"You get what you get and you don't pitch a fit."
~ Mia ~
There's no real way to gear up for something coming- physically maybe- but not emotionally, not psychically, not spiritually. We can't know, in advance, how an event might open or close something within us; how it might test us, or reward us, or elevate us, or sink us, so anticipation has its limits. The best we can do is show up and commit to being awake and aware as we go through the experience.
I surrender to the journey, wherever it may lead.
