Trust the Process


What if…? How can I…? Why is this happening to me? How can this be? What have you done?

Trust the process.

When things aren’t going as you expected, hoped, dream, or prayed, do you attack yourself with thousands of questions about how and why this came about? Do you assume you did something wrong? Should have. Could have! With proper insight, would have?

Ick. That’s just suffering. And this is the mantra for you.

Trust the process.

It’s faith-inducing, spirit-rejuvenating, and a powerful reminder that while we think we are in control and can determine how, when, why, and what, the truth is, it’s not the truth.

The choke hold of expectation or perhaps, shocking surprise is disappointing, painful.

Trusting the process means surrendering, feeling, and ultimately letting go of gripping expectations of when and how our goals, dreams and entire lives are going to turn out.

It means we have the power to harness our mindset, our attitude, and reflect courage, strength and love to the world, even when what we are facing is gnarly, frustrating, fearful or gut-wrenchingly painful.

It means we have to provide ourselves with love, grace and powerful acceptance.

It’s no easy feat. But maybe…just maybe, this is part of the process. Part of the lesson you have to learn in your life’s journey to be your best self. That doesn’t mean it is fair, just or kind. But using this mantra can stand as a reminder that you are strong, willing and ready to learn, grow, improve and be your best self.

It’s reassurance. Faith. A simple reminder. Courage. Grace.

Trust me. Trust the process.

You can do this.


  1. Love this one, Caroline. I’m going through a lot right now and this really resonates. Life, death, it’s all part of the process, but it’s hard to see that when you are in the thick of it all. Makes me step outside of my negative thoughts, even my grief, and look at things in a new light. A light that I need to let shine and lead me out of the darkness. We all do it, we all get stuck sometimes on if I only had done this or said that then it would be better. It’s just not so, and for some of us depending on the situation, that is a hard pill to swallow. I will repeat this mantra for however long I have to until I really do “trust the process”. Thank you for turning a light on and letting me think through my emotions on your blog!
    Love and light


    Hi Carla, it is so easy to get tunnel-vision with our pain and grief. Please be gentle with yourself on that – as anything that is painful requires a little time and a little tunnel vision to find the lessons and gifts of a loss or disappointment. I’ll be thinking about you. I recently experienced a loss that gives me so much empathy and understanding. Take care of yourself – do something each day that excites you. :) Love and light to you. – Caroline
