Even if the universe doesn’t owe us anything, do you ever feel like it’s conspiring for us anyway?
For me, it’s been noticeable through the people who have been brought into my life. The circumstances around my newfound acquaintances seem to bend in my favor. I wish I could say that I willed it, but I can’t. It’s a mystery!
Sometimes I wonder if I have been tested and rewarded. Other times, I wonder if I’ve thought about “my happy life” so much that it’s unfolding now because I’ve been steadfast about it.
There are some things I accomplished with purpose, but like I said, I don’t know if I caused everything to happen or if I just waited long enough.
What did I do intentionally?
- I admitted my ignorance and sought enlightenment.
- I started meditating.
- I stopped taking things personally.
- I look for deeper meaning.
- I judge less.
- I look for the positive in situations.
- I wait patiently.
In the beginning, I wasn’t laser-focused on a destination—I didn’t really know what it would be, and in a way, I still don’t!
I was actually focused on what would make my journey more enjoyable.
So I asked myself, “Is this the story I would like to tell?” And/or, “Is this the story God would want to tell?” It has helped me focus more on the journey.
