The universe is testing you, keep moving forward

The universe has a funny way of teaching. It’s playful and loves to test us. It wants to see how strong we are mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. It puts us through a series of unfortunate events to see what we will make of it. It asks, “Can s/he rise to the occasion?”

The universe doesn’t do this out of malice but from a place of tough love.

Think about it.

If your life were easy, how else are you going to get stronger?

Trudge forward. The universe grants mercy in our darkest moments. The moments when we encounter that fork in the road when we must decide to give up or push forward. Just after that decision, the world will reward you for your trials and tribulations. That is, if you choose wisely.

When the universe is testing you, keep moving forward and you will be rewarded.

Allow time to do its thing

I tend to get overly excited about many things. Long waits are agonizing, as the anticipation gnaws at my soul and my colorful imagination paints my thoughts. I often have to remind myself to slow down. My friend Galen reminded me yesterday,

“Don’t rush anything. Just enjoy.”

As the best things take time to develop, it is important that we allow events to unfold naturally. (Definitely a test for an impatient person like myself…but it is for the best.)
