Abundance Deep Dive: Day 24
Today was a great recap for me, and all about becoming Resilient, and avoiding the pitfalls of Scarcity. I once had a mentor tell me that I was the most determined person he knew, and never worried about me achieving my heart’s desire.
I thought about what that means to me, and what makes me that way. Why am I so determined? How am I able to face fears and push through to the finish line?
I’m not afraid to fail.
There are many lessons in experiences that don’t work out. Trial and error shortens the gap, and makes figuring out the solution easier each time I try it.
What eventually beats me down, is my lack of faith in the Universe. Sometimes if I have my heart set on a path, and it feels like doors keep closing, and nothing is working out, I eventually cave and let the circumstances beat me down.
It doesn’t take very long to realize that I don’t like being in that spot, and each time it has happened, it was a HUGE opportunity for my character to develop. Last summer I had the chance to let friends support me, and became a nanny to their children because all other opportunities were falling flat. It was hard to take money from them at first, and then I realized they needed me more than I needed them.
This summer, I had the chance to choose my heart and soul over money, and it felt AMAZING! Saying NO to what sucks me dry in order to say YES to the NEW!
It doesn’t always look like a gift or a blessing when it shows up.
Right before Steve announced today’s topic, I was thinking about being resilient. I was reminiscing about a dear friend, and remembered a situation where we were not communicating well. I had to stand up for myself and show how I wanted to be treated. He acknowledged my point of view and agreed to the new terms, and it felt like a stronger connection. How a simple reframe can make such a difference!
The same goes for the circumstances. Asking yourself what the benefits are, the opportunities or the lessons…
Take the emotional charge out of it, and look at it from multiple perspectives. What would your past self think of this? Your future self? The Universe? What about your soul?
You are not your circumstances!
Sometimes the simulator is creating a test for you and your character. How will your story continue? One event in your life doesn’t make you a bad person, or a shitty human, unless you let it. Everyone makes mistakes. Forgive yourself. Learn from it. Move on.
I’m going to leave you with that for now. Until Tomorrow!
