Do you ever kind of “lose” yourself when everything happens all at once? I wrote a blog post about stress and how to handle it (you can click here to read it), and while that has helped… I still feel like I’m on a different track. And by that, I mean I’ve kind of lost touch with the universe. Ever since I’ve been busy with school and work, I’ve just kind of put my spiritual wellbeing aside and I’ve noticed something different. I’ve felt very distant from the universe, some things may not be working out in my favour and I haven’t been giving my energy to the universe.
So having this rather dull feeling lately, I’ve decided to pick up my lovely book… You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero. This book, I’m telling you, it’s amazing. I’ve read it before and I actually didn’t finish it because I felt that good with every turn of the page. I thought I didn’t need it anymore and that I have figured it all out. And while that was the case for quite a long time, I’ve fell short. This book is something that you need to read, re-read and keep reading. It’s a reminder that sometimes, you may not have it all figured out but it’s there to keep you on track.
I decided to read it again and really, I just needed that reminder that I am in charge of my life, my thoughts and whatever comes to me. Whatever energy I put into the universe, I will get the same back. It’s that simple but it just takes, well, energy. It takes daily reminders, routines and the power to know that good things will happen when you believe they will. Not to mention, gratitude. Be grateful for your life, what you have, what you’ve learned and where you are going, the challenges you overcome…everything. The universe gives when you truly believe but also listens when you are grateful for it.
It’s more difficult than it sounds because sometimes you just want to roll up in a ball and mope on the couch and I’m not saying you can’t do that, but just don’t do it for long. Don’t dwell on it. If I’m upset with something and I don’t want to be upset, I give myself 10 minutes. Ten minutes to cry, yell and be mad, and then I move on as best as I can. I don’t want to use up my time and energy on something that won’t benefit me because it’s simply not worth it.
Now I’m also not saying you should do what I’m doing because we are different people, but have an open mind! I’m writing this because it has worked for me but it’s also a reminder for myself to constantly stay connected. Even if I’m busy or if my mind is somewhere else, just to remind myself to have gratitude and to give my energy so I can receive that same frequency.
Anyways, time to get back to my book… Thanks for reading and I hope that whatever you’re feeling, the Universe will work with you!
All the love and good energy to you,
