How I Fight and Win Every Time

Listen to the podcast

An obstacle I encounter often came up again this week: Honoring my instincts versus accepting God’s plan. Listening to my G.U.T. (God Uttering Truth) vs. Let Go and Let God.  
Life is teaching me that the more I let go, the more peace I have. But, when I think about issues like equality or freedom, I feel strongly that so many things are worth fighting for.
How I’ve come to serenity around this is to understand: My 1st job is to fight. Fight for what I believe in my heart to be true. But, my 2nd job is to let go of the results. Fight, then let go. Fight, let go. There’s no peace in ignoring my truth, but there’s also no peace in making life entirely about the fight.

    I would love for you to join me as I work to undo these old patterns and evolve to create a more serene and accepting existence. (And you should know that I still want to ear flick the little knuckleheads {this includes my husband} when they don’t rinse a dish before putting it in the dishwasher — always a work in progress.)
