Letting go and accepting change can be a difficult construct and come to terms with. Many people have a hard time accepting change around them. Either they are stuck in the past, unwilling to let go or are in the present but fighting changes that are looming around them. Learning to live in the present and to enjoy life as it comes is an art that can overwhelm many but it can also bring peace, joy and harmony.
I was sent a copy of a letter that an older woman had written to her 30 year old self and the letter was filled with a lot of sincere treasure and wisdom. Among the issues she outlined; life is short, every person matters, you can be focused on the mission and be fun in the process, life will hurt, wounds will heal, forgiveness is your best friend, the best leaders are good followers, invest more in people behind you than in yourself, generosity is contagious, trust your intuition, that’s the Creator’s compass, and finally, you’ll be remembered for your smile. This is beautiful.
Learn to enjoy life as you go. Be willing to accommodate different opinions and viewpoints on life. Be flexible and willing to forgive those who offend you. Be aware of the seasons and times and be sure to be ahead of the curve. Should you find yourself trailing behind, be willing to be led back on to the right track.
Do not imagine for a moment, you are all knowing. Keep your eyes and ears open; seek to be guided at all times. Provide the leadership that’s needed to steer your family & team in the direction that calls. Be daring and exploratory. Though it is safe to dwell in your comfort zone, be willing to step out every so often and have an accountability partner to help you see that through.
There is nothing new under the sun; whatever is there has been, and whatever will be, has been there already. There is therefore nothing better for a man to do, than to eat, drink and enjoy satisfaction all the days of his life. Therefore be willing to move with the times.
