Life & The Mysterious Powers Of The Universe

The Mysterious, Powerful Workings Of Life & The Universe | hawk + pearl

Just when you feel you can’t handle any more, the weight is lifted off your shoulders.

In your most dire moment of need, you receive what you’ve been lacking.

When you feel the emptiest you’ve ever been, the void is filled.

Right before you’re about to give up, you’re given the reassurance that you’re exactly where you need to be.

As you spiral down and hit Rock Bottom, a magical (metaphorical) springboard appears and bounces you back up, maybe even higher than before.

I’ve found that in my happiest of times, things have happened that caused me to come crashing down — hard, fast, and painfully. Just when I thought I finally had it all figured out, I had been thrown for the biggest loop of the century, leaving me confused, lost, and unsure of which way was up and which way was down. 

But I’ve found the exact opposite as well.

During my weakest moments, I discovered strength I never knew I had. If I misplaced my faith, it slapped me across the face and reminded me it never left my side. When I didn’t get what I wanted, I was actually being redirected toward what I needed. Whenever I lost my way, I found myself being led to the place I better belonged instead.

Life has a funny way of testing your spirits and pushing your buttons, but things always seem to work out for the best. I am a firm believer in that everything happens for a reason and what’s meant to be will be, and the universe has continually reflected the truth in and validity of those beliefs time and time again.

This all may sound like silly poetry and/or word vomit, and it very well could be, but I felt an urge to share these thoughts with you right now. However you interpret this post, I hope you’ll accept it as an honest, heartfelt confession of lessons learned from my past and recent experiences.

My main point here — what I’m trying to say is this:

You have the power to turn things around and live your best life. You are granted the opportunity to put your best foot forward every single time you are blessed enough to open your eyes in the morning and see another day. With positive thoughts, good intentions, the desire to make a difference, and a little bit of stardust, you have the ability to change the world — YOUR world and the worlds of others by association.

The universe is a magical place full of wonder and beauty, ready and willing to reward those who acknowledge and admire its power. All you have to do is practice gratitude daily and truly, and I promise you will be taken care of accordingly.
