Happy YOU Year!

Monday, January 2, 2012

Going into 2012, I was a mess. I felt like I was leaving my dad behind. I spent all week prior to New Year's Eve in a state of panic. Trying to get a grasp on time, which of course we all know is impossible. It did not help that the week was going by so fast. But I got through it and honestly, I felt like my dad spoke to me a few times through other people. I usually dream of him but I have been sick and with being sick, I have not been sleeping well. So I guess he felt like he had to make sure he got his point across and had my attention, lol.

I had 3 separate conversations with 3 different people but it all had the same message: Acceptance. Acceptance of things I cannot change. Acceptance of people and how they are. Ultimately, once you accept these things and people, you can then make the choice if you want these things and people in your life. Imagine if we all embraced this way of life? There would be less expectations and less disappointments. We'd appreciate the little things in life. We'd be able to see all of life's exciting things because our focus won't be on those people and things that hurt us and disappoint us. We spend so much energy worrying about these people and things and let it affect us negatively.

But if we accept and move on, life would indeed be easier. Now it is easier said than done. But if you can do it, the benefits are so great. I've decided to focus more on me this year. I have decided to stop worrying about THOSE people. I've decided to accept what I can't control and make the choice on who and what I want in my life. That's what being fearless is all about.

Thank you, Daddy, for always dropping the knowledge even from beyond. Love you.
