Effortless Expansion Episode #039: Walking Through The Hard
Listen, you guys, I've been walking through some heavy stuff in my life.
I've been seeing myself in some dark light and some dark shadows.
I’m sharing this with you because it’s real life.
I usually talk to you guys about expansion and manifestation, but the hard stuff is also a part of the process. It’s a part of life.
When you call more into your life, things that no longer serve you need to be cleared out.
This can be a verrrry uncomfortable process.
Here’s the thing: I am going through some things in my life that I didn't ask for, but I'm actually okay with that.
It's unrealistic to think I will somehow be able to avoid anything unwanted at all times.
And truthfully, it's not what I want.
If I knew how every moment of every day was going to play out, where would the excitement be?
There wouldn't be any, right?
I want magic.
I want fun.
I want to have moments that take my breath away.
A predictable world holds no surprises.
I hold the belief that everything is always working out in my favor even though I am walking through some really hard stuff right now.
I will admit that if this would've happened to me two years ago, I would be thinking things like:
Why is this happening to me?
This is the worst-case scenario.
I better start preparing.
This is terrible.
This is devastation.
Now, I can hold the perspective that even though I can't possibly see how this could be for my highest good right now (because I'm just so in the thick of it) I've lived enough life to know that it is.
I’m going to say that again.
Even though I’m in the fricking thick of it, and I can't possibly see how this could be happening for my highest good, I know with conviction, that it is.
In my 36 years of life, this has always been true and I know it will always be true.
Think about it…
Recall a time in your life that something less than ideal happened to you.
Are you able to see the silver lining in it?
Maybe it taught you a crucial lesson.
Maybe it gave you thicker skin.
Maybe it gave you an unshakable mindset.
Maybe it helped you to see that you are much more capable than you thought you were.
Can you relate?
We can all agree that at the moment it felt TERRIBLE.
Of course it did.
But you survived it, are better because of it and now you are here to tell the story.
This is where I am at right now.
I still don't know how it's going to work out.
I still don't know like what's going to come to me on the other side of this.
I do know, however, that there are going to be more situations that bring me to my knees in life. And I know the point is not to avoid them.
The point is to hold myself through them.
