My life has changed fairly drastically as of late, and perhaps the most important lesson I’ve lear

My life has changed fairly drastically as of late, and perhaps the most important lesson I’ve learned through it all, is this:
Sometimes life doesn’t give you what you want, not because you don’t deserve it, but because you deserve more. 🙌🏻
.
It’s hard for me to trust the process, let alone surrender, because the truth is, I am a lover, but I’m also a fighter—especially when I feel strongly about something. 👊🏻
.
As much as I practice going with the flow, I still constantly find myself white-knuckling the reins and futilely trying to control different people and parts of my life—without realizing that the feeling of control is often only an illusion, and I never even had any in the first place. 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
All the better this way anyway. It’s in the moments, when I’m reminded that I can’t control, but must trust, that I find myself growing the most. 🌱
.
If you would have asked me 6 months ago where I’d be today, my answer would never have been where I am now. Most things would have been different, but that’s not how they happened. 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
Yet as I write this, I find myself living a life I had never expected, feeling passionate about the environment in ways I never have before, working harder than I’ve ever worked before (@findtap), but also enjoying my life more than I have in a long time. 🙌🏻🙏🏻
.
Plans for your life are only just that: plans…and I’m learning not to be so attached to how I think my life should or will look in the future. 😃
.
Here’s to trust. Here’s to holding the reins a little more loosely, and focusing on enjoying the ride instead. 💗
.
Do you go with the flow? Or do you white-knuckle the reins like me? 🙈
