Sometimes everything just works together for good. You know it when it's happening. You feel it all going your way. You're on a roll, completely expectant and not the least bit surprised when everything just works out as you planned. Those are the easy times, those are the times that we love to experience. But what about the days that start out, well, not so great? You know just what I mean, the days that begin on the wrong foot, the days that seem to take on a life of their own.....well, just flow with it. Seriously, one of the best things that can be done is to just relax and go with flow. A little trite sounding? Maybe, but surrendering to the moment holds tremendous insights and surprising outcomes. So, that day that seems to have a mind of it's own? Let it lead you to where it wants to take you. Can you trust that maybe things are on track? That maybe, just because it doesn't fit our agenda for the day, that maybe, just maybe there is a force at work that does know what you need? You never know when you are entertaining angels. If you are consistently putting your intention out there, if you have asked for guidance, or direction, and things seem to be going a different route.....then just go with it! There is great peace in letting go. There is great strength in staying open to the possibilities, and maybe just around the corner there is a whole new world waiting to open up for you. We can never really know where the twists and turns lead. I am living proof of this. Again and again I am astounded, and profoundly grateful, for the fact that I cannot foresee or predict my life. I couldn't possibly have imagined the good that has come my way, and on certain days, days when I thought everything had gone to hell in a hand basket, I found those days to be the most rewarding....if I stayed alert enough to really get myself out of the way.

There is a bigger plan at work in our lives. I know this as sure as I am sitting here typing as fast as my little brain can spew out my thoughts. Things that may seem like "bad luck" could very well be saving you from something far worse. I have found that in hindsight, when some time has gone by and we have loosened the hold we have on "outcome", we can see with crystal clarity that things really did work out for the best. A day in my life for instance, such as today, can start out rather trying.....(read that as being aggravated...a phone call, an email, something that threatened to destroy my peace).....and even as it spiraled out of my control, it all turned around by day's end. Inevitably there is person you meet, a "chance" encounter with someone, an offhand remark, a nagging thought that won't give you any peace until you acknowledge it, that can change the course of things in an instant. This happens all the time.

My life changed for the better today in series of fluke events, none of which upon waking this morning could I have even remotely predicted. My day was to go a certain way, it was planned, but everything else took over instead. What did I do? I went with it. I said, "Okay, let's see where this leads". And it lead me to a new job. And in the most perfect field I could have chosen. EVERYTHING clicked. The people involved, the timing, the right people being present at exactly the right time. EVERYTHING. I have been humbled once again. Now, let's see where this leads me. Let's see where this new job takes me.....surely there will be growth, and comfort zones will bust open (oh, those are the good times, when comfort zones are busted wide open). Will I be able to give up just a little bit more of my need to plan, to worry, to project outcomes? Yes. More and more I am learning that I can trust and relax....I'm going to roll with this. The high point of the day was when the person who hired me on the spot looked into my eyes and said, "We've been waiting for you". I nearly lost it right then and there. She saw in me what I was capable of. She saw in me the right qualities and qualifications that will bless us on both sides. BAM! Synchronicity. Love that.....

And it all happened today because everything, and I mean everything, got off to a "wrong" start! Or so I thought....

When life throws you a curve ball, don't panic. Maybe simply ask, "Where is this going to lead me"?....then trust you will be lead. And blessed. Giving up the personal timetable we sometimes have about when things "should" happen can be one of the most freeing things we can practice. You never know what guardians are indeed guarding you, guiding you, smiling upon you! Just as there is a power and a force that causes seasons to change, flowers to bloom, and embryos to become children, there is a force of nature at work in your life, and in due season. It's in a time and manner that nature and wildlife understand all too well, like when the sky is blue and the trees stand tall, then a storm blows in, they just bend and go with it. They ride it out to find when all has settled down, the landscape has been swept clean once again. Tap into that space.....and watch what happens. Flow.... love that.

Until next time....blessings upon your heart


  1. Once again, you have given us useful information. Practicing this would take much stress from us, and indeed, lead us down exciting paths we otherwise may miss.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Happy holiday!

  2. Thank you, Wild Magnolia! Happy Independence (from all that would hinder) Day!

  3. What is new job? This story sounded almost magical.


  4. Massage therapist....I'll be working side by side with three wonderful chiropractors. If it weren't for a series of misfortunate events that day I would have never found out about the position. It was all just "chance". Or, was it???? ;-)

  5. Sounded like synchronicity to me.

    I am a bundle of travel nerves for I am going to leave on Saturday for a week at the same place I went to last year: Chautauqua. I need to be open to possibilities beyond the narrow window worry provides.

  6. Once we can stop can happen in all it's wondrous forms. Have a grand time!!
