“Know that everything is in perfect order whether you understand it or not.” – GUY FINLEY
by Anna Krecicki

Being a hot-headed, quick-tempered Hungaria­­­­­n, I often struggle with mastering the many lessons life may present. I am aware that I tend to overreact at times and I’m usually quick to respond, knowing that my reaction just might start an avalanche of back-and-forth responses – which eventually lead to an unnecessary argument. In addition, I’ve been known to be impatient and stubborn. And occasionally I might obsess a little over things.

Therefore, one of my biggest lessons in life has been letting go. I am learning to resist the desire of my ego to be right, to be heard, to be noticed, and to be appreciated. I am learning to accept humbly all as is and to see my life perfect just as it is.

I realize that naturally we all have the urge to control our lives, we crave to be right, and we wish to have things go our way. But no matter how much we try to control our circumstances and perhaps even others, at some point we must consider that we are not in control: it appears that the Universe has its own plan for us!

I notice that once we learn to let go, to go with the flow, and surrender ourselves to a higher power, life all of a sudden seems to be going more smoothly, things start to fall in place, and we begin to find ourselves in spite of the turmoil around us. When we release our fears, worries, and insecurities, and recognize that the only things we do have control over in life are the words we utter, the thoughts we have and the things we do, we open ourselves to a higher consciousness and we step onto the path of enlightenment.

Having a pretty eventful year behind me, to say the least, and a demanding, fast-paced season in front of me, I must remind myself every so often to slow down, take a deep breath and just let go. For many of us, it may not be the easiest task, but with a little effort and some practice, we can learn to go with the flow and experience life becoming more and more peaceful, harmonious, and stress-free!
