Teaching a freaking-early class today. And I LOVE it. 5:45 a.m. BodyPUMP 83 here I come
(Why I am I so weird? Does anyone else like this hour to work out in? I like it about 3x/week).
Whatever Is, Is Right
As I was reading a book about spiritual explorations (it’s called Light in the Wilderness), the author (M. Catherine Thomas) made the point that
“whatever is, is right.”
From either a religious side or not, I truly believe that things happen for a reason. I don’t believe in coincidences. For me personally, I know that my Heavenly Father is directing the best course for my life. Whatever happens is best for ME & my learning & growth.
**NOTE: That does not mean it is always easy to take, super fun to go through, and nor that I get to see the WHY right away.**
BUT, with patience & faith in my Savior, and in knowing that tough things have worked out for my benefit before, I can trust that whatever is happening is unfolding for the best.
You can take this gem (from a great book!) to help you BREATHE. Relax. And stop sweating the small stuff.
Sometimes I think our total health is actually in jeopardy: we rock our workouts, we eat the ‘right’ foods, and get a decent amount of sleep (all external ‘measurable’ things), but inside we’re slowly dying.
We suffer. We mourn. We cry. We feel alone. We are anxious.
But everything CAN be okay, because when we accept & believe:
“whatever is, is right,”
we become less anxious, worrisome, and frustrated.
Just trust that whatever trial, hardship, or experience you’re going through is for YOUR benefit. You will be a better, stronger, happier, and grateful version of YOU. And that is what is so awesome about this life!
We’re here to be happy & to learn & grow! Let’s stop wasting our time & moments on comparing, backbiting, being jealous, judgemental, or critical of others (and ourselves). Or even wasting our breathe & minutes on worrying, being anxious, or scared.
True love casteth out all fear, my friends.
And when you look back on your life-I promise you can see something tough that you went through, and then you can SEE the blessing afterwards. It happens OVER & OVER again.
Trust that it will keep happening. Storms may come, but there is always a calm (and rainbow) afterward.
This was written for all my readers as much as it was a reminder for me.
- I am super grateful for people constantly helping me push past my comfort zone. It’s no fun (and boring) to do the same things over & over again.
- I am thankful for my lovely essential oils–they make drinking water more fun. My fav right now is grapefruit with lime. YUMM!
- I am really thankful for slippers on cold mornings.
What is a hardship that was really a blessing later on for YOU?? (my past with ED & disordered eating habits & where it’s brought me) What have YOU learned from letting go, & letting whatever is take its course?? What are YOU thankful for today??
