“Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished.” Lao Tzu..
This past year has been the most challenging year of growth. I know this to be true for others as well. Veils have been lifted. Relationships have changed. Vulnerability was a forced lesson. A literal stripping away of my life, thoughts, beliefs, identity, friends, family, and career path occurred. When this universal force of releasing all that did not belong on my souls path was finished I thought I would see light. I did, but still grey clouds hogged that light of freedom. I was then forced to practice surrendering. As one who embodies more masculine energy due to having to constantly thrive to survive independently, surrendering was unknown to me. Slowly, I embraced feminine energy of allowing myself to be nurtured, guided, respected, and simply taken care of. I not only surrendered to feminine energy, I surrendered to the universe. I always say faith and flow are your best friends but practicing both when life’s struggles get the best of you is hard. I also was forced to surrender to slowing down. My natural hustle hustle hustle mode was wearing me down and making me sick. I learned that surrendering to divine time and allowing myself to rest actually helped my goals become accomplished! It was the magical ingredient...
I invite you to practice surrendering. Allow yourself to be taken care of by the universe. Quiet your mind. Calm your actions. Just be. Just listen. Just trust.
