I am learning to embrace uncertainty as I have recently been through so much uncertainty & change. I am working hard on building up my resilience so I can go with the flow, be more accepting & not resist. I am learning to trust the Divine.
Change is the only constant in Nature. I am learning to not fear change & uncertainty but to embrace it.
Happy New Year to All here. 🥳 ✨✨
Peace & Love….🕊❤️🕊
Life is uncertain, and I fear the unknown, but I’m attempting to view uncertainty with acceptance. Reminding myself that control is an illusion and some of the best things in my life have come from not holding on too tightly and letting go of control.
It’s a difficult dance. On one hand, having goals, plans, and surviving in this world, and on the other hand, being right here in the present moment.
Unfortunately, so far I have had no space today to reply, I will come back to it later. Thank you for your posts, my dear friends. Hope you all will have a good time tonight! 🎉✨🍸💖🎉
My late reply would be that I have to overcome uncertainty sometimes when expressing myself verbally. It is more easy to speak about something, a theme or about thoughts, but expressing myself is not so easy for me.
My daughters phone call about making a decision by January 3 which IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) she would like to choose. This means a change of location and new people/Therapy/Groups. She is in good spirits despite all the changes over the years of in and out of rehab. My hope is this will be the new beginning for her “that clicks” and she is able to want and maintain sobriety for a very long long time. I feel anxious of course but I need to be hopeful. She gave me two possibilities of her next journey and they look good. At least this time I am aware of the next step and can feel more comfortable with it. Happy New Year’s Eve!
My heart goes out to you Robin Ann and your daughter. Peace, love and kindness going your way.
Some doors closing. Others opening… Feeling unsure about unpacking the trauma. I’m sure exactly how to move ahead sometimes and other times not. I feel grateful for warmth and kindness. Thank you for sharing about Bernie Siegel
Uncertainty??? The only thing permanent is change and I’m certain that change will come! I share a short essay from Bernie Seagel
Every Day Is New Year’s By Bernie S. Siegel, M.D.
A “new year” — I think the term is an oxymoron. How can you have a new year? You are the same person, and the world doesn’t start again with a clean slate. Your troubles don’t disappear. People don’t forgive you for what you did the year before. Unless you have amnesia, your life is anything but new when you awaken on the ﬁrst day of the year. It is simply a way of measuring the passage of time. Why make such a fuss over it?
The truth lies in our desire to be reborn, to start again, to make resolutions and changes we can live up to. Then why wait for a certain date to start a new year? Why can’t tomorrow be New Year’s Day? Maybe it is!
I see it every day in my role as a physician: People learn they have a limited time to live, and they start their New Year behavior. They move, change jobs, spend more time with those they love, stop worrying about what everyone else thinks of them, and start to celebrate their life. They are grateful for the time they have to enjoy life and they stop whining about what they wish had happened during the past year.
When every evening is New Year’s Eve and every day you awaken is New Year’s Day, you are living life as it was intended.
Carol, Thank you so much for sharing this essay by Bernie Siegel…some thoughts to start the New Year!!! What a grand essay! something to really think about. My Best to you!
Thank you, Carol. I love this.
The old saying “the best time to plant a tree is five years ago” really helps me with this. Or as a musician friend once said to me “very often, people like tell me that they always wanted or wished they could play the guitar. I get so tired of this. I just want to say, so play the guitar!” 😁
So, so true! Thank you for sharing this.
Uncertainty is a way of life. We never know what is coming around the bend. In the here and now…I don’t want to think of uncertainty…I just want to remind myself to be thankful and grateful for what is now and in this moment. I am happy, secure love and am loved at this moment. I have my husband, my two cats and my dear dog…and I have all I need. I pray tomorrow takes care of me and itself. To all those who come here every/most days…thank you. Happy New Year !
I have a desire to move across the country to be near my son and grandchildren. This means selling up a house I have lived in for 52 years and finding a retirement appartment in the London area where I would be happy to live out my days. Being mostly bedbound and only able to sit up in a wheelchair for 10/15 minutes makes this a quite a challenge! I will be relying on the judgement of my son and the powers of technology for this to happen. At the moment there is nothing available that I am attracted to because I want a view from my bed, so a big window is important to me. And not a view of a busy road or a carpark! Will I given my heart’s desire? It is my intention to be patient and wait and see if it is to be or not.
Happy New Year my lovely Gratefulness friends. May you all be blessed with everything you need in the coming year 💖
I wish that your desire comes true:)
May your wishes become true, dear Butterfly. May the universe resonate and bless you with what your heart desires. My prayers will be with you. Happy New Year, dear friend!
Dear friends, thank you so much for your lovely replies 😊
Butterfly, I will keep you in my prayers. Blessings & Happy New Year…🕊✨🙏🏻
I look forward to hearing how your patience will be rewarded, Butterfly.
May your desire come true. Holding the intention in my heart, too.
Butterfly, You are an inspiration!
Dear Butterfly, I too, will hope and pray that your wish happens. I am praying that the Divine lights your way. Blessings to you, dear one.
Dear Butterfly, I am going to hold your wish to the light and in prayer with you. Many blessings!
not sure I want to embrace the uncertainty of waking up with body aches…. ugh feeling crappy.
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone:)
Aww Michelle, big hug for you 🤗 Hope the aches settle down.
Thank you Butterfly, I feel worse today. I took a Covid test and it was negative so it’s either the flu or just a nasty cold. I’m not getting anything done that I wanted to, ugh.
As the end of 2022 comes for us, i think about what 2023 has for the world. It appears to be in a mess with the hate and war going on. I will try to embrace uncertainty by looking bing in the present, by being hopeful and realizing that there are things that I cannot control. Hope and acceptance and living in the now is healthier emotionally and physically..
Your reply is so true.
Life’s challenges are teaching me to let go and trust the uncertainties in my world.
I do not have to be invited to embrace uncertainty. The nature of the universe and the planet we live on is full of uncertainty. I must just roll with the punches, go with the flow and remain present and aware. Happy New Years Eve all.
At this stage of my life, and being honest, I am not out shopping for “uncertainty,” but rather, the opposite. Besides, life has taught me numerous times that uncertainty will find me whenever it wants.
Through creative and imaginative expression. It requires a different way of thinking, a different way of seeing, and a different way of acting. There is a possibility and potential for a New expressed through beauty, inclusiveness and imagination. Common ground isn’t found between different perspectives and conflict. It is created. May 2023 be the dawning of global creativity and imagination towards beauty and inclusiveness.
May 2023 be the dawning of New.
When Karel my husband died, I ended up on the slack rope towards a black hole. It was terrifying to look into that black hole, a future so uncertain and terribly scary. I felt torn away from all certainties. Very slowly the cord I walked on became tighter. During the walk towards my new life I no longer saw a black hole. I was Accompanied by love, friends, nature, trust. This experience (the hardest in my life) means I do not have to be afraid if uncertainties come back into my life. Life is not about completely knocking me down, but about making me grow with the help of situations that I can handle. Maybe I can say in a few words; I have learned to trust in love. And the love of my dear Karel is allways strongly with me.
You are a model for resilience! Thank you for your thoughts! This next year will bring you just what you need.
So sweet, Yram. My wish for you is also that next year will bring you what you need.🕊💞🌷
Christine, I shared a poem about loss yesterday. If you did not see it, I hope you will check it out.
Thank you, Carol. I think it’s a beautiful and touching poem. Especially when you write about the fire, it touches me deeply.💞🌹
