Oh boy! I laughed out loud with that quote when I read it, Erika. Opportunities usually come disguised as disasters, upsets, turmoil, and whole lot of pain. There are other opportunities as well, the lovely kind, thank heavens. We grow the MOST when we are challenged and pushed out of our comfort zone to face those enemies within. LOVED this quote!! Thank you! xo

Whatever life provides for us has its meaning. Nothing happens just so or accidentally. In being aware of that fact, we will recognize better the blessing or purpose behind it. And even if not, will it make us stronger to face the challenge. Thank you for stopping by, dear AmyπŸ’–

It is indeed dear lady, and like my post on contrasts, those things that come along ARE those contrasts in who and what we currently are, they come along so we can see where we are at. I probably didn’t explain it too well in that post but every moment always shows us ‘us’ so that we can take another step, regardless which way it is…it will always contrast us in what we have done…or not πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

This makes absolute sense since everything we see is a reflection of how we see things. So, everything we experience, will we experience individually. Two people can encounter the same situation but is is not the same since they don’t feel the same about it. So, all that happens reaches exactly that place in a person that pushes them forward!

Me too, I am amazed time and time again that this works in such perfect orchestration. Then I often think how small-minded we are to judge the universe/God for what happens since we cannot judge it at all!

Haha, every time I say to myself I ‘know’ something, love comes along and blows me away. As I let go of this world (in awakening), it allows an ability to go through so much more. Another journey where before was to find that awakening, now it is understanding that awakening. Like wishing and hoping for a chocolate, then receiving one and relishing in the actual taste πŸ˜‚ Ferrero Rocher has a lot to answer for, but then again maybe that’s just training for another type of awakening 🀣

Oh, that sounds so familiar πŸ˜… Never tell life you understood and it will teach you more… lol. But then again, that is how we progress… haha. So what πŸ˜…
Enjoy your Ferrero Rocher… as long as possible πŸ˜‚

Ah, yes, and that is the reason people rather waiste their money for lottery tickets but for working on themselves and therefore, for better paid jobs…

Haha, I’ve been gladly knocked over by something from waaaaay out of left field Erika. Somehow they taste so much sweeter because of it. Great post dear lady, may your ‘left field’ always be open πŸ€£β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

I’ve been trying to encourage a friend of mine who has been asking for a change in her life for the past 2-3 years. She is β€œfrozen” with fear to do it. She keeps thinking everything has to be perfect before she’s ready. I listen and try to support her, yet it looks as though she will never take the leap. Any suggestions?

Liked by 2 people

I remember you mentioned it once and I know you are very concerned. I think this all is even more difficult for perfectionists… because for a perfectionist nothing can ever be perfect enough. Or it is only an excuse that they don’t need to start that new journey. However, they keep themselve from living the lives they dream of.
I don’t now, whether I can suggest something here. It seems she is very locked up in her attitude. Often it is the fear to fail or to leave a security net. It is always risky to start something new! Always, but if you really want it with all your heart, it will work because it is you who you are and who you are meant to be. Otherwise you would not feel it.
I meant “you” in general here. I don’t know if that helps but that is what flew out of me. Let’s see, what Mark thinks.

Honestly, I have β€œstepped out in fear and faith” both as a single adult and a married adult. She is single and has a need for a β€œguarantee”. But that’s not really faith, is it?

No, not at all, at least not in my understanding. Who am I to say, where she comes from. But I think that fear and a lot of self-doubt may speak loud inside of her. I don’t know what needs to happen to make her break that shell but as longs as she doesn’t feel it herself, talking may not be of any use. I think you can only repeat what you already said to her.

Where she needs to go is the ‘why’ of her actions. Ask her why she fears to go or do anything without ‘everything’ being exactly as it should. Ask her how it makes her feel to be pushed into doing something without these things being done. Then if she can be honest with herself follow that back to her childhood. Where in her childhood did this happen, where she was rejected by parent/s for some action/no action and felt very hurt or unloved by it.
Now you have to be very careful here because as a child we can go very far in covering over that pain and asking her to look behind that wall we all build can get some very strong reactions. Even to the point of pointing the finger at you, yelling screaming and walking off to never speak to you again because you are accusing her of this or that.
Which also means you’ve hit the nail on the head. Anger or a very upset reaction means your at the place that needs to be seen. Some people are so afraid that they will swear black and blue that the love between them and their parents is smooth, beautiful with not a problem whatsoever…until I touch something and suddenly a crack appears. They will throw something out about them not doing this or that or making them feel a certain way. That is where she needs to go. BUT…if she isn’t ready she will deny or do the anger thing. And it may not be for you to go there with her…but…you have moved her. Even in that it is worth its weight in gold.
And most, not all, will not be ready until later in life. They have to live that pain so that they can see, truly see, who and what they are and find that love within them. That self love that had been trod into a world of self doubt and takes a very long time to understand and appreciate by going through all our dark tunnels of life.
Sorry Gail, nearly did a post. The best thing would be to ask her does she love herself…and when she says yes, then ask her to go where she has been hesitating. If she says no, then take her back inside herself but again, please be careful. A lifetime of being a certain way has some strong reactions. But if it is the right time/place it will flow πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

Mark, that makes more sense than you may realize. She is from Romania. Most, if not all of her family, still lives there. She is in New York City, which we have seen has taken a turn for the worse in the past two years. Crime has risen to a serious degree, which is her top issue
in moving elsewhere. She is so afraid of what is happening there that she believes it is just as bad everywhere else. Fear is keeping her from moving forward.

I don’t want to push between your discussion but only want to say, how much sense this makes, Mark. I don’t know her but it is obvious that fear plays a big role. Finding out where the fear is rooted may lead pretty close to the keay that opens that closed door that keeps her from living her life. The crucial question is indeed: What does she fear about that step? I can imagine well that even asking herself that question may feel overwhelming in the beginning since she needs to look at something she tries to avoid with all might… which in the end keeps her stuck at place. She needs to be patient with herself but also strict … both are aspects of love since they lead to a huge breakthrough and that is always painful until it happens… Love heals from which side ever you look at it. And Gail gives so much love that this too is carrying her closer because she feels taken serious which is most important.
So, that was it from me πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

Now that is a bit different. Yes our fears come from our childhood and we carry them forward into everything. But in this case it may just be that being without family is keeping her without confidence (still a childhood thing), in this circumstance. It isn’t a great thing to be alone in a city with all that going on. And I mean that even if she has friends etc, family are those connections when we want to really express something as we don’t want to seem not confident even with great friends. But if you are one of those heart to heart friends then bring her to those fears. Let her have the confidence of at least talking about what is wrong.
If you would like to be a bit more detailed Gail please feel free to talk to me on the ‘Contact Me’ up on my menu bar at my site πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

Spot on Erika, it does take a push from ourselves to take that step beyond that fear. And it is a child’s fear, always kept in place so we are ever on guard for it but as we age we just keep it in place, never resolved. It does have a great purpose though, because again that contrast between who we are and who we want to be will always poke us to take another step. Love is indeed a very powerful thing and Gail being there for her can give her confidence to take that step πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

I think because my family essentially left me to fend for myself without a safety net, I had no choice but to move forward. I certainly didn’t want to remain β€œstuck”, so to speak.

Your path did not leave you any choice but giving up or standing up. I am glad you choose the standing up path. Today you see the rewards of your decision πŸ’–

“it is a child’s fear” that is the big point. Because a child takes what it gets (mostly) since it doesn’t know any better. Following rules and adjusting is part of its survival instinct. But over time this all sinks deeper and the adult does not remember again, that it was the child that buried something. That makes is so diffuse and scary, and so difficult to get there again. The deeper down the more efforts it needs. But as you said, it does have a purpose. Only when we forgot who we are, can we rediscover our light which is the big reason we have come here πŸ’–
