Do you ever feel so alone and utterly lost?

Sometimes I have felt so lost and no amount of praying, crying, pleading helped. There have been times, to this day, I just don’t know why something happened and why I had to experience it the way I did.

However, I know in my heart that there is a bigger picture, a larger picture I cannot see at this time. The best thing I can do is stay present, look at what IS, in this moment, and do the best I can. Self hatred, doubt, creates more feelings of insecurity. Instead, declare ” I am doing my best and my best is enough.” It IS enough. You are enough. You are unlike anyone else, on purpose. Celebrate that! Nothing lasts forever and this too shall pass.

Take time to sit, breathe, and be still. Answers come when you least expect it. Be ok with not knowing. When I have several choices in front of me, I like to close my eyes and imagine several paths in the woods. Each path signifies a different choice. Turning off my brain, I notice which path my self moves toward…then I trust that this is the way.

Having said that, you cannot do it wrong (as my friend Kay Shinol likes to say). We make decisions for a reason. Take time today to just honor yourself and the various decisions made. In that second, moment, it felt right. Accept it. Bless it. Love it. Accept and love yourself today.

"I had a teacher who told us to go out that week and see how many Mercedes cars we noticed. When I came back I told her I had seen a lot! She asked me if I had seen any junk cars. I told her I didn’t remember seeing any. The next week she reversed it and asked us to go out and see how many junk cars we noticed. Of course we noticed a lot but didn’t remember seeing any Mercedes cars. Where is your focus? Is it on the problem or on the solution and more importantly, where would you like it to be?" -- Kim Hiles
