We tend to think things happen to us when we’re powerless and suffering. We take things personally and we feel angry and defeated. We think things are out of our control or that we’re being punished. But things never happen to us – they happen FOR us. Each and every moment is an opportunity to create a new reality for ourselves. There is a huge difference in reality between thinking things are happening to us vs. for us. Each moment is an opportunity to grow.
“The world is only in the mind of its maker.”
– A COURSE IN MIRACLES
We are constantly being guided. When we haven’t been listening to the soft little nudges to change that the Universe gives us, it throws something big at us to get our attention. It’s not because we’re being punished. We’re being helped. The energy on the planet is shifting. Mediocrity is no longer being accepted. The status quo will no longer suffice. It’s time to get off our asses and change things, or things will change for us.
A year ago, I never imagined that I would be the person I’ve become. I wanted to be here very badly, but it wasn’t a possibility in my mind. I thought about how I wasn’t living the life I wanted. I was unhappy and I knew it. I felt powerless to change my relationship, myself, and where my life was headed. Then one day, it happened for me. My relationship imploded and a new beginning was thrust upon me. But as hard as it was, it was my chance to reinvent myself for the better, and that’s what I set out to do. I stepped into my power and knew that something amazing was going to happen. The Universe was happening for me. Intense growth occurs in times of intense strife. After all, what have we learned when things went well?
Blowups in relationships are blessings. They tear down falsities and beg us to show our true selves. Anything that is not true will fall away and we’ll be standing there bare anyway, so we may as well take control and be true to ourselves. I didn’t know I had the power to change it all back then. I wasn’t listening to the little nudges to be a writer or become a life coach, and I wasn’t happy. My spirit was suffering and I thought I had to follow through with my commitment to be a stay at home mom. I focused on everything that was wrong and that got me nowhere. Now I think to myself, “What is going right? How is my life really awesome?” Better questions, better answers.
If something terrible has happened to you recently, take it from me that the earlier you can see the blessing in the situation the better. Everything is a gift. The good and the bad. It’s all awesome. No matter what it is, a year from now, you’re going to have an entirely new vantage point. The sooner you can see the blessings, the sooner you can get to the other side.
Is the Universe nudging you to change something in your life? Do you have a nagging feeling that something is off, something that you need to face? I encourage you to think about your daily life and ask yourself if this were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you’re going to do today? What would you rather do? What really gets you excited?
Today I believe my life is about to change again. I’m in the driver’s seat and I’m at another tipping point and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store! Now that I am completely aware of my power to create the life of my dreams, I can’t wait to use it every single day to manifest the life that I have imagined for so long. Today I will Unleash The Power Within some more. Only 2 hours until we see Tony Robbins and I cannot wait!!!
