We must be willing to get rid of the life we planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. - Joseph Campbell
Every time I have ever read that quote, it takes my breath. We humans love to plan our lives, we figure if we plan them, we have control......what a joke. I think of all the energy and time I have spent through the years
planning the details of the life I wanted, and something always happened to take me down a different path....to the life that was waiting for me.
It is often a bitter pill to swallow, getting rid of the life we planned so we can have the one waiting. Tonight,
I sit and think of how different my life would be if the life I had planned had been the one I lived. Such a different place I would be, different friends, home, everything.......now I can't imagine how it would be.....I am so happy, so at peace with all that I am, all that I have.
I love my job, the way music and yoga have woven magic through my life, the people that send me their love and care every day, and this little cottage out in the middle of nowhere......where all things big and small come to visit and share their beauty. What a life that was waiting for me!
Tonight, if you have not found the life waiting for you, I pray you find it soon. It's there, I know it is, so claim it, and embrace it, and let go of the one you planned.
Good night, Sweet dreams.
