“Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens.” By unknown

Well, here I am reflecting on these daily sayings and relating them to my experience. At the same time, I’m learning the benefits letting go and just enjoying the moments as they come. I wasn’t sure how much of a conflict this was and I admit I allowed myself to worry about the possible contradictions. For those of you who journal, you will probably relate to this: At some or several points in reflective journaling I find myself looking for stuff to write about, instead of letting it flow naturally. This controlling the flow always feels forced and inauthentic. It just feels bad. I have gradually improved my ability to let go, to quiet my mind, to not judge the random thoughts that come out of the silence, and to let them flow. This is exactly the process I’ve chosen to trust while doing these daily reflections. 

Many concepts are being repeated across different quotes and I choose to trust my Archangel oracle cards that very frequently remind me to find my truths in repeated messages. I guess that’s kind of an ironic prophecy, but I don’t want to judge. It feels better to believe, so I choose to feel better. I won’t lie to you; I feel some anxiety about letting go, but I’m aware of the possibility that this is yet another of my long practiced habits. Habits can be replaced. 

Another mantra keeps pushing its way into my thoughts: “Everything happens when it should.” I have been saying this to myself and others for what feels like a very long time. At first, I think I was just saying it and not fully feeling or understanding it. I’m still not sure I fully understand it, but I do feel it. It brings some relief to my anxiety and that feels good. I’m more open to just seeing what happens. 

What does this quote mean to you?
