Say when it’s not right for you

July 11, 2017

Not all doors that open up are good for us to walk through. Sometimes, we’re in that dark corridor, and no doors or windows are open. Then, a crack of light appears. We get an offer—for a job, for a relationship, for a place to live. Our gut goes off. We know this isn’t right for us. If we weren’t desperate, we wouldn’t consider it.

You’re not desperate. Even if you are, act as if you aren’t. If it’s not right for you, it’s not right for you. Back off—even though you may be burning with impatience and desperation.

You don’t have to do anything that’s not right for you.

God, grant me a spirit of serenity and patience. Help me take a moment before making any decision to ask for guidance first.

From the book: More Language of Letting Go
