Trust Life, eh? Two very small words with very BIG energy.
I'm realizing more and more that the only way to really enjoy my life is to practice trusting it. Which in turn means trusting myself, trusting this moment and trusting all my relations.
It's enough to boggle the mind. But when practiced, it can make for a pretty joyful journey.
As I shared a few weeks ago, myself, Mr. Love and our adventurous dog Denver are currently on a journey from St. Louis, Missouri to Portland, Oregon.
Nothing like an epic road trip to provide countless opportunities to trust, right?
Right now, I'm sitting in a hotel room in Wyoming and borderline delirious from hours of driving, so I'm just going to give it to you straight. This is what is clear to me now.
Trust is a choice. And we always have a choice.
Now, I know we all have countless reasons from our past why trusting is risky business. We can replay a zillion times where we trusted with our hearts wide open and it didn't work out.
What trusting life is really about is choosing in THIS MOMENT to feel supported and guided by life itself.
In order to trust life, we have to surrender control. We've got to lean into life. We've got to constantly keep our egos from running rampant and we have to see what ever shows up in our lives as something or someone that is there for our greater good.
In other words, we've got to really feel on some level that this moment is perfect, we are connected to each other in ways we don't fully comprehend and that life is reflecting nothing but blessings for us.
I didn't say it was easy. But it does get easier with practice.
When we choose love, trust, compassion, magic, happiness, peace, gratitude (the list goes on), we can tell fear to take a hike.
You are a powerful creator and I'm just here to remind you of that. Your life is an amazing journey and there is only one of YOU that will ever exist.
May you trust in the unfoldment of this moment and all the moments to come.
