Acceptance & Transcendence: Overcoming the Unknown

Know this, there will be times in life when we just won't understand another person's behavior. We'll struggle with it, we'll grasp at straws trying to make sense of it, and we'll talk about it with everyone in our circle trying to figure it out but we still won't understand it. The reality is that there are some situations in life we are not supposed to understand, we're just supposed to overcome them. Please remember this the next time someone or something outside of yourself blind sides you with perplexing actions or behavior. Let their journey be theirs and keep moving forward on yours. You really don't have to understand it to overcome it.  I know that's hard to accept at first but it is true.

You also owe it to yourself to not beat yourself up for the 'time wasted' on a person, place or thing along the journey. Out of every experience comes knowledge and lessons. Let go of the time lost, let go of the expectations you had that didn't come to pass, let go of that which did not happen and let go of giving yourself grief for any or all of the above. Take the lesson(s) and move forward.  Allow yourself to come back and be present in today.  This is the moment you have and now is the only time that matters.  Believe in your journey and go towards the path that serves our authentic self.

As you go forward don't forget to question your method of life.  Be present in your choices. What are you choosing? What thoughts are you putting out there? Review, reflect and rejoice. Again, it's your journey and you deserve to experience happiness, love, triumph and transcendence over that which is not serving your time here. Lift up yourself and just Today is that day and now is that time. You're not alone, we've all been there at some point or another. It's okay, it will serve a greater good within yourself sooner or later, so go ahead, choose your path and go.
