Let The Universe Take Over (#188)

Got a little help writing my blurb today. When talking about happiness, purpose, and love, my friend Ashley had this to say –

I think far too often we can become so focused and determined on forcing ourselves to be happy, blindly pursuing what we think is fulfillment. We may try to force relationships, both romantic and not, in a desperate search for feeling love. I think true and actual happiness and fulfillment and love come to us in a way out of our control and in their own time and in their own surprising ways! Of course we can make conscious choices that will help us get there but we can’t really control it – all we can do is have faith.

Wow is she wise or what? I couldn’t agree more with her and as we let go to the power of the universe, we can find what we need most. I’m grateful for people like Ashley and lessons like this.
