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! :)
