‘There is your plan and thenthere is the gods’ plan.’
I believe in that so strongly.Call it destiny or call it fate, I call it divine intervention. No matter who your higher power is, I believethere is a higher power out there, carefully coordinating those ‘chancemeetings’ and those coincidences that often change the course of our lives.
So often we lament not gettingwhat we wished for and even when we say ‘it happened for a reason’ we don’t saythose words with conviction, instead we say them to comfort ourselves and tohelp us move on from our disappointment.
But if we look at the keydefining moments of our lives and how we arrive at the point where that ‘perfectopportunity presented itself’, often the series of steps lead to those successful moments came about asa result of us changing course, unintentionally but rather because ofcircumstance.
When I am caught up in a momentof feeling ‘I want it so badly, but I don’t know how to go about it’ or when Ineed guidance and I feel like my inner compass is not working, I stop and I saythese words out loud; ‘I surrender all’ and I let it go. I stop right there andmake a commitment to stop trying to control the outcome and hand it over to thepowers that be. Whoever they might be.
Because sometimes that which youwant is not what’s best for you but because you want it so badly and youbelieve that it is what’s best for you, you fight with all your might to getwhat you want.
But sometimes it’s best to not fight to get it, it’s better tonot to try and get what you want, but to rather wait for what you were destined for.
