Obstacles are detours in the right direction.
Two years ago, I was so hyped trying to find a new job for a new company. I had all the skills, and while going through the interviews, everything seemed peachy. There was only one problem: an obstacle in my way… someone didn’t like me that much, and at the final stage, they just thanked me for my time, and I lost the opportunity. At the time, this was devastating. I wanted the job badly, and I had everything they asked.
As you can imagine, I got mad at the beginning. It wasn’t until months ago, while working in something I didn’t expect, that I discovered why my first choice wasn’t the right one and how the Universe guided me to the right place.
What’s yours is on its way. If a door closes, fair not, you’re being protected because there’s something better for you!
What looked like an obstacle in my way (losing the perfect chance, or so I thought) turned out to be one of the best things that have happened in my life. The second (and unexpected) job had many pleasant surprises for me; I also met very special people.
When a door closes, it only means that there’s something better around the corner. Obviously, we might get angry and sad because when it happens, we might be devastated.
I celebrated separation with a bottle of pink prosecco
Okay, that’s a huge thing to say, but hear me out: separating from my ex has been a blessing. However, I must admit that it felt like the end of the world when it happened. After some months of gloom, I realized that it was the best that could have happened for both of us!
Free and with a grin from ear to ear, I open my heart again just in time for nice things to happen in my life.
And yes: I did celebrate the whole thing with a friend and a bottle of pink prosecco. (It has to be bubbly and pink for me to celebrate!)
Divorce, separation, looked like a tremendous and devastating obstacle from which I wouldn’t be able to recover. It turned out to be the best thing in my life, which set me up for the first steps of what would turn out to be pure happiness (I describe it like that, yes). Things aren’t perfect, but because I choose again and because I know that if there’s an obstacle, it’s only protecting me and guiding me to a better shore, I know that whatever happens, I am enough to provide the happiness I seek.
Be the one who brings happiness, don’t expect it from anyone else but you!
I know, that’s a mammoth statement to blurt out. But it is true: if you choose love again, if you accept that obstacles are there to bring you to what’s yours, and if you make yourself happy, you’ll be the light for others. When you place the power on others to make you happy, it will be devastating. But when you have the power to make yourself happy, then you’re set up to be most of the time happy by choosing again and knowing that you’re more than enough, your own hero, and bluntly put: amazing!
