We can get caught up in the “what if’s” or the “if only’s” without even trying.
If only I met this person three months ago, then my life could have gone in this direction. What if I took that job offered to me six months ago, where would I be? If only I didn’t make that decision, then I could be <insert whatever is fitting> in my life.
It’s easy to dwell on all the endless possibilities of our lives. Yet, every decision you made at any point, was for a reason. If you trust in your journey, then you will accept whatever happens, happens. Everything happens for a reason. Timing is everything. Some things are meant to only be life lessons. We have all heard these sayings.
The universe set up your path a certain way for all sorts of reasons. It doesn’t always make sense and it’s not always supposed to be right away. “Nothing worth having comes easy.” It all falls together. If you keep believing that everything you experience in life has a purpose, then life can be magical. And it will. They guide you down the journey you are meant to take. Trust, and you will believe. It’s very true when you hear people talk about mind over matter.
If you believe it, then it will happen. I understand it is very hard at times to go through something painful that makes no sense to you. We have all been there, or are currently there now. Trusting that you’re going through this for a reason is hard to accept. Try, and do everything in your power, to find the silver lining. The positive outcome that can come from all this. There is always a silver lining. Always!
What helps me during these times is meditation. I can see the pathway or answers. And I can have a better understanding or perspective of it all. At times when I’m downright angry, anxious or stressed… I breathe. Sometimes that’s all you can do. Yet it needs to be released somehow to get it out of your system. In a healthy manner of course.
Some of the courses of life you go through, are to teach you some type of lesson. Unfortunately, sometimes we need to learn the hard way. That may be the only way the universe was able to get through to you. Perhaps you were not paying attention to all the other signs. That’s okay, it’s part of life. We live and we learn.
We have all been there as well, learning the hard way. Take your lesson, and run with it! Make the positive changes. Don’t dwell on the issues or allow them to affect you more. They are presented to help guide you in a better direction in your life. Time to take another course on the journey of life.
“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.”
