Have you ever experienced something that you thought would possibly kill you but it ended up serving you in a profound way? Once you survive horrible experiences, you look at everything differently. At least, I do.
Several years ago, I endured a series of events that I thought would never recover from. Looking back (which I don’t do often), I remember at that time I could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. I had no idea how I was going to make it day to day, much less move forward.
Now I see that the key to surviving those experiences was by taking things day-by-day or even more accurately, moment-by-moment. Self-care and my spirituality carried me through. I am proud to say that not only did I survive, I even thrived.
I now have complete faith that things always work out for me. So, when things happen in my life (like when I was laid off from my job last month), I don’t worry about it too much. I am certain that when one door closes, there are many more opportunities available to me. All we have to do is know that we are worthy of all of desires; we are always supported; we are never alone; and all things are possible.
When you are suffering in any capacity, do whatever you can to soothe yourself. Be easy on yourself, engage in healthy activities, rest often, and know things are always working out for you. Allow your desires to manifest in perfect timing.
It is certain that we will always experience various forms of contrast or undesired experiences in our lives. I am learning whole-heartedly that unwanted experiences not only provide us clarity for what we do want, they also supply the wind beneath our wings to soar higher than ever before.
