Day 2 – Everything’s Gonna Be Alright

Apparently, Bob Marley is a pretty smart guy.  Who knew it was the simplest things in life that always bring about a genuine smile.  He reminds us to not worry about a thing because ‘every little thing is gonna be alright’!  I love it.  Tonight I visited with a friend who is going through a rough break up at the moment.  It was eye opening sitting on the other side, being the listener.  One year ago, almost to the day, I was on the other side.  I was the one in between tears throwing out the “what if’s” and “what nows” and “how am I going to do this?”.  That was me.  But tonight, I was listening with eyes of excitement.  I was literally so happy for her.  So much, SO MUCH, is possible!

When our heads are in the fog, when are minds are consumed with the whats, whens, hows, whys, doubts, and our hearts are full of fear – THIS is the time when colors come to life.  When the grey which consumes are mind is actually covering unlimited possibilities and an abundance of potential.  I saw this tonight.  I am so happy for her at this moment because she gets a chance to be reminded of the excitement that lies within the unknown.  I’ve forgotten about this.  I have been slightly consumed with worrying about what’s next in life.  Instead, tonight I am reminded that the unknown times are some of the most inspiring and exciting times.  Think of all of the things that are possible when nothing is lined out in front of you?!  You get to paint all the curvy lines your heart desires on your life canvas!

Up until 2 days ago, I was almost one hundred percent sure I’d be Nursing in July on a ward I knew I could help make a big difference on, and that I would love. Unfortunately, the Nursing hiring freeze in BC right now prevails, and this won’t be the case.  I was set back just a bit for a day or two, but then reminded myself to just let it go.  To let go of he attachment (that wasn’t actually there in the first place).  I started to think once again outside the box.  How creative can I get right now?!!  As soon as I let go, and turned my worries into excitement, well that’s what started coming my way.  Out of the box opportunities and possibilities, along with a side of creative ideas.  It’s funny how blind we become when we’re so set on something.  What a breath of fresh air to have that ‘one thing’, that one attachment be taken away.  What a beautiful reminder.  I’m not sure where I’m going, but what I do know is that Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.

Let go of your attachments.  In reality, we aren’t attached to anything.  It’s all in our minds.  Let go of your worry’s.  They don’t do much besides bring you down.  They aren’t allowing you to see the bright and unlimited colours of opportunity in front of you.  And really?  Life is gonna happen whether or not we worry about how it’s gonna happen, so you might as well get in the game and become excited about it!  Life is happening right now, just by doing nothing.  Let go, and enjoy it!

Smile with your heart!

I’ll have more fun pictures this weekend – I am finally feeling almost fully energized again to have a little more fun (finally!).  And you’ll never guess what I made a trip to the market for at work yesterday – I was craving a banana!!  The cookie cravings are starting to disappear and I can feel my energy is becoming more healthy, real and constant – yahooooO!  Have a great weekend – see you Sunday! :)

  1. Thank you for the reminder today, Jenn. I’m struggling with attachment these days– attachment to ideas, goals, and dreams, but have lost sight of NOW. I just graduated and have the whole world ahead of me! A big, empty canvas just waiting for me to cover, but I’ve been so distracted by the “I need a job!” frenzy that comes with graduation. You reminded me that its OKAY not to know what’s coming next and to embrace this time of my life that is bursting with opportunity! Shine on, friend!

  2. Jenn,
    Wow did this post ever hit home! I have been reading your blog for a few months now and I absolutley LOVE it!! I decided to start the not so dirty 30 day challenge on the 1st too :) I am a super huge fan of anything sweet so I’m curious to see where this takes me, so far I’m really enjoying it. I made the spaghetti squash and beef casserole and apple crumble without the crumble in your recipes last night and even my husband loved it! Thanks for all the inspiration, I don’t know you, but I think you are an amazing woman who is destined for greatness :) cheers

    • That’s awesome you’re trying it!! Glad you guys liked the recipes too! I’m over 3 weeks now of no sugar, and I’m shocked at how little I’m craving it lately. I think it was the 2 week mark that was huge – you can do it!!! I’d love to hear how it goes!!!

  3. lol nice Jen! Actually, bananas have become my fav. fruit of this summer. I have been eating it everyday for a month now and I put a bunch of it almost everywhere, from my room to kitchen to my desk at work. That way I’m less driven to eat chips or chocolates or candy because it is just so easy to peel! :P

  4. sweet entry. reading your blog all the way here in costa rica! always a good read!

  5. Thanks hun!!! you help me to become stronger everyday and that night you guys helped me to see a whole new light. I love you<3
