It's funny to me that whenever I need a certain push or quote, it appears, at exactly the right time. Right now I am in the middle of reading a great book by Eckhart Tolle called "A New Earth" (I will definitely be talking about it more extensively when I finish reading it!) and this book is almost completely overturning my world and changing the way I think. Because this book has put me in a place where I am very open to feeling and thinking new ways, things like this quote have a greater affect on me. I'm sure I have mentioned this before, but I have always been a planner, not being sure of something and of my future scared the crap out of me. I was always worried about where things were going and what was next that I would forget about the present, I would force things and not let things just happen. The past six months I have struggled with this, but this quote puts, very simply, exactly how I want to live.
"Never expect, never assume, never ask and never demand...." -It is always good to set goals for the future, but you can't just expect things out of life or out of other people. Let it/them surprise you a little bit. Who are you to expect and demand things of situations and other people? Let things happen and live in the present.
"Because if it is meant to be, it will happen.."-you say meant to be? really? Isn't that something we just throw around in fairytales with happy endings? I'm starting to think it's really life. The past few months I have just let my life happen (I do have my lapses), and for the first time in a long time I am enjoying moments that I couldnt before and things are going the way they are supposed to and at their own pace....try it.
Have a great day!
