About 3 hours later I got some VERY good news from Blue Cross that I was approved for some funding – this should help us out a lot through these tough times… then, like a lot of us, I started thinking that this was too good to be true and that it must mean that something bad is going to happen. Which brings me to what Mastin says in his post:
And what’s interesting now is that there’s this part of me that is thinking, “Well, I know the other shoe is going to drop and something will go wrong, because life isn’t supposed to be good.”
Later in the post, Mastin honestly states (as he always does) how he plans to accept the good fortune he is having in his life and states that he’ll do the following steps to succeed:
1 – I’m going to accept that I have it.
2 – I’m going to look for evidence contrary to my fear.
3 – Who would I be without the story of abandonment? I would be free.
4 – I continue to remember that life is not about me and what I want, per se, but truly service and helping others. When I focus on helping others, my problems lessen and I feel a sense of contribution and connection.
For me, I am going to try the same and trust that everything happens for a reason (even the good stuff) and continue to hopefully try to help others along the way on this Journey.
Does anyone else feel this way when good things happen? Why does this happen? Please leave a comment if you have anything to add!
Lots of love,
