Dear Worrying Girl,
None of us can know for sure how our day will end, let alone our whole life story. We can’t know every road that we will take, or every road that we will have to choose from. We can’t know what will show up, who will show up or when.
We can’t know. And yet we often live as if we should be able to know…and so we suffer when we don’t know. We worry.
What if we told ourselves the truth about this, every day? What if we said…
“I don’t know where this will end up, where I will end up…but today I am going to work toward how I HOPE it will end up….and I will trust that it will end up exactly as it should.”
Oh the pressure we could take off of ourselves if we allowed each day to be in and of itself, if we did the very best we could every day and then let it be enough….if we put our heads to our pillows and REALLY rested…knowing that tomorrow we have another shot.
Beautiful friend, you are not the only one who doesn’t know. You are not alone in this.
None of us know…we are all doing our best every day. We are happiest when we trust that when we show up and give life our best, that life will show up and give us what we need most to be able to grow into the people we are meant to become. Even the hard stuff, the confusing stuff and the stuff that hurts….all of it shapes us.
We are all going to be okay. Today as you do your best, remind yourself that it’s okay that you don’t know….and rest in the knowledge that it’s going to be okay anyway.
You are so very loved, beautiful soul….we are all in this together.
