Have you ever envisioned accomplishing a goal? Every detail was in your mind’s eye. In reality, you accomplished your goal, but it didn’t look like how you pictured it. I certainly have. This is why I think we need to abandon the vision. We have to let go of the picture we have in our minds and be open to all the ways we can accomplish our goals.
I’ve been wanting to write this lesson for many years, but this lesson really applied to my life within the past few weeks. I have always wanted to be a mother and by the grace of God I can say that I am. In my mind I wanted to have a natural birth and to exclusively breastfeed. Well guess what? God had other plans for me.
My labor and delivery and my feeding methods were not what I wanted or expected. BUT I still get the same results:a healthy baby MashaAllah. Instead of being upset everyday because things didn’t go as planned, I had to abandon my vision of how I wanted things to be. I had to focus on the results instead.
I don’t know what you are going through or what your goals are. But I do know that there are many ways you can work towards achieving your goals. Focus on the end result and be open to all the possible ways of getting there.
Be blessed. Be positive. Be you.
Always & Forever
Forever & Always
