When I am disappointed by an outcome, the first thing I ask is why. I start examining could I have done something different, did I fail to do something I should have. I was on that hamster wheel this morning while talking with my girlfriend.
She stopped me in my tracks. She reminded me that the universe has my back -- always! You don’t know what is on the other side of the issue. Maybe the minor disappointment is protecting you from something that could really be bad.
In my life, in our lives, the universe is always looking out for our good when we trust ourselves to divine goodness. What appears a setback isn’t. When a relationship doesn’t turn out how we expected, perhaps that relationship wasn’t for our highest good. The job we wanted falls through, there is something better waiting for you. You have a health challenge, it’s an opportunity to redirect, accept love from others, and sink into the now.
There is an important lesson here: you are not wrong - it is not your fault. Instead of turning inward and blaming ourselves, stop the self flagellation. Look for the lesson, the opportunity, the gift.
