Have you ever had just, “One of those weeks?”
This has been one of those for me. It’s hard to reconcile it all and think, “This is all meant to be.” – I honestly wonder, what is the lesson here for me, can it come quick, and end even quicker?
When things seem to be falling apart around you, that is THE MOST important time to take a deep breath and know that the Universe has our backs. We are part of it and it is part of us. Everything will be okay . . . we just need to be patient and give it time to work its self out. This is the hardest part for me personally. I just want things to be perfect now. My life has been in chaos for two years, so NOW universe, please stop trying to teach me lessons.
I talked with a friend last night that I have not been able to connect with since my separation. I filled her in on my life and she did the same. She lost a child not too long ago, shortly after birth. The crazy thing for me is that we both had the same experience in completely different ways.
Both of us thought life could not get any better. Nothing was “wrong”. We lived in the suburbs, with great kids, a nice house, volunteer work under our belts and seemingly good relationships. Then, out of the blue life changed for both of us (in very different ways), but we felt the same – sadness, despair, loneliness, fear. We are both still morning losses (hers of her newborn son, and me of a marriage I thought was the “perfect dream”). We both were feeling the same way, but with completely different life experiences.
This made me realize (even more so), that we all want the same things ultimately in life. We all feel the negative emotions in life the same way. These just all come to us in varying experiences. To see myself in her and her in me, made me see how similar we are in so many respects.
In the end, if we can live open and lose our identity/labels, we can truly see that we are all one striving for the same peace, happiness, security and love.
