It took me a very long time to realize that everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING, works together for my good. I had to be willing to hang out and see things with the long view, over time.
There have been so many things in my life that were very difficult and intense for me, but that eventually, I’ve been able to see that they were for my best. I’ve learned that being willing to accept that they possibly could be for my highest and best helped me to find my way to that realization.
I used to feel a strong need to judge and label things as quickly as possible. It gave my ego a false sense of security, but it wasn’t actually helpful to me.
I’m grateful that I can now clearly see that many things that didn’t go the way I wanted them to have actually been a blessing. I’ve learned to see the blessings in the painful relationship, getting fired, being deceived, being ignored and left out, being injured, getting sick, and many other things that my ego originally labeled as “bad.”
I’ve learned to say, “I can’t wait to see the blessing in this!” I’ve learned to feel assured the blessing is there whether I can see it, feel it or have any sense of it.
Just because it looks like a bummer, doesn’t mean that it isn’t for my highest and best. Why judge it as bad if that doesn’t make me feel good?
Once again, my willingness is the key to living a blessed life.
Is there something you’re rejecting as wrong and bad that could actually be a tremendous blessing for you?
