Have you ever felt like you were doing everything right, but the very thing you were “pushing for” just wasn’t working out?
This literally just happened to me a couple months ago, and I couldn’t figure out why it was happening. In hindsight, the moment I stopped trying to “force it” was the moment I saved myself so much unnecessary stress and drama...
Every year between June and July, one of my best friends and I take a trip to celebrate our birthdays. It’s something fun we do to spend time with one another, especially since we live about 13 hours (driving) away from each other.
This year, we were planning on doing A Taste of Chicago!
As the plans were being put into place, things just weren’t going right... From booking flights, to the hotel, the activities, and everything else, things just weren’t working out smoothly at all.
It began to feel complicated, and I do not do complicated well with anything.
After weeks of pushing and pushing to ‘make it happen’, I finally realized it simply wasn’t going to work out. The best thing I could was to let her know, release all the attachments I had to what this vacation time with my girl would represent and remain open to something else.
It wasn’t easy, not even for me, but I did it.
Of course, as God would have it, I later discovered it was a blessing in disguise. Instead of being away on vacation, I was able to be present at home to take care of some critical things that I didn’t know would need my attention.
Sometimes what appears to be a “block” can also be a blessing for something better that comes around later.
As a result, time showed me why our vacation couldn’t happen this go round and I practiced a great act of detaching myself from the outcome (we could all use more practice in that from time to time).
I say this to ask you… is there something in your life or business you’ve been “pushing to make happen?”
Whether it’s a relationship (personal or business), an opportunity you want really bad, launching a program or product, or something else.
It’s important to know that just because your reasons behind why you are pushing it may be valid, there’s a bigger reason why it may not be working out.
What are you willing to let go of and release your attachment to, in order to become available for the blessing on the way?
