My recent move across the country has not only given me a beautiful home with a peaceful back yard but a reset of my priorities and sense of ease,self-assurance and finding space to overwhelm my soul with the things that bring me joy. It took great courage to pack up everything I own, say “goodbye til I see you again” to everyone I know and trust that there is something more for me with my life near my son. It took being brave in the face of ridicule and doubt, it took perseverance to endure in the middle of being tired and doing it alone, It took great strength to endure when I was afraid and wanted to change my mind. But here I am, on the other side.
In the middle of the “hard”, there lived a peaceful-joyful feeling deep, deep inside. And every problem that was in front of me was solved, every messy situation was cleared, every door was opened and with every step I took it got easier and simpler and happier. It kept working out. I now know I was supposed to be here. It all turned out well. It is well.
When I set my eyes on God’s will and not my own…. I remember this truth “You are my daughter whom I love; with whom I am well pleased.” Pleased not because of what I do, but because of who I am. I am relaxed in myself. There is no fast-paced life to run in, there is no keeping up with the neighbors, there is no comparison or competition or need to be better. I am already better. I am already beautiful and amazing and wonderful. I don’t have to prove anything. I get to Just Be. Living a simpler life in a slower community helps, bet the reset of ME is where it had to start ….choosing to reset.
