So apparently Google doesn’t think there’s enough change going on in my life, so they’ve decided to do away with Google Reader (GR) as of July 1st. I’m sure that Bloglovin is thrilled about this. If you’re a Google Reader user and not familiar with Bloglovin, it’s the next best thing. They’re welcoming GR users with welcome arms and you can easily import your blog list from GR without breaking a sweat. You can follow All the Many Layers here.
Now that we have the housekeeping out of the way, let’s talk about this week's Simple Freedom. I have amazing news to share with you. I've made a huge, epic decision that will change the course of my life from here on out. Can you guess what it is?
I've decided to expect everything to go well and to only think about what I DO want to happen instead of what I DON'T want to happen.
Do you ever really stop to think about how much time you spend thinking about what you don't want to happen? And then putting yourself through all the suffering before the bad things even happen? After years and years of doing this, we create a mindset where we're afraid to be too happy for fear that something is waiting around the corner to knock us down.
But what if we made the conscious shift to thinking that everything will go well no matter what?
No matter if everything goes exactly according to our plan or not.
No matter if we have to unlearn all the ideas we have about how things are supposed to happen and allow for the Universe to do its thing.
No matter if we have to be patient and uncertain at times. Sometimes for long times.
No matter if everything seems to be stacking up against us.
No matter if we have to start thinking about mistakes and failures as good things because they are teaching us what we need to know.
It's all about the flow now. It's all about the ride. Try this with me. Things won't bother you so much. There won't be any more monsters around every corner. The things you need to learn and step up to and overcome will seem less scary because you will approach them with confidence, knowing that you will ultimately be successful. Who's coming with me? Let's go!
As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit. ~Emmanuel
