REFLECTIONS ON DIFFICULT TIMES
We lived in our old home for nearly 9 years. We had a lease-to-buy option. When the time came for us to try and purchase the house, the bank asked way too much money and so we decided to look for another house. It took us 7 months of difficult and stressful searching with a lot of disappointments to finally get to our dream home that practically “fell in our lap” from what we truly believe is a gift from the universe and God.
I remember once we moved all our belonging to the new property and came to the old house one last time, I sat in the empty patio and reflected on the nine years that Clayton and I lived there with all our beloved furry-kids.
I tried to reflect on the difficult times that we experienced over the years. Some of the challenges that we faced were easy to resolve, while others were so difficult that we felt stuck, frozen with fear, confused, and scared. But without a doubt ALL of our challenges really tested our faith! Our faith in spirituality, the universe, each other, and at times our faith in God.
While remembering our difficult challenges, I also reviewed our reactions to them, the actions that we applied, and the amazing lessons that we learned. I was also able to clearly see how much our difficulties has shaped who we are, individually and as a couple. The difficult experiences that tested our faith strengthened it, the difficult times that causes us to be frozen with fear helped us be courageous, and the difficulties that caused us to doubt, blame, or disconnect from one another caused us to remain united, and connected, and more loving than ever!
But most of all, I realized that despite how stressful, difficult, and at times unbearable, our experiences on this harsh planet are, we CAN overcome it and survive!
We just have to remember that difficult times will pass, that challenges are there to teach us and help our soul grow, and when times are hard we need to “dig in deep”, observe our reactions, apply the right actions, be patient, pray, and ask for help from the many powerful Light Beings that are there to assist us!
If you are experiencing a difficult time, please know that you will be OK! It might not feel that way at the moment, but hang on, believe, have faith, and patiently wait for the beautiful positive energy to shift your way!
Remember, there are NO unanswered prayers!
I love you all,
