In life we tend to try to control circumstances or outcomes. I know I am very guilty of trying to control situations to get the desired results. But the reality in my mind, the results are destined regardless of my desires.
It has been about a month now that I have faithfully been journaling what I am grateful for each day and my answered prayers and my current prayers. By doing this I have come to realize that as much as I want to control my destiny, this life journey I am on is all about the ride.
I am learning to let go of control and hold on to the beauty of my journey. This change has brought so much more joy and peace into my life, just by reflecting on the little things that I have to be grateful for each day. Being a work at home mom, the days can start to run together and become very routine. But sitting down and thinking about the cuddles, games played, lessons learned, new words, new experiences. Those things are the reason I chose this path. They are the reasons that I love this journey.
I know a lot of people have seen the Facebook posts about Joey and Rory Feek. Joey lost her battle with cancer and leaves behind a young daughter. I won’t get into the details because it brings me to tears when I read or talk about it. But it reminds me of the beauty in each day and especially each day with our children… its priceless.
So if its destiny or part of my journey that brings me to where I am each day, I will take it… embrace it… make the best of any bad situations and most importantly show love in all I do.
