When life puts you through a blender

My favourite problems are the ones where there are absolutely zero solutions in sight. As in: you are freakin stuck.

The heart is shrivelled and the brain is dead. You are stressed, hopeless and thinking what the hell is going on and what are you going to do. In these moments I love what transpires.

I distance myself from this hopeless mess and sit still for a while. In these dark moments we can uncover our true inner power, if we choose to. What I mean is asking ourselves this:

“Now that I have been tosses in this disastrous moment, what will I choose?”

Here is where we can decide what we are made of. We can get lost in the darkness or listen to our gut, surrender to the universe and carry ourselves towards the light.

Or do something absolutely outrageous… Trust, Believe and Keep our Minds Open.

I was faced with a really exponential twisted situation at the start of 2021. I was wondering where all my mojo went. But then slowly, one choice at a time I got it back.

It happened little by little.
Moment by moment.
One tiny choice at a time.

I gathered what I felt and moved towards what was best for me. Don’t let the potential of a situation cloud the reality in front of you.

Just see if you can gently swim towards these three choices: Trust, keep an open mind and believe.
