There are no exceptions to this lesson, because the lack of exceptions is the lesson. -A Course in Miracles
Stay centered

If you let yourself be blown to and fro, you lose touch with your root. If you let restlessness move you, you lose touch with who you are. – Tao Te Ching

You have been expecting so much from yourself for a very long time. You’ve worked so hard to live up to your own expectations and to provide for the ones you so dearly love. Now it may feel as though the story of your life is beyond your control. You may feel like you are blowing in the wind and feel very restless, indeed.

Who you are is not found in anything external, nor is your strength and security. As you may even be forced to let go of the old normal, know with absolute faith that what always remains is who you are. Though it may sometimes feel otherwise, that which is real about you is changeless and beyond threat.

There is no greater gift that anyone can experience than to live in truth—to shed all that which is false or have it taken away from you—so that you are finally free to be you. The only thing you ever wanted was to feel good, to love and to be loved. This is yours now and always because it is who you are.
