I shared this quote on my Instagram a while back. You can check out the post here.
I couldn't agree more with this quote, and if you know anything about me, you KNOW that Universe is my bff. I can talk about her all day every day, I love her more than words can describe, she's good to me (& I'm good to her), but sometimes... she throws some challenges my way!
Haven't you noticed that all successful people, no matter the field, always say the same thing: "I had a lot of challenges along the road, a lot of hardship, failure... but I wouldn't change a thing. It taught me a lot and it made me who I am today."
Isn't that beautiful? More importantly, isn’t that true?
What if we looked at every situation with the mindset of:
'What can this situation teach me? What do I need to learn here?'
The funny thing is, and I'm talking from my personal experience, when we don't learn certain lessons in life, they keep re-appearing over and over until we finally learn them! Isn't The Universe funny? (I know, sometimes it can seem more 'annoying' than funny, but trust me, she just wants the best for us.)
I have certain habits that aren't the best when it comes to communication and expressing my thoughts & feelings. I've had them for years and my mom used to point it out to me when I was a teenager. It used to make me even more frustrated.
I moved to New York City in 2015 and after a few years got into a relationship.
You wouldn’t believe it, but those things that my mom was pointing out to me have come to haunt me all across the ocean! (okay... not haunt me, but teach me!)
After we moved in together, my ex-partner started pointing out the same things that my mom used to say to me for years.
I moved across the ocean and a completely different person, on a different side of the world, started telling me THE SAME things that my mom used to tell me.
Well... all I can say is that I finally began to learn my lessons.
The Universe, and life, wants you to learn all these lessons so you can be THE BEST version of yourself! One of my favorite books is 'The Universe has your back' by Gabby Bernstein. She talks a lot about life lessons that The Universe is wanting to teach us. She, too, explains that when we don't learn certain things - they will keep re-appearing.
For instance, she mentions that sometimes we keep dating different people, only to find out that in one way or another they're all the same! (or shall I say, they trigger us in the same way!)
You do your best to run away from a certain lesson only to find out that it's waiting for your around the corner, with arms wide open!
Funny how this stuff works...
Take some time to look at your challenges with an open heart and a clear mind.
