When good things happen to you, do you find yourself saying that it is too good to be true, always waiting for the other shoe to drop? Missing out on the moment because you don’t trust it to be real. This used to be me. When good things happened to me, I thought that it would be short lived, or something or someone would come around and take it away. Here is what I’ve learned and what I want to leave you with today. Take this into your heart and know that what I’m about to share is the real deal and comes straight from my heart to yours.
Stop believing that when good things happen to you, it is too good to be true. There is no shoe waiting to drop a bomb on your happiness. Good things, happy things, loving things, are true. Anything that fills your heart with joy and love is true and real. Anything that sets your soul on fire is the real deal. Even when something negative comes along, or something painful, those amazing moments and memories can never be taken away from you. They are a part of you – a part of your soul – a part of your heart. The only way they can be taken is if you give them. So don’t give them away to anyone or anything. Keep them in your happy memory vault. Let the happy moments lift you up when times get tough. Don’t let the tough times take away from the happy moments. Don’t question it, don’t fear it, and don’t wait for it to be taken away.
Revel in it.
Be grateful for the moment because it made you smile, made you laugh, gave you butterflies, or made your heart skip a beat. And remember, it is not too good to be true, it is just true.
Sending you oodles of positivity, happiness & joy,
