I have this crazy belief that If you keep your vibration high, then you somehow manage to attract amazingly wonderful things into your life.
Honestly, there is no one who sees the ridiculousness in my claims more than me. I get it, I mean how can you just make things happen by staying optimistic?
In that case, does it mean that if and when things don’t go to plan or unfortunate circumstances arise that it’s because you simply weren’t being positive enough?!
I’m a pessimist at heart. I like to keep things real. But I LOVE to let my soul fly free also and just believe in the possibility that something incredible is about to happen even if negative situations are raining down all around me.
Recently I wasn’t successful in obtaining a place at uni in a midwifery course that I desperately wanted to do. And although it really made me feel awful to think that perhaps I wasn’t smart enough to do it, I didn’t allow my negative feelings to deter me from pursuing something I felt so passionately about.
Rather than waiting, I applied for a course in nursing and midwifery. Sure it wasn’t exactly what I wanted, BUT, it may just help me to get my foot in the door… AND I GOT IN!
It’s Never A Guarantee!
I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT! I mean just because you keep trying to achieve something it doesn’t guarantee that eventually, you’re going to get it, I know this at heart – just like buying a lottery every week doesn’t guarantee that you’re eventually going to win one day.
This was what I wanted, so desperately felt I needed and now that I have started, I feel scared. I’ve got a test on Thursday and no amount of positive thinking is going to get me to ace it. I need to put the work in!
It’s so strange, I love it. My heart is invested in everything that I’m reading and learning but I’m fearful of whether or not I’m retaining all this new information – it’s like learning another language!
I’m hoping that it’s just a matter of remaining focused throughout the distractions. Take this article for example: I began it days ago, but throughout the writing process I was stopped by everyone around me, needing various things from me. And I don’t just mean a little one popping up because they genuinely need my attention.
It’s silly things, like my hubby needing batteries but not being capable of finding them in the battery cupboard where I store my battery box on the highest shelf completely out of reach of anyone. Although it hasn’t moved in over a decade, that man could not manage to locate it. But I get it – he needed to throw a random distraction in my path as the universe’s way of testing whether what I was writing was worth my soul returning to….and I did. Because I love writing!
These unpredictable distractions will always pop up in life I believe, no matter what you’re doing. I feel what truly matters is if you are passionate enough about it to pick it back up, or if the distractions are successful in completely breaking your focus.
I don’t know how I’m going to fair in my test on Thursday, but I do know that through all the various distractions that life throws my way, I will return to where my soul needs to be. I will pick that heavy as heck textbook back up and continue highlighting the life out of it. Because even though my vibrations are low in terms of fearing that I’m going to fail, I will continue to allow my soul to soar in blissful positivity because there is no prize given for thinking the worst – plus I don’t want to attract it!
Sometimes in life you may be left feeling as though you might have bitten off more than you can chew. Whether that be from unplanned baby news, a new job, a new home, an adventure that you leaped into before giving yourself time to chicken out of… But I fiercely believe that if you focus your mind and your soul into picking up wherever you left off each and every time something diverts you from your course, you will still achieve your desired goals.
No matter how much effort I put into something there is no way I could prepare myself for it until my focus was en-point, until my vibrations were strong and positive. Self-belief is something I’ve struggled with all of my life and often still battle with. But I know that with the right mindset anything is possible and I hope if you’re reading this and struggling with any aspect in your life that you are able to look within, find yourself and truly believe that you are going to conquer your challenges, because you truly will!
In life, something is always going to pop up, like my love of writing, or my likeable hubby, or my beautiful little tribe. But hey, I’m getting back to my textbooks right after I write this hehehe.
Send your highest vibrations out, no matter how many distractions try to block their path and always return to the things that make your heart skip a beat!
