We try to control everything in our life. Control is simply an illusion. Life will flow how it will.
We want things to go a certain way so badly and we think we have to ‘fight tooth and nail’ in order to have things be the way we want them to be.
However, sometimes when you try so hard for something and fight against the current, you are pushing away the very thing that you want!
Think of surrendering as a gentle approach to obtaining the life you want.
If you are unsure of what it is that you want, surrendering gives you the space to figure that out without the fear and judgment that can crowd your mind.
Picture a leaf gently falling from a tree limb and gracefully floating to the ground. No struggle and at peace. This is what it means to surrender.
We believe we have to hold on so tightly to everything. Whether it be that perfect relationship, that amazing career, financial abundance, or friendships.
Most of this pressure now comes from social media facades of the ‘perfect life.’
If deep down we don’t believe good things in life can come easily for us, we tend to fight harder for those things.
When you fight hard for something, you send out the energy of scarcity.
Therefore, trying too hard for something, at times, can make it more difficult to obtain.
