27 Apr Day #117 – April 27, 2018 – It’s Time To Forgive The Thought That Your Life Should Have Turned Out Differently.
When I went through a divorce several years ago, it was not difficult for me to forgive my ex or me to forgive myself, for that matter. I mean it took time, but it was not the most difficult part of my healing process. To me, the most difficult action was to forgive the thought that my life was supposed to turn out differently. You know? We had a bright and beautiful future ahead of us and now Life expects me to be okay with picking up the pieces, moving on, and starting again? Sure does! So, before I knew that Life expected me to get back on path, I held on to that hurt for years. Honestly, at first, I didn’t realize I was even carrying the thought with me. I had to recognize that first before I could even forgive the thought. Yes, a divorce feels serious, but there are many additional areas of our lives where we are holding on to the thought that our situation was supposed to turn out differently. Some of you are still sitting and stewing in the thought that your finances, job, living situation, friendships, etc., were all supposed to turn out differently. All the while your life is at a complete standstill. So, why aren’t you moving forward and attracting greatness in your life and career? It is because you keep staring at the door that has closed on you. You don’t even see the door that has opened to you. Well, I want you to see the door that has opened for you. Hell, maybe it’s only a crack in a window urging you to enter! So enter. Enter your new opportunity by releasing the thoughts of what yesterday should have been. A closed door is only Gods way of course correcting on your behalf. Trust the process of life. You couldn’t get this wrong—even if your tried. Whether you learn this by taking heed to this note, or you learn some other way, I sure hope you learn this message and soon. Your life’s waiting for you to show up. So, show up today!
Sending you Love & Light,
