Wow. 2012 is gone. My one word goal for 2013 is TRUST. We look forward to a new year, and then, when it’s gone, we’re ready to let it go and move on. 2012 has been a tough year for many of us. However, some really neat things have happened that gives us hope and excitement for the year ahead.

Dolly Parton is quoted to have said: Find out who you are and do it on purpose.

This year, several in my family have found out who they are, what they stand for, and what they don’t stand for. As a result, they are diligently working to BE who they are on purpose.

I wonder how many actions women take, or beliefs we advocate simply because someone else thinks we should, or tells us we ‘ought to’ or ‘ought not to.’

Many years ago I realized how hard I worked to ‘make what I wanted to happen, happen.’ Created stress galore. Reminds me of the C & W song, “If love don’t come easy, you gotta let it go.” But I wasn’t very good at letting it go. I wanted CONTROL.

So I made the decision to trust the process, and trust perfect timing. Sounds good, huh? Well, that works pretty good when things are going the way I want them to go. But not so well when they don’t.

Lately, I find myself struggling with it all. I know what I want, and what I think should happen and by golly, I’m going to make it happen, or know the reason why! I agonize, I worry, I get anxious–maybe even a little controlling (?)

Okay, so here goes my New Year’s Resolution. TRUST PERFECT TIMING. Trust that what happens is what is best for me and those I love–and then rest in that knowledge.

How about you? Is it difficult for you to trust perfect timing and let go of trying to control everything? If so, how do you handle it? How do you learn to trust that life events?
