It will be okay. No matter what it is, it will all work out. Maybe not today, or tomorrow, but one day, you will realize you made it through whatever it is that has you worried. Nothing lasts forever. If you voted Republican, you might be pretty happy right about now. But, don’t worry all you Democratic voters, your turn is coming! It has always been that way, and will be so for the foreseeable future. We go back and forth, with one side in charge of things for a while, then the other side takes over. Lately, not really working together, like they should be, but maybe that will change too.
That’s the good part about change. No matter how much we want things to stay the same, they don’t, and that’s probably a good thing. So you might as well embrace change, because that is the one thing you can count on.
The tiny things will work out okay too. I went to a concert the other night, and I mistakenly told my husband the time we actually needed to leave the house (6:30). Our daughters and I have learned, over the years, that if you want to be on time, you have to tell my husband, their dad, to be ready at least a half hour earlier than you really need to. Maybe even an hour. Because, he is consistently late. But, for whatever reason, I didn’t do that, and with the concert almost an hours drive away, I knew we would not make it on time. He knew we would not make it in time. But, I decided to ask the Universe /God to get us there in time, and I tried really hard not to worry, or even think about it. Guess what? The concert started at 8:00. At 6:00, I was still waiting to get up and go to the bathroom, and change clothes. This is something, for those of you who don’t know me, I can’t do on my own. So, it takes an unusually long amount of time. 6:05, and we just realized that the tickets didn’t print properly, so I had to find the email, in the sea of emails I have, and reprint the tickets. 6:15, and I finally made it into the bathroom. Dressed and, almost ready by 6:35. Then, my husband still had to get the van pulled around, and take out the chair in the back so my wheelchair would fit in the back. 6:50 and we were out the door, but it would take at least ten minutes to get me and my wheelchair loaded into the van, and the chair strapped down. Then, to go next door and pick up my parents. At least another five minutes. We had some light traffic, which slowed us up a bit. Luckily, I had planned on valet parking. We made it into the venue, and to our seats as the head of the venue was on stage talking about up coming shows. Then, no more than two or three minutes later, Mr. John Hiatt took the stage. I don’t know how, but we made it!
Our calendar day, month, or lifetime, is just a dot in the grand scheme of eternity. The majority of the people in this world believe that we all live many lifetimes. While our bodies are temporary homes for the soul, our soul will have many different lifetimes to live. Which, is great news if you are having a particularly tough life! To believe you will get another shot at a life where you can make other choices, or maybe be healthier.
Anyway, the point is, nothing lasts forever! What goes up, must come down! The stock market will go back up. But, it will also go back down. The USA will again have a President who does not call people names. If you lose your job, you will eventually find a new one. You will get over your break-up!
Things will work out, sometimes in spite of ourselves. We get in our own way so much of the time. I may have mentioned this before in a previous blog post, but there is a quote from the movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which says,
Everything will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright, it is not yet the end.
If you believe there is no end, then, even if things don’t work out in this lifetime, they really will, at some point. If you believe things are always working out for you, believe it, or not, that will go a long way in making it really happen!
