One of the things I use to hate when something unexpected happened to me, is that people, (usually my family), asked me: “now, what are you going to do?”
I was not even recovering from that event when they were already asking me, what I was going to do about something that was, well… unexpected.
Sometimes I thought it was just a typical sentence to say when something bad happened to them, but when I saw their faces really expecting a satisfactory answer from me in that moment, I knew they were really expecting that answer, and if what I answered from my confusion was not considered a good answer they immediately began to criticise and give me all the reasons why that wouldn’t work, they never gave me any good options though.
When you feel, you have to solve or answer immediately to something you never foresaw coming, your mind gets into anxiety and obviously, the decisions, words, and actions won’t be the best, coming from that mental state.
I know everybody talks about having a “plan B” and even a “plan C” in case things go wrong, but the truth is, nobody can predict every possible situation in every aspect of life, and that would be very boring. So, we can be sure we will face unexpected events and although we cannot expect to have a suitcase full of alternative plans all the time, you still have an option that might sound very illogical to you: “when you don’t know what to do, how to react or what next step is, leave it all to the Universe”.
I know it might sound irresponsible and careless to you, but believe it or not, it has worked for me many times, when I don’t know what to do, I just follow the old saying: “Let go and let God”. And most times I received the answer or something wonderful happened, the moment I let go of the anxiety.
Your mind will be clearer, your heart unattached, your body relaxed, so your actions will be unaffected by fear, haste, worry etc. You can expect a better result.
Besides I believe that the Universal Mind can see the whole scene, therefore the answers coming from it, will be the best ones to follow.
The problem is that we are so used to be in control of everything, we have a real hard time to let go and listen to our inner voice from a place of peace and calmness.
Practice to let go of your anxiety, your physical and mental health will thank you for it and will be reflected in your results.
That is going to be the best plan under your sleeve that you can imagine. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!
