No matter what religion you subscribe to, we can all use a lesson in letting go. Letting go of expectation and control truly HAD to happen for me. This blog post is all about how to let go and let god.
1. Trust Others. While I was in the hospital, I had no choice but to trust the nurses and doctors. Now, I trust God, my therapists and family. Trust is a very sacred gift to give someone, but it usually won’t let you down.
2. Find Your Version of God.
I understand that most people have different opinions on God, but if you can trust that there is something bigger than you, it’s easier to let go of control.
3. Expectation begets Disappointment. Keep hope, but don’t expect things to happen. For example… I expected to be completely well within a year, but that didn’t happen for me. I ended up very disappointed. I also expected my dad to wake up from his coma, but again… didn’t happen. I ended up disappointed. These are just my experiences with expectation and disappointment. I understand that it’s hard to keep hope without expectation, but you can find a way to separate them.
This post was derived by my very personal experience. Everyone has different experiences and I would love to hear stories about how y’all released control of your lives. ☀️🙏❤️
Stephanie, since a lot of your disappointments are shared by me, I understand your feelings. I’m getting pretty good at starting each day with a willingness to let God have it and move me the direction I need to go. I think it just starts with the recognition that there’s someone else that knows what we are destined to do each day for the betterment of our lives here (or in the next life.) I just give it up to God every single day. 💕
You are a great example of this, Denise 💖🙏
