We all face challenges throughout our lifetime. Some face larger hurdles than others, and of course at different times in our lives we face different kinds of challenges.
I think one of the hardest challenges that we face are the ones that shake us at the core - because it's these challenges that make or break us. It's these challenges that we struggle to accept a new way of thinking or it challenges our old way of thinking, and we rejoice in the truth that we always knew...
Sometimes it is hard to decipher what the universe is trying to tell us. Sometimes, it is difficult to make understanding of the crap that is shoveled our way. And perhaps we aren't supposed to. Maybe the whole point of being knocked down, is to just get up, again. Like a reminder to ourselves, and perhaps others, that with the good and the bad, this world is still worth living in - but it isn't always fun. To enjoy the good times when you can, and try not to take them for granted.
My car was recently broken into. And I had stupidly left my purse in there. My ID, a whole lotta money (of which I really can't afford right now) my books and notes for a course (of which I have an exam for today) and the Peanut's toys were all taken. I wasn't the only hit that night, I was but one of a series of cars and sheds that had been broken into. And I am sure I won't be the last.
I admit I spent a little bit of time wondering what exactly the universe was trying to tell me... wondering why this had happened to me... having a bit of a pity party. No doubt pretty BIG suckage regarding the loss - but I had to remind myself of the important things. Me & the Peanut. We are fine, a couple $$ and some toys and books short, but we are still two happy peas in a pod (albeit a little broke pod).
Sometimes you have to let got of the control, in order to gain it back. Once I let it out into the universe,
I realised that it was but a small bump, and I could take it. Somehow, someway I do believe this crazy universe and all that happens in it makes some sorta sense. Some days I am crazy enough to understand mere glimpses of it. Somedays I am happily baffled. The rest of the time I just try to trust that the universal law knows way more than this gal, and who would want that job anyway? Not I.
So I will put it in a bubble, and blow it away... and make room for some of the good stuff that this life has to offer. Cuz why feed that negative stuff with my awesome energy, when I could be playing in the leaves with my Peanut?
