No Matter What Happens

A couple of nights ago I had an interesting dream. I don’t know a lot about dreams, but I understand that all the participants in my dreams are me, even if the faces are different.

In this one, there was a younger version of someone I barely knew, and he was asking me, “How do you take care of the jitters when performing in life?”

“The way to do it is by understanding and knowing that everything is going to be fine no matter what happens!” I answered. (My higher self?)

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS everything will be fine. Do you have to be reminded of that sometimes? When we look at some parts of life, they don’t always look so pleasant on the surface. It’s not always easy to see the good. How could an accident be good? How could being kicked out of a job be good? How could someone asking you for a divorce be good?

As you are going through these things, you may feel like you are drowning. The moment you catch your breath and begin to reflect, it’s a perfect time to put your feelings to one side. Feelings tend to blind us. Now you are able to see that before the accident you were going to embark in something you were not ready for, or you were doing too much in your life and the Universe gave you a reason to slow down. Maybe the job you were in was not fulfilling you, or you were no longer being productive, and you were forcing it. Maybe you two had grown in different directions, and it was time to be “you.”

Experience should teach us that in the long run it will be fine. In the short run, we should also remember that being grateful is a great way to find the good in the now. Even when we don’t yet see it in something, it’s helpful to keep the saying, “All things happen for a reason,” handy, to remind us that NO MATTER WHAT, all will be well! All is well!

Clear Minds Clear Solutions

Have you noticed how the solutions for our “problems” or challenges are always available when our minds are calm and without worries?

For example, when you have not shopped for groceries and you think you will not be able to make anything for lunch, but you turn out with the best dish ever. If you are stressed, you decide that the only way is to go out to eat or go shopping, but the possibilities are always there.

The other day I took some things to Goodwill to give away. I thought that it would be a good idea to walk. It was a beautiful day. So, I put all the stuff in a cart, got some water and my keys with an additional keyring to attach to the cart. As I walked out of my complex with this cart full of bags and boxes, a tire got loose and the cart fell on its side. The first thought was (‘poor me.’) I’ll need someone to come and help me. Then I took a deep breath and said to myself, “There are always several solutions to any challenge we have. maybe there is a better one.” I looked to see how the other tire was held in place. It had what I called a thick paperclip. I knew I was near the neighborhood office, I could get a paperclip there. Then, I thought about the keyring. It was perfect for the job. It only took a few minutes to think, decide what to do and do it. My mind was clear, and I had planned to enjoy my day no matter what. We always have several possibilities.

Today I invite you to see the different possibilities to your challenges. Don’t just take the first one that comes to mind. There may be a better one. There are infinite possibilities, and we can see them if our mind is clear.
