Lesson from a milk cup

Inspiration can come from anywhere.  Just like lessons.

The scene:  It’s breakfast time and the toddler wants a bowl of cereal.  So you pour the cereal into the bowl and then pour the milk into the bowl.  Then you put the milk back into the fridge.  You leave the room for 30 seconds.  In that time, the toddler had decided to help herself to more milk and goes into the fridge and grabs the milk carton.  You walk into the room just in time to stop the toddler from spilling the carton of milk onto the table. You’ve just by-passed a big mess.  You’ve just saved yourself from crying over that spilled milk. You feel good.  You leave the room.  Not less than 2 minutes pass and you hear….. “Mom….I just spilled some milk.”  You return to the room to find the toddler had tried to pour the left over milk in the bowl to a small cup that had at one point, juice in it. The milk had indeed spilled onto the table.

The lesson:  What’s meant to happen, will happen regardless of interference from you. You try to control the situations in your life by changing the circumstances, and wonder why the outcomes are the same….what happens is what was meant to happen.  That milk was meant to be spilled.  I had just delayed the process.  The same can be applied to life.  There are things that you cannot control.  Things that will happen regardless of your interference, and your desire to control. So there really is no reason to carry around such things as: worry and fear…..  It’s wasted emotion, wasted energy.  Really, it just attracts the same type of energy to you… If you understand what happens is supposed to happen then what is there to fear??  If you live by faith, what is there to worry about?

my nugget of truth for today…… Let it Be…. Oh…just let it Be.  Whisper words of wisdom, let it be….
