Today's affirmation card reads: "My life works beautifully! Everything in my life works now and forevermore." I'm struggling with this affirmation today. I have to keep saying to try to believe it. Although I have many things to be thankful for, things don't always go the way that I want them to or better yet the way I "think" I want them to. This affirmation keeps reminding me of what my wise mom always says "there is a reason why this or that wasn't right" or "there must be a lesson to be learned" or "there is something better that is going to happen. I am a teacher. I have been teaching for 20 years. Throughout those 20 years I have applied for other teaching positions within my district. Most of them I did not get. Each time I didn't get the job I "thought" I wanted I was very upset and my mother would always say:"there's a better position waiting for you". Through the years I have learned that she is right. It doesn't happen right away, but always sometime later I'm very glad that I didn't get those positions for one reason or another. Then, 6 years ago, the right position opened up and I just knew it was mine. I worked very hard and I got it! Had I gotten one of those other positions, I wouldn't have the great position I have now. I was a classroom teacher for 15 years and now I am a Math/Technology Consultant and I love it! So eventhough there are some bumps in the road, my life works beautifully! So, when you hit a bump in the road, stop, take a deep breath, try to find the positive in the situation, and know that there will be smoother part of the road coming up soon and know that your life works beautifully!
Just an additional note to all of my readers- I truly love and appreciate all of your comments. They truly inspire me and keep me positive! Thank you so much
