For as long as I can remember, I have been a cynic. However, a lot of people I know tend to leave things to the universe. Especially stuff that is out of their control in every way possible. I have laughed at it. And pooh-poohed it. But lately, I have been wondering if there is something to it after all.
Let’s just say I witnessed someone else deciding to leave things to the universe and actually saw something extraordinary happen. No, it doesn’t mean things end up all hunky-dory necessarily. After all, we don’t know the future. But it just made me wonder if there are paths you take based on gut and just letting things be for a while. When I think about my anxiety, particularly around a whole lot of stuff I cannot control, it does make me wonder whether this would sometimes be helpful. To let the universe take its course. That way you don’t spend hours on end stressing about stuff.
I still don’t believe that stuff about the universe will conspire to get you what you want if you wish for it hard enough. But I am going to start having a bit more faith.
To know that it’s okay to not have certainty about things.
To let things be unknown.
To remind myself that it’s okay to let things be.
To not have to act on things straight away.
And trust that it will be okay.
Until next time,
