Have you ever had an idea in your head about your life?
It doesn’t go the way you planned?
I thought for sure I would be married to the same guy forever and live happily ever after.
I just knew one day we we’re going to create the family that neither one of us had growing up.
And I believed with all my heart that I was exactly where I was supposed to be.
The idea in my mind and the feelings in my heart no longer matched each other.
It was as though my heart was saying no no no and my head was saying yes yes yes.
Have you ever had a disconnect between the 2?
If you answered yes then congratulations your normal!
But which one should you listen to?
The ideas in your mind come from fears and unmet expectations.
The feeling in your gut comes from a deeper place with a more intrinsic connection.
It’s related to our intuition, which is often times pushed aside or ignored all together.
We want to learn how to live from a place of love instead of a place of lack.
The ideas in my head were wrong on so many levels. The stories I told myself to avoid my heart weren’t even true. They just helped me avoid the inevitable which is where I am right now.
Maybe your life’s not going as you planned and that’s ok because Gods plan is always better then my plan.
We think we’re in control and that we have it all worked out but then God comes along and says no way sister, that’s not how this story ends.
Learn to live in the NOW and the future and the past can’t touch you. Every single time I feel myself becoming overwhelmed I know that I’m stuck in my mind.
As soon as I feel the dread or the anxiety begin to seize my body I remind myself of what’s happening, and I’m able to take a breath and let it pass through me.
Maybe your ideas are no where big enough for the blessings that are in store for you! (That’s the story I’m sticking with today)
I’m open to receive the blessings and the love I give so freely.
May we all learn the idea in our head is just a story that holds zero power over us and may we learn to show up day after day no matter what life brings our way.
