So today I want to tell you…If you don’t like something, change it! I have had lots of times in my life when things just weren’t making me happy. Like just certain areas in my life weren’t flowing well. Most the time it was something small that was easy to change but sometimes the change would involve some aspect of guilt if I did it. It might hurt someone’s feelings, or it might be hard for me to change, it might cost money, or take time. There was some fear inside me making me think it would be better to just be unhappy. But I do not believe we are put on this earth to suffer through things. We are meant to be happy! So, I made those changes. I quite the job, distanced a friendship, changed my eating, or that one routine, moved from the neighborhood, ripped down that wall, etc…. whichever example we want to talk about. I have learned that if something isn’t quite working, I can change it!
Sometimes we don’t know if it will work out. It is scary to leave the comfortable and familiar. We can’t see the answers. We can’t understand how the mechanics of it will work out. We don’t know what the future will bring us. But I have learned that if I just make that first step, the rest will play out. The universe works for our best interest. (And when I say the Universe, I mean the one that God created for us) If we listen to those feelings in our hearts that are given to us for a reason, we will be led to a much bigger and better future.
Our souls are connected to a divine power. Our souls speak to us. ….and if I am feeling that I am unhappy or something isn’t quite working than I choose to make a change. Everytime I have stepped up and made that change even though there may be unfavorable consequences, I have been extremely blessed. Things always work for the better. It’s like those whisperings of discontent were there for a reason. They were there to lead me to something much better. And those unfavorable consequences I was at first afraid of were not as bad as I worried about or they just never even happened.
I feel that we all have societal pressures that keep us acting a certain way or running our lives a certain way. But I am writing you all today to give you that extra nudge to listen to your heart. If you are feeling unhappy with something. If it just isn’t quite working for you. Or if you are totally unhappy. Look around you and figure out what isn’t working and what you can do to change it. You are the Creator of your life. Take those lemons and create Lemonade!
