Yesterday in my savasana I was to be getting in the gap but for some reason my purse being stolen popped into my head. The best thought came from this. Although, I feel I handled the incidence well. I didn’t get upset or angry. I forgave the person and life moved on. Life is more than things. I also had the thought: how did I attract this? But then my savasana taught me: sometimes it rains. It has to rain.
Life isn’t always a breeze. I often crave the challenges life has to present. So what I learned is sometimes shit happens. Life happens. Sometimes it rains, but what matters is our perspective. Do we let it ruin our day? Do we let it get it down? Do we take the rain and turn it into an angry thunderstorm? Do we quit?
Rain is a chance for us to thrive. To gain nourishment. To grow. After an intense summer last year, I saw this. I saw how stunted and deathly the crops looked. We need rain. It’s a part of nature. It’s a part of our nature. We need the rain to grow. Without challenges, we are stagnant. We stubbornly try to cling to sameness and safety in a world that is constantly changing. We can change. We are changing. Embrace the rain and delve into the uncertainty of life. There are no mistakes, just experiences to learn. To develop. To discover. To find ourselves. To bring us closer to our true selves. To bring us closer to our purpose.
In the moment we may not understand why something is happening, but we can’t go get plastered at a pity party. Step back. Trust the Universe. This is part of my path, for some reason, I don’t know why now, but it will work itself out. I can grow from this. I can blossom. I can thrive.
