Are you free enough to let your life be a mess; to release your shadow so it can invite in more light?
If so, now play; and watch how the beauty unfolds. Oh man! This is good stuff!
But what does this mean?
Let all those you encounter leave happier and better than they were before..... I really love this, I think it is really important to love freely and let life unfold.
“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, ..."
The examples go on and on. Sitting with uncertainty is hard, it is to always being in the here and now. We only have this moment. Think about it. Tomorrow does not matter. The miracle of life exists right now.
To follow this concept, just pull all of your thoughts together. I live for this moment. Right now is what I have. All is incredibly well and nothing else matters. Keep thinking that. The thought process changes you after awhile. You stop worrying. You stop thinking about things you do not have. You stop concerning yourself with the news and drama in the world and only do each moment of every day exactly what you want to do in life.
Every moment, every day. It will all be gone soon enough, enjoy it. Enjoy right now.

Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
