Who do you blame when things don’t work out? Do you blame your partner, the economy, the government, the universe?
What would happen if you started living your life with the attitude that everything is going to work out… everything is going to be ok?
The truth is that everything does work out, just not always exactly how and when you want it to.
Imagine how much energy you’d save by not trying to force people or things to be a certain way. Or how many more risks you’d take if you had more faith in life.
Your trust and faith has been eroded slowly over time by a lack of commitment to yourself.
To trust others, and to trust life, you have to stop letting yourself down.
When you say you’re going to do something, you have to follow through, or at the very least renegotiate your commitment.
Continuing to lie to yourself in all those small seemingly insignificant ways is taking its toll on you in more ways than you realize.
When you let yourself down, you teach others that it’s ok to let you down.
If you tell yourself you’re going to go to yoga or work-out, and you don’t, that’s a broken promise.
If you tell yourself you’ll eat healthier and you don’t, that’s another lie.
It’s seemingly small stuff, but it’s having a deeper impact than you know.
There are countless ways in which you self-sabotage and you’re probably not even aware you’re doing it.
You don’t need to cling to what the outcome of every situation will be, you just need to commit to doing the work. And when it comes to your relationships, relationships of all kinds, trust that they will turn out exactly as they are meant to.
Each relationship will serve its purpose; it will teach you something about yourself. But if you approach every relationship guarded and apprehensive, you’ve already solidified the outcome…it doesn’t stand a chance.
To have a chance, it needs your trust and your faith. You can find out more about honouring your commitments to yourself and building trust and faith in life and love in my new online immersion, Heal Your Heart.
