I’ve found that when we’re so used to things going wrong, we find it hard to accept when things start to go right. It’s almost as if we feel like we don’t deserve it – anything good, redeeming, or safe. Instead of allowing the world to punish us, we begin to punish ourselves. A friend of mine, no matter how much he wants things to be good, does things to dig himself in a hole further. He finds ways to stay in the darkness, rather than stepping towards the light of the door open for him.
Why do we punish ourselves when things are starting to look brighter? We yearn for the good days – when we can laugh and feel safe without worrying about what could go wrong. Yet, when that door opens, we find it hard to step through. I think it’s because we really don’t think we deserve it. We find something to hold onto, just to relish in the pain a little longer. The thing is: if you really want things to get better, you have to let yourself actually enjoy when thingsdo get better.
As this wonderful Card reads, “Open your hands to receive, your eyes to see, and your heart to welcome what’s meant to be.” An opportunity lies at your feet to accept the good things coming your way. I really hope that this ZOX encourages you to let them happen to you. You deserve to be surrounded by all things good.
