You aren’t lucky – you’re blessed! OWN your blessings!

Accept your blessings!

Today I just happened to read this blog post by Mastin Kipp over at The Daily Love

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,

Adrian

  1. I read this today as well. I never really thought of it like this before. I guess I look at everything that happens “as is”.

    If it is seen as something good I enjoy it, if it seen as not so good, I immediately look for solutions or how to work with it.

    I never believe something bad will happen when something good happens.

    Ruins all the fun. 🙂

  2. Although its difficult at times, I try to look for the blessings in everything. Sometimes it’s easier said than done, but usually it’s just takes a bit of time for reflection. Thanks for your inspiration Man! 🙂
