Don’t Kick A Gift Horse in the Mouth



Sometimes you have to let everything go. The plans. The ideas. The questions. The worries.

Out. Go. Be gone. Get.

Then you throw your head up at the sky/universe/God/Mother Nature/He-Man/Whoeveritisyoubelievehasyourback and say, “Alright, I trust you. I trust this process. I trust. I trust. I trust.”

You repeat this until you believe it. And then somehow it seeps into your bones and you do believe. Because it’s true. The universe has your back.

This week I looked up and said, “OK, you got me right in the middle of my leap year. Here I am and I’m not going anywhere. All I can do is drop the questions and trust you have my back. Trust you’re guiding me in the right direction.” (Yes I talk to the universe and yes that makes me slightly kooky).

Two days later I get two little peaks inside how the universe works to keep us on the right path:

1. An email from a place where I teach telling me that students are requesting that I have a permanent class in the next session.

2. A gift left by a student at another place where I teach – homemade socks (the best kind of cozy and colourful socks) with a note that said, “Thanks for your enthusiasm and for introducing me to yin yoga.”

So I look up and say, “Ahh, I see what it is you’re doing universe. Thank you, you little minx.”

Happy weekend – keep talking to the universe and see what she sends you.

  1. article is quite interesting and hopefully true happiness rays began to warm the hearts of us all, when we can share it with sincerity. Greetings from Gede Prama 🙂

  2. Love this! So often the steps we’re led to take come with a bounty of uncertainty — but only when we lose sight of the coast can we cross the ocean, right? Thanks for sharing!!
