One of the hardest parts of being open is when those things that we want show up, but not in the way we expect.
We desire change for the better, and then we lose our job.
We desire change in our relationship, and then our partner decides to leave.
We desire new opportunity, and then our business tanks and we have to start over.
Being flexible and open means having to accept life as it comes to us. It may not look like what we expected, but if we stay with it without judgment, it is usually worth the ride.
How do we practice being open to things showing up in unexpected ways?
Just be grateful for everything life brings us! Gratitude is the surest way to be open to life.
