Have you ever experienced times in your life where everything seemed a little off? You think the circumstance will come and go, and you’ll soon find yourself back on track, but sometimes life has other plans. Recently, I went through an extended period where one thing after another happened. Things beyond my control that needed both attention and action, and just when one problem was solved, two or three others appeared…..ARGH.
It made me stop, think, and question what are the lessons I am suppose to learn? None of the issues seemed related, other than I was the common denominator. Some challenges were so random that I couldn’t begin to guess. I was just about to my breaking point when somehow the latest crisis managed to work itself out. However, right after, two more things hit! I felt the issues were almost mocking me, and I had to laugh…..because if I didn’t, I’d surely cry.
In the midst of chaos, I kept hearing my authentic, heart-centered voice tell me to trust and believe that things would work out. Don’t stress or worry…..yeah, those two words aren’t even close to my top ten to avoid……HA! But, I kept the faith, praying and asking for guidance. Every problem or challenge I faced, came and went. Each one was here for it’s intended season, to build my faith and trust that things are as they should be, and that the universe had my back.
It’s hard to believe those words when you are rooted in frustration, heartache or crisis. By being gentle with and trusting yourself, things will be better on the other side. I am not saying it’s easy, it’s just a part of life’s lessons. So, when the next rainy season happens, I’ll throw on my galoshes, rain gear, and grab the umbrella. It’s in the stormy times I’m learning to trust.
