Some decisions are not for us to make.  Not because we did something wrong, or we didn’t have the proper credentials, or we haven’t earned the right to have them.  They just happen to us.  And when they do, life can be difficult.
This is what many of us are not not taught.  How to cope, manage, and survive through the times when it will be this way.  We are educated and formed on what makes a successful life without being enlightened on the many components behind the mysterious forces of life.  How they are at play, while we strive to control our lives with socially derived timelines and expectations.
Forces we don’t SEE while we work feverishly towards the ones we think do.  We are not informed there will be those times when losing is going to make us grow more than winning.  Huh, who would have thought this could have made so much sense.  Not me.  Loss was not a word I would have ever excepted to understand.  Actually, it was an outlawed  notion, not be spoken of or even considered.  There “lied” the main crack in the foundation.
As I said, some decisions are not for us to make.  They just happen to us when they are supposed to.  And when they do, what comes next will either transform you…or destroy you.  After all, the force does have a dark side.But, this is when the matter of choice returns.
This is where you can regain your power.  What the outcome will be?  To sail on while bearing the cross of lessons learned and life lived fully?  Purely?
To sail on and cross over into the deeper SEE of new beginnings?  Only you can say.
I feel the force is strong within you…
Bridge Over Troubled Waters~Simon & Garfunkel
Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
