In continuation of the Self -Love special that we are doing this month I wanted to talk about fate and how it plays in our everyday lives more often than we realize.
These past few weeks I’ve been spending countless hours reading pins on Pinterest that are about life affirmations and manifesting our goals in life. I’ve seen these pins before but for the most part I usually look over them and not take into account what it all meant.
After reading a ton of affirmations there were a few things that I took away from them that I have always believed were true I just didn’t know how much it could shape our lives.
Now, I know to some of you reading this you may not believe in all of this hooplah and think I’m crazy but for great things to happen to you, you have to be a bit crazy or it wouldn’t be worth it.
If there’s anything that I have taken away from this whole “life” thing it is these two things – things always happen for a reason and believe in your goals and they will come true.
These will help you stress about life a little less and not think about the little things too deeply to the point where you assume the worst. For the most part things aren’t ever really that bad but our thoughts and emotions can make an event that isn’t dramatic seem worst then it is.
Life is funny in that way. For the most part things typically work in our favor but not in the way we would expect it too.
That’s what makes life so interesting.
Things Happen for a Reason
I’ve always believed in this saying and will forever believe in it. I like to look at it as a foreshadow to our future or our map guide to our lives.
I used to not always believe in this saying.
I didn’t understand why things I wanted to happen just didn’t work out. Of course, as a teenager when I would encounter a situation like this I believed that the world was out to get me.
To the teenagers reading this – THAT IS NOT TRUE.
It’s hard to see it now but one day when something does work in your favor then it will all make sense. This is when I feel we have to open our eyes and pay attention to our surroundings because there’s a lesson to be learned.
Despite the situation whether good or bad they are the things that we are suppose to experience in that part of our lives because if we encounter that situation again we’ll know what path to take that’ll be healthier for us.
That’s why in my opinion, we all have the same experiences but at different levels of our lives because the universe sees that we are ready to take on the next challenge whereas your friends or family members maybe not be ready for that level yet or has surpassed it.
For an example, losing your job or breaking up a seven year relationship.
When the challenge does come for you though, (and it will) be ready with open arms because Life is way too interesting to give up after coming this far.
Believe in Your Goals and They Will Come True
You have to experience it to believe me on this. I’m sure most of you have experienced it at least once even with something small. This can range from saving up money to get your first car or finally getting promoted to your dream job.
It happens more often than you realize but it takes setting your goals and believing that you’ll receive it for this to happen. Having confidence in yourself is quite crucial here.
If you’re constantly doubting yourself and doubting your abilities to make your desires come true than not much will change for you.
Lets say there is a trip your planning for and your bank account is looking a bit rough. I know the struggle lol but if you have your goal set, say the trip is in six months and you need to make $1000 to go.
First, don’t feel discouraged because that is easily attainable you just have to be disciplined and determined that you’re going to go on this trip. Second, make a plan of how you’re going to save your money. Let’s say you already have a job, then you’ll need to save $170 per month which is $43 per week that totals to a little over $1000. That’s way more doable than trying to scrounge for $1000 last minute.
If it helps place the saved money in either your savings account or cash it out and place it in a jar so you won’t be tempted to touch it.
But if you were quick to be discouraged first and not take the time to plan out an attainable goal for the trip than that’s an awesome opportunity you wouldn’t get to experience.
My Mom would always tell me and my siblings this all the time when we would get frustrated “Don’t get mad, adjust your thinking”. As a young child I didn’t really understand what she meant by this but the older I got the more it made sense. Don’t always believe that there is only one way to fix or accomplish something, sometimes you got to look at the challenge from different angle.
For the most part, it’s easy to be intimidated but don’t let that stop you from going after what you believe in or what feels right to you. If it was meant to happen to you everything will work out to your favor even if the end results doesn’t turn out the way you expected it to.
That’s what is funny to me about “life” and maybe some of you might agree is that, you got to believe in what you want to accomplish and expect to receive it but don’t expect too much from life that you’ll feel disappointed.
In other words, it’s best not to overthink too much. This is something I’m working on lol. It helps if you distract yourself with the idea of already achieving your goal and taking it one day at a time.
Like they say, You gotta Fake It till You Make It!
