If for some reason, everything feels like it is falling apart, or going wrong for you as well, now it may be tough, but you should keep a positive mindset as much as possible it is, as well as believe and trust that the universe has your back all the time.
Sometimes, the times that are the hardest in our lives can lead to the biggest blessing and when everything seems to be going against us, in fact, can be protection that we can actually not see during the time but is taking us onto the right way in our lives. It may feel like some painful ending, but it, in fact, is the beginning of something wonderful as well.
When you feel that everything starts to go out of control, this will be the time to step back, take some time out and relax, as well as do anything that you can in order to remain calm in chaos. When something bad happens, you should analyze the situation and think what is this teaching you or what is this leading to? Then, you should use your imagination of the result that you want.
Richard Branson has once said: “I have learned more from failure than from my successes.”
But, what if everything that happens to you is actually beneficial and you don’t know until afterward? The writer of this article explains that there was one time in her life when she lost her relationship, job, apartment, all in one week away from her home. At that time, she was heartbroken and she also felt scared, as well as fearful of the unknown everything fell apart and changed at once. But, she says that this was actually because it was time to move forward, as she was stuck in a situation that was not meant for her. Now, her path led her to a much happier relationship, discovering her life purpose and living in a much happier environment. We cannot lose anything that is meant for us, we will always receive it or its equivalent.
She says that she wants to share an amazing story with us, which goes like this:
There was one Chinese farmer that used an old horse in order to till his fields. One day, the horse of the farmer escaped far into the hills and when the neighbors sympathized with the old man about the bad luck he had, the farmer said: “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”
After a week, the horse returned with a herd of horses from the hills and this time the neighbors congratulated the farmer on his good luck. He also replied: “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”
Then, one day, when his son was trying to tame one of the wild horses, he fell off its back and broke his leg. Everyone thought that this was actually a bad luck. But, the only reaction of the farmer was: “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?” Then, a few weeks later, the army marched into the village and conscripted every able-bodied youth that they found there. When they found the son of the farmer with his broken leg, they just let him off. Now, was it a bad luck or good luck? Who knows?
Everything which seems on the surface to be evil may actually be a good in disguise. And everything which seems good on the surface may actually be really evil.
So, we are wise when we actually leave it to life in order to decide what good fortune is and what is misfortune and be thankful, as well as trust that all things turn out for good with those that we love in life.
Sometimes, life throws us curve balls which cause us to feel sad and angry but the only thing which we can control is ourselves. We also have a choice to how we respond to them and we can become bitter or better. At any given moment, we have the power to say “this is not the way in which the story is going to end.” We have already got this far and we have what it takes to get through anything. Life will not wake us what can pull us through.
“Any peaceful step which includes calming our own feelings, as well as emotions contributes peace to the world.”
