I learned several other lessons. I do not have to be more than I am. I am enough. I can let go of outcomes. I can let go of the timing. My footwork is enough. I can trust the process. I don’t have to force solutions. I can surrender my process to a power greater than myself. I don’t have to know how the pieces of the puzzle are going to fit together. I can let things happen at the right time and in the right order. I can trust the process to a loving God. I can learn from my experience. I can learn at my own pace. I have my own learning curve.
I can make a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of the God of my understanding. I can trust Him with the big picture. I don’t have to rely on my own understanding. I don’t have to produce to be enough. I don’t have to compete to be enough. I can relax and run my own race. I don’t have to be critical of my process. I don’t have to judge my efforts. I don’t have to compare myself to anyone. I don’t have to wait for the “when’s” in my recovery to celebrate the progress I make on my road to recovery. I don’t have to anticipate.
These lessons help me to let go of specific outcomes. These lessons help me to experience a freedom that I never knew existed. These lessons help me to love, accept, trust and be at peace with myself. These lessons help me to put my trust in a loving God. These lessons help me to trust the process, a loving God and myself, because I know that more will be revealed in time. These lessons help me to realize that my circumstances are meant to build me up, not keep me down. These lessons remind and help me to never give up on hope.
