What if you knew that regardless of what you do today, tomorrow or a month from now in your life, that everything will be alright?
I know this may be hard to believe, but it’s true. Consider your life so far…
Up to this point you’ve lived your life to the best of your ability-doing the best you could with where you were, at that time. And you are still here. Things have worked out in ways that you couldn’t have imagined them working out at the time, but they still did.
That’s because, things really do have a way of working themselves out-if we let them. When we fight things or try to change them to what we believe they should be, that’s where resistance comes from and it shows up in our lives in painful ways.
Can you breathe in the peace that comes from knowing that regardless of what happens next, you will be fine? That things will work out and that you will be okay, maybe even fantastic?
Bob Marley sang in his song Three Little Birds one of my favorite Marley songs
Don’t worry, about a thing
‘Cause every little thing, gonna be all right
Artists throughout history, religions from around the world, and even the idea of karma point towards our ability to create our best lives when we have faith that things will be okay.
The law of attraction (based in psychology, neurology, and quantum mechanics) is also based on the idea that where you put your energy is the energy that comes back to you. So if you believe that everything will be okay, your energy will follow and things will truly be okay.
Regardless of the foundation of your belief system, what’s important is that you start to consider believing that things really will be okay and will work out the way that they need to work out, in the end.
This means that what we think okay will look like in the end may be very different from what ends up happening. And that in itself is okay.
Garth Brooks’ song Unanswered Prayers is a perfect example of this.
“Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you’re talkin’ to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn’t answer doesn’t mean he don’t care
Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers”
The people in your life and your life experiences created your unique life path that have led you to where you are now, and served a purpose. All of the feelings-joy, pain, happiness, regret…made you the wonderfully complex person you are today.
At this moment, you can live your life grounded in who you are, grateful for each day, each relationship and every experience. Past and present.
Is it possible for you to consider your ability, to just stop wanting things to be different and embrace what is? To believe that everything is as it should be right now, and that things will be okay?
Of course having a deep knowing that things are going to be okay doesn’t give you permission to stop showing up in your life and trying to live according to your values. Being the best version of yourself every day is part of the process as well. And we’ll discuss that more in my next blog post.
But for today, I’d like you to consider-what if everything will be alright? That no matter what happens today, tomorrow or even a month from now-your life will be fine and you will be happy and content? Rather than looking for the negatives and all of the things that could go wrong, focus on what if everything went right? What would that look like?
Then be open to the results that come your way. They will probably look different than you originally imagined, and may take some time. I have learned the true value of patience in my work and in my life.
Yet, if you can get into the practice of taking a few moments to breathe in the feelings of peace and knowing that things will work out. And breathe out the fear or anger at the unknown. You will feel calmer and you will see positive results in your life.
Having faith that things will work out, patience in the process, and the ability to be open to the outcome is such a gift you’ll give yourself. Why not give it a try?
