You make a commitment, you make a decision to change and right away the universe gives you a chance to prove it. It’s like making a decision to cut out all sugar, and life offers you an all you can eat cake buffet. That’s what I recently had. I had the chance to test my own words. To put into practice the New Years post. And I almost failed. I almost acted out of emotion and reaction – and I don’t want to be led around by the nose a slave to momentary ego, pride, and yes some justice. Yes there would have been a justice in my old behavior. But what I want is change.
I want to remove myself from the reactionary emotions of ego and see what behaviors come out of that. And here’s to a small 2017 victory over ego. By breathing, stepping away, and naming my emotions and gut reactions I was able to diminish their power. I also realized that this wasn’t worth allowing into my soul. So a small victory of acting smartly and wisely. Hopefully more will come.

Yes, the universe does listen and act upon our desires. We don’t have to do the “doing” the universe will bring what we want to us. When we don’t stay in our power or in our resolve, we are telling the universe we really don’t want what we did previously and so the universe responds accordingly. So……watch your thoughts. When we are in our power (and we know it’s good, because it feels so good, after all that’s what we are…… “good”….and don’t you ever forget it….ever!

Thanks for this. Yes, it’s a little careful what you wish for. But I welcome it. After all, what is growth without a little challenge.
