Ever have one of those days when everything goes wrong?
You set the alarm a half hour early to hit the gym, but woke up an hour late!
You get ready in record time and rush out the door to to make your 9am client meeting (“who schedules a meeting at 9am on a Monday?”) only to have that damn car splash dirty rain water all over your brand new suede pumps…
Everything is ok, you made it in time… and then your client starts being a “you-know-what.”
And then your friend calls on your lunch break, bitching about her husband not taking out the trash again and you’re yelling at her in your head…”WTF! I can’t even get one decent date in this town!”
Alright…tonight you get to order in. It’s been one of those days. Thai food is going to hit the spot and make it all better.
20 minutes go by…30 minutes go by….45 minutes…60 minutes…dialing…
“Oh yes, sorry ma’am, the order already left and should be there any minute.” Riiiight.

In those times it may feel like the world is against you. Like you’re in this dark hole, sinking fast, trying so hard to swim back up to the top, but no matter what you do, you just sink farther and farther down.

So we spend all of our energy on being angry, disappointed, resisting the present state, asking “why did that happen?!?!?”, even though there is absolutely nothing we can do to change what has already happened.
This causes us to hit rewind and play on the event over and over and over again, experiencing that frustration over and over and over again. We then experience a revolving door of negative emotions… regret, resentment, self-doubt…one building on the other like a rolling snowball.
And in that time, we miss all of the signs and opportunities that the Universe has been giving us to create and experience a much better outcome than we currently are.
Think about how many signs and opportunities you may have missed over the past years because of how much energy and time you spent living in the past, getting angry at it and wishing you could have changed it?
Here’s the good news: While you may have missed out on some opportunities in the past, there is a limitless reservoir of opportunities still at your disposal. It’s never too late and the Universe will always be doing its part to guide you to your highest potential. You just have to decide if you’re willing to to your part.
So, let’s try something different starting today so you can begin creating a more positive reality. When you experience a negative situation: Continue reading
