I feel like lately I mean it more than ever.
It seems like especially because my husband and I were given an opportunity that we chose to pass up (in Arizona), I am really staring straight in the face the fact that I have to trust that things will all work out. I know I want to do that. I know I believe I am capable of doing that.
I still have issues with trust that linger a bit. But I'm not going to focus on that. I will focus on my desire to know in my heart that everything will work out better than I ever could have imagined and have a positive outlook on every day, even when things are frustrating. Even when I can't know where things are going.
Not knowing is not a place I have ever been comfortable with.
I think I have found a good constructive way to deal with my uneasiness. I might seem a bit simplistic, but... I have taken to thanking God and the universe for everything that comes my way, even the things that are not instantly positive. It has been amazing!
It turns out that:
In the moment, being grateful helps me to get through any anxious feelings. And as time passes, this process of finding something, anything to be thankful for helps my overall outlook. In an absolutely huge way.
It feels like even though I don't have any more control than I ever have, I do have control over how I react.
How about you? Whenever you face times of some sort of uncertainty, what are your tricks of the trade?
