Sometimes life really bites. People don’t treat you right. They put you down. Talk about you behind your back. Treat you differently because you didn’t do what they wanted you to do.
It’s best to realize that situations aren’t really about you – it’s about them and where they are at in their spiritual evolution.
Yes, you can always leave because you’re not a tree. LOL
But then you realize that others rely on you. An elder in the community had a bit of a health scare the other day. The community came together to help. We soon realized all that really mattered was that she was OK. We came together for a common cause. I love that!
In another instance, a friend of mine recently needed my help, so I saw it through as far as I could. Eventually, I called in a family member because there was nothing more I could do. In fact, I could feel my whole vibration shift for a couple of days. Yes, I felt bad about it, but realized I had to take care of myself.
Yes, we’re here to help others, but how far do we go. I’ve always believed that when you help others eventually someway, somehow, someday someone will help you. It’s true. When I help one person, I do not expect to receive from that person. I help because I want to. I know the universe sees and has my back.
My daughter helps people too. She drove to South Carolina in a rented truck to pick up a friend and move her back to Florida. She and her boyfriend had broken up. My daughter never expected to be paid back. In the end, like two years later, her friend moved out, which allowed for the cockroaches to move out as well. Yikes!
Life, isn’t always easy. Be grateful. I am grateful for so many things – food, shelter, health, family, friends and even those who are not here for my highest and best. I can learn a lot from those people, mostly not to be like them.
The word grateful has always been a wonder to me. I don’t like the way it’s spelled. It just doesn’t make sense. Grate is to make something into small shreds. Or to make an unpleasant rasping sound. Perhaps, it’s to remind us that yes life isn’t always the easiest, but we can still make a difference, regardless of other people’s antics.
I saw this lovely little quote by Healing Energy Tools on Facebook: ‘Vibrate love. Nothing can happen to you that isn’t meant to be for your highest good.’
I love that! Love is all we need!
