If you’re not getting what you want, look at why–not from a victim standpoint but from a place of genuine curiosity 🤔
I’ve been working toward a goal recently, and not seeing change at the pace I would have liked. This led me to reflect on why this was happening. What I discovered was surprising…I realized that I was withholding love for myself and acceptance of where I am right now until I’ve achieved what I set out to do. I saw that what was actually being asked of me was to deepen my capacity to love myself and feel happy regardless of circumstances.
It turned out that not yet having reached my goal was exactly what I needed because if I had, I might have tied my happiness to those achievements and missed out on the opportunity to celebrate the progress I had already made, and to love and connect with myself in this moment.
So if you’re feeling frustrated or stuck, take a moment to ask, ‘why is this happening?’ or ‘how is this situation giving me exactly what I need?’ These questions can help unlock a fresh perspective that enables us to feel complete with the way things are right now.
And the more we can embrace our lives exactly as they are, the more receptive we are to all the things we’re calling in ✨
