This month there was a mishap of what monies were contributed to our investments and it ended up that we made double contributions – not what we had budgeted.

Frustrating, yes – certainly to see less in the account than we had budgeted for. We got to the bottom of it, and at first I wanted for the monies to be returned to the checking account.

And then I paused. Perhaps there’s a reason that an extra chunk went into savings? That’s how the universe works. You get what you need and if you pay attention, you’ll follow your right path.

It’s when we try to control, to hold so tightly, that we set things awry. I know all about control. After all, I’m a first-born leader! Control runs through my veins.

But what about letting go? Totally giving control over to the universe? Call it God, call it the angels, call it what you will. Give it over. Let go and let God.

I’m not sure I know how to do that. I think it’s something like just keeping my eyes wide open and seeing what plays out in front of me and going with it instead of trying to wrest it into the mold I’ve identified. You think?

So rather than worrying about the money, it’s a message to tighten up and spend less and let it sit. Ok. I can do that.

Somehow, things always work out. They really do. Worrying never accomplishes anything, in fact. It’s a waste of time and energy. And if we are really all energy, then wasting it seems like we are causing our own demise.

So what about this: instead of packing my day full of meetings and to-dos and calls, I wake up and see what the day feels like being and follow that where it inevitably goes. Rather than saying YES to every client, listening to my soul voice and letting it answer.

Instead of planning out six, 10, 12, 25 months, just letting a day happen in front of me.

A different way of doing things. I’m going to give it a try.
