What Happens When Life Isn’t Fair?
It feels like we’re falling down the proverbial “rabbit hole”, getting lost in dark feelings that keep us from living a life filled with gratitude and love.
It’s a question we all ask ourselves at one time or another in life… “WHY ME?” And then we dig deep…
I’m not a victim, you’re not a victim, there are no victims. Believe it or not life has your back. Life is working for us, not against us. How we view any life-altering situation has everything to do with the outcome and the feelings we’re left with after the tide recedes.
We have all experienced some sort of major life transition, the loss of a loved one through death or other circumstances, a financial setback, a health crisis, or maybe all of the above.
It’s easy and very much a human reaction, to become a victim. Life’s NOT FAIR….. so how can we move forward with grace and joy?
Some might say it’s “corny, baseless or being blind to what is – is”, but having true “faith” in something larger than ones self, GOD, or a flow/ energy that moves us past the “icky” feelings that keeps us mired in the muck of life is necessary!
It’ not only necessary, but our survival depends on it, the ability to wake up every day and see … ” to be broken is no reason to see all things as broken.” ~ Mark Nepo~
When I first read these word, a wave of peace and joy washed over me. If we’re awake, open and willing, we’ll see that life is a living , breathing entity, that connects us all together, we own nothing, we control nothing and we’re all here for one reason, and one reason only, LOVE.
Our trials and adversities are our teachers, not our persecutors. Granted, some people are born with an innate ability to live life with more faith than others, but that’s part of the work on planet earth, to develop more faith. Maybe that’s why some people seemingly have more challenges than others. To build the “faith muscle” within their own heart, who knows for sure.
One thing is for sure though, no one is “targeted” more than anyone else to grow. We are all called to grow and expand beyond our own self-imposed limiting beliefs, into AWARENESS.
We all have something that, if we allow it, can rob us of the joy and happiness in our life, we can choose NOT to let that happen. Everything in life is a choice. Sounds easy, (to make a choice) but it’s not, it’s simple, but not always easy to make the loving, honoring choice that supports living an authentic peaceful life.
