I don't know about you, but even though I know this, I sometimes need a little reminder. Even if I've worked through my struggle to surrender to what's going on, the process I'm in, (which I count as a win BTW), I still sometimes forget that surrender doesn't mean it has to go a certain way (like be hard or annoying).
Currently, we are having work done on our master bathroom. I know it will be amazing when it's done. I know that. I also know that I signed up to have this work done. I chose not for us to do it ourselves. I chose to bring these people and this banging into my house. I know that.
While I've been surrendering to the process, accepting that I can't change it and I do actually want this process, I've been surviving through it. I've been complaining & believing it has to be hard.
Reading this quote...it doesn't have to be hard. Even if the dogs do bark more than if no one were in the house, they are getting better at determining which noises "need" barking at & which ones don't. It's a great opportunity for that. It's a great opportunity for me to work outside.
This is how I can be a creator of my circumstances. What if you were the creator of your circumstances?
