There are times when you wake up in the morning and it’s crystal clear what you need to do in your life. The excuses no longer add up and delusions you’ve casted over your mind fall away like a fallen curtain.
That’s how I felt when I woke up. Last night I had a real epiphanic moment. A person’s actions will tell you all you need to know about the person. Either their words and actions will be in alignment or they will contradict. It’s really just that simple. There’s no need to vain ignorance or question your senses. You’re intelligent so never question that.
Remember the universe will give you what you want. If you want drama and confusion you’ll get it. If you want purpose, focus and positive people around you it will happen only if you command it. So just grasp it and make the choice to close the door on the negativity in your life. Nurture the people that have no problem operating in your life in a manner that is conducive to the person you are becoming.
Yesterday, I thought I was going to have a chance to touch base with someone that I thought was significant in my life. See, we scheduled time to catch up on the things going on in our lives and I was looking forward to re-connecting. When the meeting didn’t happen, I was disappointed because I had high hopes for the conversation. I thought I would walk away with a better understanding of dear friend in my life. But it just wasn’t mean to be.
So I had two choices: to let this event ruin my already WONDERFUL day or just see the situation as it really was. I choose the latter. Re-connecting wasn’t a priority for my friend and that wasn’t my fault. It was just the truth! So I decided to accept it and move on. No hard feelings. The relationship wasn’t advantageous to my growth as a person and our declarations of affection (love you, love you more) were beginning to feel empty with each passing conversation.
When I decided get over it and watch President Obama with my other friends last night I understood that meaning of changing your focus to positive situations and people. The energy was infectious. We discussed, laughed and debated over great food and mixed drinks. I really don’t think my mother’s generation watched a presidential news conference the way me and my friends did. We had it on the DVR so we could rewind the parts that made us cheer and pause the broadcast when someone had some color commentary that needed to be heard.
At one point in the night someone asked me when the last time I talked to my dear friend was and I told him the truth, “We really haven’t connected in a long time.” It felt so good to speak the truth.
Have a great summer, everyone. I know I definitely will.
Remember that which doesn’t break us will make us stronger. (And yes, Christina Aguilera’s Fighter is blaring from the earbuds of my iPod as I typing this.) Man, I just love technology!!
Change your mindset!! The universe is listening.
