I woke up this morning, and I felt the same pit in my gut I began noticing three years ago. The pit of unhappiness. Because I have not been happy for quite some time, and this unhappiness is not due to being dissatisfied with one area of my life or even a couple, but over all not being happy with my life. When I began to realize this unhappiness three years ago, I started taking measures to try to remedy this unhappiness because no one wants to be unhappy, including me. Fast forward to present day, and I can’t help but accept the voice, the Higher Power at work in the Universe, that says “You’ve done all you could, but stop struggling. Let go. I’ve got you.”
When we desire change, perhaps the reason why change rarely comes is on account of our desire for said change. I have spent my life in pursuit of “want,” and what I have found is that it is a life of struggle. So I’m going to take the voice’s advice and stop struggling.
It’s like the scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone where Harry, Ron, and Hermione are entangled in Devil’s Snare. At first they struggle against the plant, trying to fight to get out of it. Then Hermione remembers that the more you struggle against Devil’s Snare, the tighter it constricts. When you relax, it lets you go.
