When Life Doesn’t Conform
Do you have a set idea of who you are? Does life conform to your ideal? Often not. Most days it is all you can do to take three steps forward for the two steps back you wake up with.
On the other hand, you reject the notion that life does not have to conform to your plans to be truly happy. See it in yourself. You know the truth in this. There is a revolutionary part of you that knows you are not in absolute control but the superficial you won’t accept it.
Accept it. You can be happy if all of your petty demands are unmet. The sooner you see that what is, is, and you use your tools and skills to make the most of any situation, the better. You can make it what you will. A new you evolves the day your fake idea of yourself is dropped. Then, a whole new life begins.
