Life is a series of ups and downs, ins and outs, the good and the bad, and so much more. You get the point. The thing about life is that so many people really believe that they have it ‘under control’. But life has this funny way of being unpredictable. It can throw you a curve ball and before you know it, you’re heading North when you thought you were going South.
There is a difference between having it under control and having it together. When they claim control they are not allowing for the good changes or all changes in general. People in control are often rigid and un-moving and thrown off course and angered greatly when something different is thrown their way. They live their lives planning for the future and always looking ahead at what should be done next and they never fully enjoy life.
People who have it together go with the flow. They can take life as it comes and enjoy the quality of daily moments as they happen. They live life one grateful day at a time. They are not perfect. But when something is thrown at them, they are not completely dismantled. They might veer a bit off but then they return to the driver’s seat. They realize life is unpredictable and will change and not everything stays the same. Life changes. Everything changes.
PS. The Universe gave me my husband. We lived in the same apartment building. I had no plans for another relationship. I had just hopped out of one and was fully content being a single mom. But, I was outside on the patio a lot talking to my neighbor and letting my son play. And I would see this handsome guy walk to the mailbox and back everyday. I noticed his patterns and I could not stop thinking about his smile. After a couple of months of this, I got brave, really brave, and went downstairs, in my t-shirt and ratty old shorts, knocked on the door, and asked to hang out. For those of you who know me, know that is something I normally would never do. But I feel the Universe intervened and gave me strength and bravery and I somehow knew that he was ‘the one.’ And he was. Life’s curve balls can really, really rule sometimes!
