HOPE MONTH: DAY 12: “When I listened to her, I understood: You have to hold out to see how your life unfolds, because it is most likely beyond what you can imagine. It is not a question of if you will survive this, but what beautiful things await you when you do. I had to believe her because she was living proof. Then she said, Good and bad things come from the universe holding hands. Wait for the good to come.”― Chanel Miller
Isn’t that so lovely? I thought so when I re-read it this morning. Some days I only read the one-lined quotes, so I have missed this one a few times. It makes me smile…so lovely and SO true.
My life has unfolded so beautifully when I am faithful to what I know to be the right path. If I cheat or lie, that is what I get in return. It has been a beautiful journey, and I always know that the universe is going to feed my spirit what is needed most for my own growth.
Happiness is what I get when I do what happiness asks me to do. There are no shortcuts on this journey, nor are there coupons that allow me to bypass the process of spiritual development. I have to live the right way to get the right things. And I know that seeing with my new eyes of gratitude will always allow me to be happy in any and all situations…just the way they exist. No matter what. Isn’t that so lovely?
