Reflect: Surrender 

In this blog I constantly share what I am learning and going through. In between restructuring work and focusing on self-care, I put on my earphones, blasted my hip-hop playlist and hit the pavement to run by the bay.

I took this photo this morning during my morning jog because it reminded me of the concept of surrender. 

Surrender, not to be confused with weakness, is a type of letting go. I learned how to surrender to some higher power. I surrender to a bigger picture I cannot forsee. 

I’ve learned surrender to the purpose of what I want my life to be about. Lately I feel like it’s stronger than anything I’ve ever felt and day by day I let it guide my actions. 

I’ve learned how to surrender to feelings and not fight the waves of emotions coming to and fro. I’ve learned how to surrender to greatness. How to surrender to pain. Surrender to love.

There are many things are ego will fight against. Events that won’t make sense, feelings it refuses to feel. I can run and repeat this cycle, or I can simply surrender. 

Surrendering I repeat is not weakness but strength to me. It gives me this sense of release because I no longer try to control how things “should be” in my life. Surrender in this sense, is trust. Finally I’m learning that too. 

The morning run was amazing. It’s my new thing.
