It’s quite easy to say you trust the universe when things are going well. It’s when things are not going your way (or the way you envisioned them) it becomes a bit of a challenge to just surrender and believe that everything is going to be fine.
Here’s the thing. I know that everyone is struggling at one point in their lives. Most likely there are a few speed bumps in the way. The older you get, the more experience you have overcoming those bad times, and as bad as they seem at the moment, you’ve always managed to get yourself out of them somehow.
To deal with any sort of struggle takes everything out of you, and the sadness and the pain often paralyze you to the point where you just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. All hope is gone and you have nothing left to give. So you surrender. That doesn’t mean that you give up. You just stop using your energy to put up a fight, a fight you can’t win. You surrender to the universe, to something bigger than you. And then something happens. By accepting what is you suddenly start to follow the natural flow of your life again and eventually things start looking up.
All it takes is a little bit of trust.
