What Surrender Actually Looks Like...

THE REAL MEANING OF SURRENDER
.
Have you ever felt like you wanted to “give up”?
.
Have you ever had a goal? A goal that you really, really, really wanted but the time was closing in + it looked like you wouldn’t reach that goal?
.
Have you ever felt like you failed?
.
I have. I have “failed” so many times, I could never go through them all in this little Instagram caption.
.
I have failed in ways that would make you put your hand to your heart + cock your head + say “awwwww.. 😭😭.” I have failed in ways that would make your heart ache.
.
But this is where surrender comes in.
.
When we have an idea about what you really, really want + we think we understand how to get there + then it becomes apparent that the way we thought we would get there will not work; we can call that failure.
.
Or.
.
We can surrender.
.
Surrender to the bigger plan.
.
Surrender to the guidance being offered to us every moment.
.
Surrender the attachment to “our way”.. + trust that there is another more beautiful way, if only we let go.
.
“Letting go” + “surrendering” doesn’t mean to “give up”, in fact, I’ve done some of my hardest, most difficult work only after I’ve surrendered my ideas about the way things “SHOULD LOOK” or “SHOULD BE.”
.
When you truly surrender your path + your single perception of the what you think would be the greatest outcome then you O P E N yourself up to MORE possibilities. The things you could do in the moment expand. You are giving yourself more options.
.
Surrendering doesn’t mean stopping + doing nothing + acquiescing to what’s happening.. it means asking “I believe in miracles.. so if there was ONE MORE THING I could do.. what would that be?”
.
And then letting go of the idea that you know the best way.
.
Surrender today, my loves, AND keep going for what you want.
.
I’m with you. 💗
