NOTES FROM THE AWARENESS: 478

Embrace what the day brings.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

We may plan our days or hope specific things will come to pass. Often our days work out differently than wished. This can leave us struggling to steer events back into the desired direction. We may also feel resentful and distracted by what we see as interruptions.

The more we resist the unexpected, the more of our energy and focus it consumes. Our reactions can prevent our plans from proceeding as much as the detours themselves. In acknowledging and unemotionally handling the distractions, we free ourselves to proceed with our desired activities.

Today’s message invites me to accept what comes, deal with it, and keep focused on what I want. Intervening events don’t sidetrack my intentions unless I permit them to. The unexpected may also bring me unanticipated benefits, including the opportunity to assess and reflect. Going with the flow, I am able to find more that brings me happiness.

How about you? How do you feel about the unplanned?
