Day 39: Getting Comfortable With the Unknown

Dear Universe,

I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. I can’t predict the future. I know worrying, anticipating, and putting energy in what I think should happen puts a lot of pressure on me. That doesn’t fill me with loving energy, that fills me with fear. What I can do is control the energy I put into this moment. I can get comfortable with the unknown because I’m choosing to make this moment count. I’m holding myself accountable for my feelings, thoughts, beliefs, actions, and reactions that I am experiencing now. By doing this, I can put my best energy forward. I don’t I have the power to change the unknown future by taking my energy out of today. It’s what I do today that matters.

I know that anything I experience is for a reason. If I don’t want to set myself up to fight reality I don’t have to put pressure on myself to work for an unknown future. I can work for the life I want right now in this moment. I can make sure I’m using my energy wisely to make choices that create a loving energy within and around me. I can focus my energy on being accepting of what is and what my energy has created so far. Living in acceptance of my past, present, and unknown future widens my perspective to make healthier choices for myself, which in-turn is better for the people around me.

I’m getting comfortable with the unknown. I’m enjoying the fact that I don’t know. I’m here, right now. That is an incredible gift to be grateful for. I’m getting more and more accepting that when plans change, that it’s okay, because it all works out the way it is supposed to. I’m getting comfortable with making plans in a moments notice and seeing the blessings the adventures bring. I’m getting excited for the wrong turn when I find a scenic view that I never would have seen if I had stayed with my GPS. I’m learning to embrace the moment when things don’t go they way I thought they would. It’s just a reminder that nothing is set in stone and it opens me up to experience the unknown in a more present way. With a healthier energy my life will attract healthier people and situations.

The Law of Attraction works with the energy I’m focusing on, so my focus is on making sure I’m living the life I want to be living now. If there are things I don’t like, I have the power to change my perspective, remove myself from the situation, or stay in my darkness. The choice is mine. Today, I’m focusing on projecting my light on the unknown.

I no longer want to miss the life I’m living because my head is stuck in the past or the unknown future. My energy belongs in today, so I can enjoy the unknown with peace in my heart.

 

With Love and Gratitude,

 

A Better Me

Enjoying My Happily Ever Now

This year for my birthday I received a beautiful surprise, my boyfriend of almost three years took me ring shopping. Wait, I know where some of your heads are going, because most of the people I said this to went there too… this is about happily ever now, not happily ever after. We went from jewelry store to jewelry store looking for a ring that was right. Finally, in one jewelry store, I narrowed it down to two rings. I couldn’t decide. He told the salesmen, “We’ll take them both.” I thought about it, these are both ring finger rings. I’m the type of person who wears the same necklace for months and/or years; I don’t want to be switching out my rings. I needed to make sure that he’d be comfortable with me wearing the rings at the same time. I said cautiously, “That means one will have to go on my left ring finger.” Just like I guessed, it didn’t bother him, so graciously accepted both rings.

As I told people, of course they didn’t know if it was “the ring”, so reactions ranged from cautious to curious to say the least. People also didn’t know how I would feel about it not being “the ring”. I understood every reaction. They actually made me become aware of how I really felt about receiving my presents. The answer, I felt and feel great about it. I’m at a time in my life where I’m not looking for a fixed future; I’m completely submerged in my journey of the now. I love the adventure I’m on with my partner and in my life as a whole. Right now, I have no idea what any of my future looks like. I don’t know where my kids, career, or relationship will take me.

I wanted to come up with something if I was going to wear a ring on my left hand. Then it came to me, this is my Happily Ever Now Ring. Calling it this, encapsulates my joy in wearing the ring and in the moment I’m in.

As the saying goes, “We go where the wind takes us.” So, marriage and planning a future like that of marriage is just not where either of us are. I have never been more in love with a man. I fall deeper in love and respect for the person he is with every passing year. I know if the wind takes us away from each other, we will be there to support each other’s adventures.

When I get out of the now, I get stressed. If I start wondering about what the future holds; forget it!! I start doing self-sabotaging and my walls start to go up. When I stay present, I can see each moment and enjoy the process. Everything becomes about enjoying the experience. I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. I want to be open to the best that life has to offer for all of us. Today, by enjoying my happily ever now, I am doing just that.

With Love and Gratitude,
