Embrace the Beauty
Reflections from Embrace the Beauty
Believing I was totally alone, lost in thought, I suddenly noticed off in the distance a lone shape making its way through the thick Oregon Coastal Fog. The movement appeared brisk and determined. I was initially startled, my heart starting beating, uncertain as to what or who would materialize as I continued forward. When I realized what I was seeing, I captured the moment thinking that we are never really alone, and that there are countless times in life when we are literally walking through a fog and cannot see ahead. Do we stop and do nothing, allow fear to paralyze, or do we push forward? Like a mother giving birth to her child, she pushes and the gift of a new life appears. All of us have a deep knowing within that we are moving according to a plan, a plan that we have set for ourselves. Even when things seem impossible we will make it through. We are never given more than we can handle and once we learn how to allow and accept the outcomes and stop trying to control everything, life gets easy. Letting go opens the flood gates to unexpected surprises. The experience from the stillness of the fog that day was a living metaphor to keep pushing forward no matter what.
