BLOG: Struggling with Reality


There’s just no point in struggling with reality—with the way things are—the things that are not in our control. It’s exhausting to attempt this!

We may be disappointed in some parts of our current situations because it’s not what we expected—it’s not what we wanted. We think, “This is not what I had in mind; it’s not what I planned. I wanted things to be different. It’s just not right!”

Facing reality and accepting it, rather than struggling with what is, brings us freedom to be more at peace as we have more time to focus on what is going right—what we are grateful for. I guess this is what we mean when we say go with the flow. It’s what I call having The Inside Advantage – experiencing life deeply, joyfully, and successfully.

Who knows, maybe this is exactly the way things are supposed to be; we are at a certain place, experiencing certain things, each person in our life playing their role perfectly–all to help our souls learn lessons and become more enlightened.

The saying in the photo above (the Serenity Prayer) is in my home where I can see it every day as a reminder:  Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Thank you for joining me on this spiritual journey.

Blessings, Love & Light,

Touch a Heart with TIA
