It amazes me how I will struggle so hard and for so long with a particular problem and suddenly, when I least expect it, comes a moment of clarity. It appears in my own “aha!” thought or… in the words of a dear friend or… an image I see on TV… something… anything… that somehow drives me to finally connect the dots. When it happens I always feel like saying to myself, “I can’t believe you didn’t see this sooner” but the truth is… without the journey… there is no moment of clarity. It is a series of events that leads me to that moment and it is my Higher Power that brings me to clarity exactly when I am ready to accept it.
– “Dear God, help me to be aware and in the moment so that when clarity finally arrives… I am willing to move on and away from my past problems.”
Traveling this week gave me some distance from my immediate neighborhood , friends , and all that has been familiar since I moved from my home a year ago now.
I can relate to this post a lot right now. I’ve had those “aha” moments … It’s as I could really “hear ” those comments from my closest friends and family for the first time.
I don’t have to allow my mind to take in hurt , pain , damage from the past.
I understand why my marriage ended. I m beginning to see what I can learn.
I feel I was so naive, so trusting.
Now I see a open path forward but it’s all very new & scary.
Don’t be hard on yourself. You were open to love…. 🙂 the new path is scary… because it is unknown but full of endless possibilities 😀
Thank you; you’re right!
It’s exciting and exhausting some days trying to build upon a new life, and trying not to worry so much about what happens next. Worrying daily was a habit the last few years of my marriage and I’ve realized I have to let go of THAT too ! 🙂
I agree that there are no real regrets for being open to love and taking a chance on romance. Sometimes it doesn’t work out – but there is always hope for the future. My second marriage is the most wonderful choice of my life and I am glad I did not remain trapped in my first one – or I would never know this joy.
Jenny that is ABSOLUTELY the same for me! 🙂 D.
moments of clarity happen when I get out of my ego thinking and embrace Gods guidance, have a blessed day.
So true, the moments come on their on and cannot be forced
