I struggle a lot with being positive and having faith. Sure, I talk a good game, and most of the time I believe what I’m saying, but then every once in a while doubt creeps in and takes over.
I wrestle with Doubt for a little while, and then usually The Universe shows me the way.
It’s difficult having faith when things don’t always go the way that you want or expect them to. I know that there is a reason for this, that something else was meant to be. Sometimes we don’t immediately know why things happen the way that they do; this is where having patience and relying on hindsight is important.
I’m not a patient person. I try. I am successful for a while, and then my patience wears thin and I give up.
I’m struggling with patience and faith right now, despite the fact that what I really need to do is to continue focusing on being grateful and basking in all of the goodness that I have in my life right this moment.
This morning I got up early and headed out for a run, intent on positivity. I focused on gratitude. I counted my many blessings. I visualized my desires. I pep talked myself about the importance of faith and patience.
I returned home at the end of those 13 kilometers in a much better head space than when I went out. Logically I know that things will unfold at their own pace, in due time. I know that The Universe will provide when the time is right. There are always forces at work, even those that we may not be aware of.
These are all the things that I need to remember today.
