Im Slowly Learning To Just Let Things Be

Im learning not to force things to happen.

Im learning to just let them be, to let them align with my life when the time is right, to the let the universe bring them to me without having to run after them; because if you have to run after something, it means that it doesnt want to stand still, it doesnt want to be caught, it doesnt want to stop at your door. Im trusting God that whats meant for me will eventually find me no matter where I am. Im not going to be passive but I also wont fighta losing battle.

Im learning to let love find me.

Im learning to stop decoding messages and mixed signals and signs and wait for the clear message, the message that is so obvious and easy to understand, the message that doesnt make you question or second guess anything and the message that youre truly waiting for.

Im learning to let those who dont want me in their lives go, I might even hold the door open for them because I dont want temporary visitors anymore, I dont want to share my bed with someone who doesn’t want to spend every night with meand I wont share my heart with someone who doesn’t want to protect it. Im learning to let love find me when its real, when its simple, when its mutual and when its passionate.

Im learning to be patient with myself.

Im learning to take it easy on myself and my plans. Im learning to be kind to myself when I slip-up and patient enough to make my dreams come true. Im learning to forgive myself for my mistakes and let them be memories instead of labels. Im learning to let these mistakes prove that Ive tried for things that werent right for me, that I didnt always play it safe, that I went for things I was unsure of and that I took chances.

Im taking the wisdom I got from all these mistakes; the wisdom that taught me that mistakes often happen because we are forcing something that is not meant for us and we are trying to get something we probably shouldnt have.

Im learning to stop trying so hard to control my life.

Im learning that it is okay if I dont have all the answers or if Im not where I want to be. Im learning to let life take its course instead of trying to steer the wheel in another direction. Im learning that I wont always get what I but life will give me what I Im learning to treat life as a friend; trying to understand it, trying to love it when its being difficult, trying to accept it even when its frustrating me and trying to appreciate the experiences it has provided me with, the memories it gave me, the laughter it brought me and the sadness it put me through just to grow.

Im learning to let things be and Im learning to look at life as a person; a person who is also still trying to figure it out, a person who is flawed and a person who wants to be better on most days but falls short on other days like everyone else.

Im learning to let the force of life move me instead of forcing it to stop.
