You know in the movies—or maybe you’ve experienced it in real life—how people will take a person all over, seeming like they’ve forgotten their special day, only to allow others to set up the details and arrangements for their surprise?
What if this low time, this uncomfortable period, this odd stage of transition, that seems to be lasting forever, is just the redirect? What if it’s the distraction while the details are being worked out for one of the greatest seasons of our lives?
What if the delays aren’t because we’re doing it wrong, or because we’re out of alignment, or unworthy, but because what we’re seeking to manifest is being lined up and prepared?
What if we’re enough as we are? What if we’re doing enough for this moment? What if we are actually on our way to one of the greatest seasons of our lives?
Life can throw us some painful curve balls. I’m standing at the plate right now, so trust me, I know. It’s not easy when you’re in a tough season. Hugs to you if you can relate.
I’m sharing this perspective shift, because it just came to me. These words comforted me in a moment of sincere WTF. So I’m sharing it with you in case you need a shift, too.
If you’re in a low season, remember seasons are temporary. Even if the details can’t change, we can. We can shift how we view things. we can find a more empowering perspective.
Maybe winter felt extra long, but spring follows. If you’ve been going through for a while, it’s easy to stop expecting good news. Our expectations are powerful. It’s hard to get good flowing when we only expect the bad. Today, I decided good gets to come to me, too.
Let’s begin to look out for good, the way we’ve been conditioned to brace ourselves for bad. Let’s leave a little room for hope, and anticipate some good news for a change. I believe it’s coming. We’re definitely worthy of it. You are worthy and deserving of a good life.
Life gets to be good for all of us. Let’s begin to expect it.
