sandstorm… you can see more clearly.

But not until then.

We all go through really confusing situations from time to time. And while you are going through them, they never make sense. They are NOT supposed to. At the time, you just need to get through them. But once the dust settles, you can begin to understand just why that situation was happening to you.

Clarity only comes with time. Take a step back from those painful, confusing situations and put your energy into something else. All the wanting in the world for answers will NOT bring them any quicker. Situations resolve and lessons are learned when the timing is right.

Let the chaos around you settle down, don’t try and force the dust to settle either. You cannot control the amount of time you are caught in that dust storm. So best to put on your goggles and gear and trudge onwards. The important thing is that you nurture yourself along the way. All dust storms create uncertainty, confusion and of course bring up fear of the unknown. But as long as you know that going in to the drama, then you can remind yourself that the dust isn’t forever, it is just an illusion and before you know it, that the dust will settle and you will have complete clarity.

Life is a process and everyone gets caught in the dust storm; the question is how do you ride it out? Don’t take it too seriously, the dust will settle and you will see what was there for you all along. You don’t always get what you want in life, but you always get what you need and once the dust settles, you can see what that is.

keep-your-head-up-warm-gray… and learn to let your hair down.

Life is like that. It is all about balance. Yes, we have to be awake and alert to see the signs but we must remember how to have fun along the way. These two must work together at all times. But unfortunately they rarely ever do.

We tend to take ourselves too seriously and make things more grave than they need to be. We are overworked, over-structured and over-scheduled. We put focus on the day-to-day dramas instead of looking for ways to lighten our load. Remember what we perceive becomes our reality.

If you put your emphasis on “working hard to make a living”, you will NOT succeed in creating a happier life, but you will succeed in “creating hardship in your work efforts.” It’s as simple as that. The universe understands “working hard” and so will bring you many more scenarios where you will need to work harder than you are now.

Now that does not mean that you should not use your passion and your drive to succeed, it merely means to balance out your efforts by making your work more enjoyable and breathing more space into those moments so you are not so rushed and frenzied.

Learn to let your hair down. That project will still be there in the morning. Close the laptop and go out for a drink with friends. Enjoy this life you have created for yourself. We only end up imprisoning ourselves by the one thing we think is going to give us the happiness we need. Pushing and pushing for more never works. Find the balance in your work and life. Success in life comes from self-joy; it doesn’t come from working 24/7 at a desk – no matter what you do and what you tell yourself about how much you love it. Life is about balance and the universe understands when an imbalance is at play. If you are not creating space for real joy; it will never come to you. 

Life is to be lived and keeping your head up to make sure you move forward is important, but learning to let your hair down and not take everything so seriously is the key to true success and happiness. It doesn’t matter what happens to you, the sun will always come out again, but it’s up to you as to whether or not you will make time to go out and enjoy it.
