Today’s Thoughtful Thursday quote for the day:
“Detach yourself from the outcome; in that, you will find happiness.” – LadyDee
Cooking and baking, we envision in our minds the desired result. When it doesn’t turn out the way we planned we feel upset or discouraged. It effects the way we cook or bake next time. What if we just cooked or baked? We know what the ingredients are & the methods to get the “perfect” dish, so why not trust the process? Even when we do everything “right” it can turn out unexpectedly, sometimes better or worse, or not at all. The same goes for Life. “Well, I did everything I was supposed to so I should be further ahead now or in a better place.” Yes you very well may have done everything “right,” but your disappointment comes from result not being exactly how you planned it.When we view life’s moments as the experiences that they are & without the expectation of the outcomes, we learn to live in the present more, & enjoy the process rather than just results.
Simply put, when we understand that our attachment to the results of a situation don’t have to affect us in ways that make us feel down in the dumps about life, we let go of the disappointments & live in Peace. See that breath you just took without even thinking about it? That’s Life, reminding us that there is still life to be lived & experiences to have, love to be shared, & lessons to be learned. So detach yourself from the outcomes & live in the moment. There is so much Joy & Peace there to be had. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆
