So here we are, about 2 weeks into the new year and all those resolutions, goals, and promises that you’ve made yourself are either really working for you or you are finding yourself starting to revert back to your old ways. Things might seem difficult, so you aren’t trying as hard or you’re starting to doubt yourself and maybe even thinking about giving up all together. I ask you to pause those thoughts and please continue reading.
Believe me, I know it’s hard when you’re working towards something and it just doesn’t seem to be going your way. I know it’s hard when you are giving something your all and you keep running into roadblocks. I have a challenge for you. What if you bought into the idea that these roadblocks are part of your journey? What if you chose to believe that everything that is happening is part of a “bigger” plan and is manifesting exactly as it’s supposed to? Often times, the experiences you have along the way towards your goal are the true lessons. It is your true journey, and you are exactly on the path you’re supposed to be traveling upon.
When you come across what seem to be obstacles, that is your time to turn them into opportunities. It is your time to figure out just how strong you are and just how determined and flexible you really can be. Yes, it could be that ultimately that is not the direction your life will end up in, but instead of beating yourself up over it, figure out the lessons that it is trying to teach you and become stronger because of it. Then there is NO way that could ever be a mistake or the “wrong” direction. Trust that everything you come across, every person, every situation, every “obstacle” is there FOR you. Trust that the Universe has your back and it is just prepping you until you are fully ready to take on, embrace, and embody your dream! I mean, let’s be honest here, the more you work for something, when you do finally get it, the receiving of it is a whole lot sweeter!
And another thing, stop listening to others tell you why your dreams aren’t possible. That might simply be because they have given up on their own. Or perhaps, if given your situation, they might have acted differently based on their experience. However, this is your experience. You know your own truth. They have theirs. That voice inside of you is always speaking to you and you know when it is time to let something go and simply move on. But don’t for one second allow yourself to be fooled into thinking that time is reason enough to throw in the towel. Delays do NOT mean denials. If your heart tells you that you’re done with something, then by all means, let it go. But do not be fooled into thinking that the universe works on YOUR time. It works when it knows that it is ready, and most importantly, that you are.
Every thing, every moment, every person, and every experience is unfolding in its own divine way and its own divine time creating the most perfect and unique journey custom made for you. Stop trying to rush each moment, because when you finally get there, you’ll come to find out that wasn’t what you expected either and you’ll be ready to move on to the next. Right now is more beautiful than what is coming down the road; right now is all you have. Why not make this moment, the most beautiful and magical moment you can! I mean, you did create it. Why not enjoy it?
Are there some things in your life that you are getting frustrated with because it’s not happening when you want it to? Do you think that perhaps you can just keep feeding it love, patience, and faith, and allow it to unfold in its own time? If you did truly have faith that all of your dreams were presently in the process of being created, would you be able to enjoy your life a lot more? Well, perhaps it’s time to start believing they were and really start living!
