Are you going to Answer It?
Not everything always goes as planned and most of the time that is a good thing because even though I think I know best, I’m often shown that I don’t. When the universe throws me a curve ball it usually propels me into a direction I wouldn’t have chosen but one that ultimately turns out to be the better path.
The gifts of the opportunities I’ve had have been wisdom, experience, faith, and many more, all of which I need on the road ahead. My own personal mantra is to have no regrets, I don’t want to ever wonder “what if” so I make sure I take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way, even if I’m not sure of it because I believe that the Universe doesn’t make mistakes, everything is meant to teach us something!
There is benefit to every door that opens, just because you haven’t seen something yet doesn’t mean it’s not there. Sometimes you just have to expand your awareness and have faith that “everything happens for a reason”, all will be shown when the time is in sync with your awareness. In reflection I know that there have been times when I’ve had the same synchronized moment occur that I didn’t get the first time it was shown but did later when my awareness was more in sync.
If you live your life never taking advantage of the opportunities that come your way you are depriving yourself of the possibility of something really great happening, something you never could have predicted or envisioned. Even if you feel slightly afraid of taking that step forward I think you will find that in doing so not only are you confronting your fears but you are empowering yourself. Empowerment is exhilarating, scary at times, but exhilarating and the more you choose to take that risk, the more the opportunities will show up in your life.
Our existence is all energy and our energy is increased or decreased depending on which side of it you are feeding. If you are working to expand your awareness and build your faith in the universe it will respond and if it’s not responding as quickly as you would like then that may be because you have not yet reached that synchronicity. The Universe will give you signs, not all of them are as prominent as you may like but don’t give up, the signs are the indication that you are going in the right direction. Your gut instinct is the confirmation that those signs are real, don’t ignore it.
Not everyone experiences the opportunities the same, it all depends on your comfort level with chance and your willingness to answer that door.
There have been many different paths I have taken so far and I’m sure many more to come, I intend to continue trying each and every one. Without the trial and error we don’t have the opportunity to stumble upon the life and purpose that is perfectly suited for each of us.
Perfection is the beauty you see in your opportunities, they are not a “one size fits all”, they fit only with you.
