Diversity-the state or fact of being diverse;difference,unlikeness
My Life has been coming together in ways I could never have imagined! I have connections and friends I have waited my whole Life for, and yet I woke up this morning, got to work and got really angry.
I was going to write some ripping good stuff about parenting and children and consequences and the piece was going to be filled with tons of righteous indignation, but then I took a damn minute and just listened to my head. I don’t ever give it credence, but I do listen.
As so many synergistic things are evolving, and Life is moving forward for me at a miraculous pace, my ego is miserable! “I don’t have what I want!” it says. I don’t have this, and I don’t have this and they’re doing this wrong, and I don’t have her because she hates me and thinks I’m a lunatic, and they think I don’t know what I’m talking about and what am I going to do about my writing piece? I’ve never written a 10-page anything before except a Masters-Level thingy! What the Hell!What the Hell!What the Hell!What the Hell!
So then I stop. I just stop. And I remembered something very important. Every single aspect of my Life is perfectly in order, thank you very much! All that noise happens when I get really, really close to things being spot-on and poised to take off!
Do I have the woman of my dreams? Yes I do! And she is in my Life playing the exact perfect role I need her to play-as my friend and trusted confidant. I know how to write, and the ten pages will come. Can I control people who choose not to follow the input I give? Absolutely not!
The bottom line is that today, as the Miracles in my Life keep coming, I am reminded to keep surrendering and stay in gratitude! Yes this is a very simple thing to come up with given all the noise my head makes, but you know what? It’s the complicated crap the I think and then make the mistake of buying into that gets me in trouble. There is no exception to this rule-not for me.
Having ADHD means if I am not paying attention, I get all up in my head and make my Life a living Hell, and thus, by extension, the people in my Life that I Love so dearly. It takes a lot, and I mean a lot of practice to be able to detach from the noise and chaos going on in my head, and stay rooted on the Earth, connected with my Heart. I have to practice daily reminding myself that my Heart does not lie to me ever, but my head does.
My Life rocks! I have everything and everyone I could ever want in it! I am so profoundly grateful to have come so far!
Light and Love to all of God’s children!
