Wait and See – Day 2
November 06, 2018
Is this marriage going to work? What is the other person going to do? What’s really going on? What do I want to do?
If you jump to conclusions, you will be hopping all over the place. Instead of relieving anxiety by making decisions when you are unclear, reduce anxiety by deciding to wait and see.
Application: Whenever you are saying, “I’ve got to know right now,” it’s a good time to wait for clarity. Sometimes life slams on the brakes. It makes us wait and tries to show us whatever we’re not seeing now.
From the book: 52 Weeks of Conscious Contact
About the author
In addiction and recovery circles, Melody Beattie is a household name. She is the best-selling author of numerous books.
One of Melody's more recent titles is The Grief Club, which was published in 2006. This inspirational book gives the reader an inside look at the miraculous phenomenon that occurs after loss--the being welcomed into a new "club" of sorts, a circle of people who have lived through similar grief and pain, whether it be the loss of a child, a spouse, a career, or even one's youth.
