Day 430: Unforeseen Moments

1Unforeseen-MomentThere’s a saying that goes; “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” a proverbial phrase used to encourage optimism and a positive can do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune, within this Lemons suggest sourness or difficulty in life, while lemonade is a sweet drink.

The cover up or brush over an inherent preprogrammed design of survival, to deal with what you were placed in, being that there’s no solution to the problems we face in this world today, and in your world accept the limitations and stay in your place, create your own heaven in your own mind and live in it, because here on Earth it’s impossible for all but only a few chosen ones to seize the moment, the elite.

This is unacceptable by any standards, being that unforeseen moments are all preprogrammed designed, designed just for that moment when you become too comfortable in what you’re doing, as a reality check, a slap in the face, saying; “Hello wake up, you’ve been going down this path for too long without being aware of your surroundings, so here slow down and look at the entire picture of what you’re dealing with”, but instead of seeing that way, we somehow (for most) take it as a sign to give up or give in, feeling that this is the end of the world, our world, there’s no way that we can get through this, the adversity is just too great.

The un-ignored then begins being ignored, where we lose focus on the common important things like our wellbeing, it seems that unforeseen moments abduct our dreams, where common sense reasoning as our last defense system of an elusive life, was shattered the moment we became too comfortable in what we were doing, the life we were living.

Is this all there is, have I wasted what I’ve put into my life thus far, why wasn’t I warned of this? Would I have believed it if I was? Does my life have any value to it anymore? What have I done to deserve this? Am I the only one this is happening to, as some of the questions one asks oneself after the anger and frustration ensue and realization sets in that you’re really going through some shit.

Are these moments really unforeseen or have we been blinded by the projected outcome of a good life looming somewhere out there in our future, in which case elitism would never stop as we would happily take the place of those that has gone before us, in exchange for the toes we would step on of our fellow men and women, family members and friends to get to where you are now, thus we create and design unforeseen moments for ourselves.

I mean I hate it, I hate the fact that when you’re doing all you can to get ahead in life and/or to get right, then steps in the Unforeseen Moments we all so dread as the, Judge, Jury and Executioner of our plans. It doesn’t seem right, but look at it this way, are you more aware now? Yes. The loopholes of the plan we had, becomes a bit more-clearer, where in some cases refinement is in order and in others, a complete overhaul or scrapping of the plan is in order, a well needed correction of oneself, that way you’re able to walk to the other side of what’s to come with awareness, to not repeat the same mistakes again.

Unforeseen Moments open the door for an extensive amount of fear then into paranoia, the manifesting factor of things becoming even worse than they already are, within this you have to be very careful to not overthink the process that’s unfolding in front of you, as if the mistakes we’ve made was not enough and we need more problems.

What has to be done is first off, to take a moment and slow yourself down, take a breath then investigate how and why did I get myself into this position, then look at all the mistakes that was made leading up to what you’re facing and apply self-forgiveness on each mistake that was made and the self-corrective statements, stating your corrections if/when you come face to face with making the same mistake again and walk/live the correction.

Ok so lately I’ve been face with an Unforeseen Moment, while in the middle of this project I’ve been working on and my process for walking through it has been a test in itself, where it seem like it’s never ending, the mistake I made was looking/thinking about an end result, instead of walking through it point by point, breath by breath and day by day, but once I realized this, I was able to slow myself down, redefine the word stability and continue taking it breath by breath, moment by moment and one day at a time, which now my mind chatter has reduced emphatically and my awareness has increased. Yes, I am still walking through this unforeseen moment, but with the tools of writing, self-forgiveness (in the moment) and self-honesty, I’m able to get to the resolve less strenuously and for that I am grateful for taking the Free DIP Course online, that gave me the tools to be able to face this Unforeseen Moment and walk through it.

Thank you for reading.
