The best of life does not attend to plans or schedules. Most of the time it is enough to let ourselves go, to allow things to happen by themselves, with the subtlety of chance, with the openness of someone who is humble and expects nothing, but in truth … dreams everything.
You may have already heard of the law of attraction. According to this principle, people should be able to achieve or become what we want thanks to those energetic units that emanate from our own thoughts and emotions.
Under this perspective would enter that famous phrase “you become what you think.” It means that in the Universe there is a kind of law of attraction where thought itself makes us achieve our goals. Well, it is not our purpose to criticize or defend this approach, because actually things can become much simpler.
Happiness is there
Leaving aside that kind of mind-universe attraction, we could say that life is a wonderful cluster of coincidences where happiness can be hidden in any corner, in any corner. However, not everyone can be receptive enough to see it, to let go.
It is not a matter of magic, but of openness, of wanting to see, of leaving the comfort zone and opening those interior doors that we all have to allow ourselves second chances. If you realize that you deserve to be happy, you are already doing something great for yourself.
You are “acknowledging” yourself, you are nurturing that bond and that self-esteem where things can begin to be much easier. Because life is not planned and on many occasions it insists on going against the plans that we have made with all our illusion. Let’s reflect on it.
Life just happens and you have to get on that train to experience it to the fullest.
Become first what you are looking for
You may dream of finding the perfect partner. To that person who accompanies your days with affection, who is an accomplice of your wishes and projects, a lover of your smiles and the refuge of your hugs. You know how you would like it to be, a person who is emotionally mature, funny, understanding, dialogue, humble and without fear living in their voids.
So, what do you think if instead of “dreaming it” you first reach all those dimensions that you want in the person you love? Become someone worth spending a lifetime with. Be the one you dream of, because if you feel good about how you are, the happiness you bring to whoever is next to you will be more complete.
Learn to allow yourself what you deserve, so that what you need arrives
No, we are not talking about the law of attraction. It is something much simpler. Think, for example, of those people who have experienced emotional failure and who decide to close the doors of their hearts. And even more, they build a shell around themselves and live off mistrust, resentment.
Nobody deserves to live like this, even less in a prison that you create yourself. The key is to start breaking down interior walls : I deserve to be happy, I deserve time for myself, I deserve to enjoy my hobbies, go out into the world, I deserve to laugh and look good.
When you gratify yourself and give yourself what you really deserve, you open yourself up to the world again, you become more receptive to what surrounds you, what surrounds you. Until in the end, when we least expect it, life brings you what you need.
Is magic? Are the invisible strings of the Universe? No, it is maintaining optimism, being receptive, and maintaining a mental and emotional openness.
Beware of high expectations, just let yourself go
Beware of the houses of cards, with “our happiness is forever” and the “no one will hurt me again . ” It is impossible to achieve emotional invulnerability and a fairy tale life where every dream comes true because it is written that way.
Life has no reins, no one can control what will happen tomorrow and even less can we plan unattainable goals. Dreaming is not bad at all, feed our illusion and by extension the strength and resources we use to achieve our goals. However, you have to be humble and learn to let yourself go, with more flexibility.
Now, “letting go” does not at all mean putting on automatic pilot and allowing things to happen the way chance or inertia wants. We are all at the helm of our lives and know which direction to take, and we will guide our days weathering winds and storms. With strength and integrity.
BUT REMEMBER … let yourself be carried away by the gentle winds, get out of your comfort zone and advance through those unknown islands, keep an open mind, your eyes awake and your heart receptive.
Life is not planned, it just happens, but coincidences must be seen because sometimes, LIFE IS NOT SPECIALIST IN GIVING SECOND CHANCES …
