So, having a plan IS a good idea, but when you’ve given it your best and done all that you can do – then it’s surrendering time! This is often the hardest part of the journey because we get so used to the illusion of control. It feels good to think that we can make all things happen though sheer will but, as I’m sure we can all attest, sometimes life throws us a curve-ball.
As a self-proclaimed “recovering perfectionist” I’ll admit that this is still a work in progress for me from time to time. But I’ve shifted my mindset to recapture that childhood enthusiasm of when we expected life to be an adventure.
And and adventure controlled isn’t a very good adventure, now is it?
So, show up and do the work – but then take a deep breath – and run happily into the unknown. Muster up your courage and take that leap of faith.
You never know for sure where you’ll end up – but at least you’ll have fun getting there!
