Letting go of HOW

If you had asked me 18 months ago... "Lelia, where will you be in January 2016?" Never in a million years could I have ever guessed I'd be sitting in an apartment in Chicago, writing snail mail letters to my deployed Marine, (who I adore with every ounce of my soul, btw!)

My life has changed in every shape and form.

Not just where I live, or my relationship, but in every possible way: Career. Friendships. Spirituality. My relationship with my body. Perspective. Goals. Energy.

Things are SO different from how I imagined they would be. And you know what? I wouldn't want it any other way. I feel so grateful every day that I allowed myself to let go, be present, and let life unfold with love.

It's so important not to hold on to how we think things are supposed to end up.

Because here I am, life has done a 180, and I wouldn't want it any other way. Happiness is found in your present moment. Being authentically happy means allowing your NOW to be your life. Not your someday. (And especially not your past...)

I challenge you to wipe away your expectations; let go of who-what-when-where.

Only hold on to the beautiful energy of HOW you want to FEEL. That is how you manifest the beautiful gifts your future will bring to you!
