Know Everything There

Is To Be Known

Think about this . . .

Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail

of a bridge and lean over to watch the river

slipping slowly away beneath you,

you will suddenly know everything there is to be known. ~Winnie the Pooh

Sometimes stillness is BEST in being where you are and not about thinking where you should be! I remember my grandma telling me to be patient, but I usually was in too big of a hurry to listen let alone understand what she meant. I remember wanting things to happen faster and wanting to just go, go, go. I was tired of waiting, especially when I felt like I did everything right and there still was no results for my efforts!

I get it now grandma! I CANNOT dictate how, when and what I want to have happen in my life. I am learning that control comes from being able to make decisions and choices in living the life I truly want! I really need to just slow down and let things happen on there own time.

That is not necessarily easy, especially with technology and pretty much anything and everything I want or need is right at my fingertips for the taking. Basically if you want something you pretty much can get it!

That way of thinking leads to setting high expectations and gaining misconceptions as well as losing perspective at times! Would I like ultimate control in living my life? Well let me think, YES! However, that is not going to happen because there is really no such thing as having ultimate control. I think it would be more of a burden and not really healthy for my whole being either!

I am not going to get what I want, especially when I want it right then and there! If I take a really good look I already have all that I need and sometimes it is literally staring me in the face. Do I want more? Of course I DO! I want more of what I already have and to take the time to experience the process more.

If I get too greedy or impatient, I usually have life take me down a bit and sometimes it is a smack down! That is okay though because it really puts my life into perspective and reminds me to reflect on the way I have been thinking. It is my version of a wake up call! A reminder to be a little more humble when it comes to appreciating and being grateful for what I do have in my life.

I do want to be available, open and ready to take action when the time comes! I am a work in progress when it comes to having patience. I am trying to be more and just not keep moving onto the next thing until something better comes along. I need to remind myself to experience it ALL because sometimes life happens when you least expect it and it may be more than you could ever imagine too!
