Trust is defined as confidence, faith or hope in someone or something. An example of
trust is believing that the sun will rise in the morning.
One morning as I was driving to work I started to ponder about trust. I asked myself if I really trusted God, the universe or however you prefer to call it. I had to make an important decision in a very difficult situation. I felt completely overwhelmed. The more I kept thinking about different scenarios in my head the more emotional I became.
See everything starts in your thoughts. Worry, doubt and confusion starts with a negative thought. Once we buy into it, chaos takes over. This is one of the reasons why I love the work that I do. I coach myself through every situation that comes my way.
That morning as I was driving, I started to do my morning affirmations and one of them was… God I trust you. This is an easy statement to make . The kicker is actually applying it to your life. So, I asked myself questions like; do I really know what I’m saying or what I am even asking for? Do I really know what trust is or what it means to me? Do I ever truly trust anyone or anything? What is required of me to live up to this word? Am I willing to do what it takes to really live up to those standards or are these just empty words?
I take my commitments to myself seriously. If i’m not sincere with myself who am I going to be sincere with? This is all an inside job. You will begin to see yourself making progress the moment you stop making excuses and start taking responsibility for your own life.
Remember, that you are the creator of your own story…what would you like your life story to be like? Then take action towards your desired goal and stay committed no matter what chaos you might be experiencing outside of yourself.
If you wait for the perfect conditions to be happy, I’m sorry to say that day might never come… I waited for that to happen in my life for years!! See we create based on how we feel. If you want happiness you most choose to be happy now so that you can create more happiness. My friend, everything is a choice and that’s real freedom!
On that day, once I decided to trust that I was going to be taken care of and that everything was going to work out as it should. I had the responsibility to let go of worry, anxiety and release the attachments to any and all outcomes. In that moment I knew that the bottom line was that my assignment was to let go of ALL CONTROL. Everything was connected.
That right there, took me to another level of understanding and personal growth. I said to myself, “Wow. I have been taken care of all along, but I already knew that! What’s my deal?” I stopped and felt compassion for myself. I finally understood where my lack of trust came from. Most of my life I had to take care of myself because the people who I trusted let me down. I became a very strong and independent woman that could get her own!! Thats why!! Now that I know that I have to rewire my brain in the right way, starting by letting go of the past and forgive anyone who ever let me down.
Well that day was very emotional, but I finally had a breakthrough. This my friend is a lifelong evolution process. Learning to be gentle with yourself as you grow is very important. Understand that each season in life is different. A unique approach to each situation is necessary. You can’t keep using your old tricks and expect new things to come into your life.
Well my friend, I hope this was helpful for you. May you be blessed in every season.🦋💚
Much love and blessings,
