Life doesn't always turn out the way that we think it will. Often we hold tightly to a vision that was created so long ago of what we thought our life would be like....and when life doesn't turn out that way, we can't let go of the old vision.
We spend a lot energy living with regret, with disappointment, with anger about the way things have turned out. We stay in our fear of the unplanned so much that it prevents us from living the life that is waiting for us.
Often we get stuck in anger. Anger is an emotion that we hold on to because we wished things had been different.
Anger is finding blame in others, in self, in circumstances. Anger is a cover -- for the pain we are experiencing.
We only live one life. Do you want to live it focused on the past -- or looking toward the future?
I say go for the future -- at least is is a new adventure as opposed to roads we already know. And that is where new magic can happen!
In order to look towards the future you have to acknowledge the disappointment, be willing to let go of the security of anger, and to know that it will all be ok.
Because it so will be ok....
