Oh, boo-hoo. Let me cry myself a river. Why? Why me? I know why.
The Universe provides us with experiences to bring out the best in us. Experiences will repeat themselves until we learn our lesson and react differently. I kept this thought in mind as I approached the intersection and then added a deep breath, a big smile, good music and thoughts of the amazing things that are in store for the day ahead...I let those in a hurry make their way in front and silently blessed them. I was thankful that I was not in such a hurry. Before I realized it, I was on the other side...literally and figuratively.
When we keep going through the same thing over and over, we have an opportunity to grow, to master, to remember, to respond rather than react, to change our circumstances. My experience in traffic is a mild example. There are more important issues that arise for us. Which is it for you? Is it financial troubles? Is it that you are taken advantage of at work? Is it the wrong romantic relationships showing up? Is it missed business opportunities? Is it discord in your family? Is it health issues?
Today is a good day to think differently about whatever keeps showing up in your life. Choosing to react in the same way will net you the same results you have been getting. Decide that you will respond in a new way with an open mind and a willingness to see things differently. Relinquish your ego. The Universe will then provide you with new and different experiences.
