be, or  something equally silly, but I can live with that silliness and not let it run the dialogue now. I am happy with that.

Lots of changes in the world around me, and they are not my business; nor are they keeping me awake at night. My life is small, and my part is too. That is a great way to live. In my lane, being God’s favorite kid. YAY!
