It was one of those days where things got really, really busy. Sometimes those days can spiral out of control, but not this one. Yesterday, the more I did, the better things got. Everything good seemed to build into something even better.
It was also a day that turned out completely different than what I expected. When I looked at my calendar in the morning, I had one appointment. The rest of the day was open for me to catch up on some stuff, do some reading, work on writing for you….it was going to be a nice relaxing productive day.
But it didn’t turn out like that at all! Now, when things started to go differently than I had planned, I could have gotten frustrated or angry. I could have shut my phone off and demanded that I was going to do what I wanted to do. But instead, I just went with the flow.
In situations like this, I’ve been learning to trust the flow of life. When stuff comes at me, I try not to resist it. Instead, I try to figure out what place it has in my life, deal with it, and move on. Sometimes, that means following the distraction that has taken my attention away from something I was focused on, just to see where it leads me. Other times it means taking action when I feel called to do so, even if it doesn’t make complete sense to me.
Mostly, it’s just about trusting that the universe is all a part of a grand conspiracy to bring success to me. Not just for my benefit, but for the fulfillment of my life’s purpose which is all about you and your success, both personal and professional, and helping you find true happiness, contentment, and abundance. The universe is conspiring to do good for me, because I appreciate every drop of it, and because I use what I’m given to do good for you.
The more I live this way, the more good days I have. Instead of trying to have things my way, I try to flow with the things that come my way. Instead of taking happiness and positivity and holding them in my heart for my own gratification, I find that I am happier when I act as a conduit for these feelings. Taking them in, giving them a good dose of gratitude and appreciation, then turning them right back out to others. Trusting that more and more will keep coming my way.
The good days are always the ones where we can turn happiness, joy, peace, or love that we receive into happiness, joy, peace, or love for someone else. All you have to do is start the cycle. Get, appreciate, give, then trust that since this is a cycle, you’re bound to get again.
The bad days start the other way around. When we stop the flow and try to hold on to what we want, the feelings of frustration, anger, resentment, fear, or any number of other negative feelings come up.
When I got home last night, I got out of my car and walked out into the driveway, looked out at the beautiful scenery that I’m so blessed to live with, and said (out loud), “THAT WAS FUN!”
I can’t wait to do it all over again tomorrow.
Have a joyful day!
