I may not be the most organized type of Planner, but I am definitely the type of person who likes to know the order of things to come. And, I prefer to be the Designer of the events…as well as the Supervisor. I can also be my own biggest critic when things don’t go as I had planned.
I also hate surprises.
The results can be devastating to the person who thought they knew.
When things in my life started happening that contradicted my thoughtful plans and previously accepted truths, I did what anyone would do-
I continued trying to make the new condition I was presented with fit into my old paradigm.
My symptoms became more consistent and persistent until I could no longer ignore that they were a new truth to be accepted– even though that required me to accept a new framework for thinking, and put my fears aside.
Through the uncomfortable process of identifying my fears, I found the way for me to feel grounded was to dig deep and find what my most inner values were.
Those values were comfortable and felt like home.
As long as I clung on to those core values (and sometimes I had to hold on with all my might), I wasn’t as afraid of the outcome because I trusted that whatever will be, will be out of a genuinely pure intention which was truly the only thing within my control.
And I will be able to handle the results.
When the roots are deep, there’s not reason to fear the wind.
