How open are you to life’s possibilities? I mean really, truly open.
As I write this, I realize I haven’t been. I thought I was earlier this year. A few months ago, I finally convinced myself that it would be in my best interest to accept my circumstances. (Currently, things aren’t quite as they should be…Or is it, as I think they ought to be?) Meanwhile, I realize that deep down I haven’t been willing to let go.
These days I’m trying to cultivate my ability to both accept what is and remain hopeful about the future. And even then, beyond my desires, I know that there is more. There is that which I can’t see–what God has in store for me.
For instance, to this day I think that my ultimate work/life destination is Toronto. Then I saw this in Lilly Singh’s Instagram.
Her words reminded me of how narrow our vision can become. That’s when I thought
Why Toronto? Why not the world?
A long-lost cousin of mine recently asked me,”Do you travel?”
Those words sparked my imagination. The truth is that I haven’t travelled. Or at least, not as much as I think I should have.
But this is not a post about my adventures. It’s about tasting and seeing what life has to offer.
Possibilities are everywhere, and they’re endless.
Understanding this can be tricky. While I enjoy being specific in my desires, I realize that sometimes in doing so, I risk limiting myself. I need to be ready to embrace what comes, regardless of where it’s from, or where it leads.
What about you?
