Sometimes, well most of the time, we need to simply let things be and let ourselves be too…
“Today will be what it is. I will be who I am. And there will be beauty in both.”
Today will be what it is. There is a certain freedom in this, in listening to and applying these words and allowing today to be what it is. By letting the day unfold as it will and exerting no control beyond your own actions and reactions to it, you allow it and yourself freedom from trying to control it.
The same is true of “I will be who I am.”. By doing and being just that and placing no pressure, no expectations beyond just being who you are, you give yourself permission to simply exist. And you allow yourself to experience the day as it is as you move through it.
When you do these things you will find the beauty, the joy, the very essence of life in both things. It’s almost magical how it works. By taking today and knowing that it will be what it will be and that you will be who you are during it, you are allowing life to move with ease. Yes there might be obstacles or upsets, but they will pass by and you will still be you and the day will still be the day. By not trying to control the uncontrollable, you exert yourself less and save your energies for what matters.
Think about it – you can’t prevent certain things, like no Internet service or traffic back-ups. They just happen and some days have these kinds of annoyances or inconveniences. Likewise, you can’t always help your reactions or emotions. They also just happen and sometimes it’s ugly. But if you allow them to be, accept that they will sometimes occur, you are much more able to find the beauty in them and then move past them.
Stop beating yourself up for just being you and stop blaming the day for just being what it is. There is no need. Breathe and after a moment or two of just letting it be what it is, try to find the good, the beauty. Today will be what it is, you will be who you are, and there is beauty in both!
