Amazing things happen when you fully surrender. When you surrender the need to control, to plan, when you surrender to fear, to the unknown, when you surrender to fully love, surrender to vulnerability, surrender to pain and heartache and surrender to open AND closed doors.
In my experience these things have happened:
The right person showed up at the right time to encourage, love and support. The right job turned up, the baby came and the experiences and adventures were amazing. But best of all, I have really seen things, like really seen things clearly because I’ve been completely in the moment. 🧐
Today was Day 3 of my self imposed 30 day Surrender challenge. I found myself needing to see the next step and that is definitely not what this journey is about. Hence the need for the 30 day Surrender challenge.
We went to this beautiful Cenote today. But to get into it we had to climb down into a cave. I’m not a fan of heights - and we had to descend on a narrow, metal, completely vertical, long rickety ladder. The hole where the ladder was just fit me through, I could hear my backpack scrape against the wall of the cave. My knees were shaking, but I could also hear my 3 brave and courageous kids and Budge saying “Mum it’s ok. Don’t look down. Go slowly, one step at a time. We are just getting to the bottom and it’s truly amazing. You can do it”
Breath taking - this stunning pool of crystal blue water, with light that streamed through a hole in the cave, just like it was coming straight from Heaven. Today I pushed through the fear, the dark hole, where I couldn’t see, then boom I was free
I have the most amazing little family - grateful
