“On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, know that with the right tolls and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.” ~ Yehuda Berg
Have you ever gotten to a point that you want to give up, throw in the towel or just “settle” for something because nothing seems to be working for you?
Whether a relationship, finances, a job or any anything else you’re searching for in life, it’s likely you’ll encounter obstacles and hardships along the way. Often these things make us want to give up, but often they’re just getting us closer to our goal or desire.
When you get to this point in your journey, don’t give up, open up. Open yourself up to the universe. Ask for help, patience and understanding. There may be someone in your circle of contacts that you can ask for help or guidance. Let them know you’re at the “give up” point and need someone to help you figure it out. Most importantly though, open up to possibilities, to trusting the universe to send you what you need and to believing in yourself.
Giving up is taking the easy way out in most cases. There are times when changing direction or stopping something is the right answer. Don’t give up out of frustration, take a deep breath, clear your head and heart and open up.
Let me tell you a story about a friend of mine: She had dated many people and was tired of the dating scene, going on blind dates and “wasting time” with people that were not right for her. She decided to open up to the universe. She wrote a letter that said, “Dear Love of my Life, Thank you for your timeless patience in waiting for me. I know you are out there somewhere. I promise that when I am done finding myself I will come and find you.”, she signed it and posted it on her Facebook page for everyone to see. Just three short months later, quite by chance, she met the love of her life. They are planning their future together. She had forgotten she had even written that letter until a few months into her new relationship when she came across it.
It really is amazing how the universe works. When you decide not to give up, but to put your honest and true desires out to the universe and trust that they’ll be answered, you’ll be amazed at how things begin to happen for you.
