Surrender. I remember I first heard the concept when I was doing work on myself. A tough one to swallow for someone like me. To accept where I am today in this moment, now, without judgement and resistance. To learn the lessons of my present circumstances. To know I am exactly where I need to be.
What resists persists. So I am laying down my defenses, tired of fighting, of trying to move forward. Something is being worked out in me and in those around me. I may not be able to identify it today, but I know it will bring me to where I need to be.
I can overcome not by force but by surrender. The battle is fought, and won, inside me. I must go through it until I learn, until I accept, until I become grateful and until I am set free.
I have to trust I am right where I need to be, and be grateful too.
