Welcome to the Shift: When Things Go “Wrong”

It’s always interesting when things go “wrong” from our point of view. I truly feel as time goes on, terrible things that once perplexed me start to make a little more sense. The undesirable things tend to mix things up and shift your life to something even better. Remembering this important life lesson during trying times is key.

Did you lose your job? Lose someone you love to the other side? Have the bill collections caught up to you? Did that amazing person you want to get to know become unavailable? Good. Feel that. Feel all of it. But then let it go. Let the universe take it’s course. Let the shifting situations around you naturally unfold. 

It can always be scary when we can’t see how things will work out. But that’s what faith is. According to Martin Luther King Jr., faith is taking the first step even though you cannot see the whole staircase. Taking a little step everyday amidst trying situations, that tend to fog up our vision, will lead you to an even better situation. Even in the worst of circumstances, at least you are learning. Have faith that the universe is working in your favor, because it is. 

Mercury Retrograde: It’s All a Part of the Plan


Mercury retrograde is a time for rest, reflection, and revisiting moments in your life. Electronics may go wonky, hence my MacBook that won’t power up today, but it’s okay. Instead of powering through some writing, I took the time to really just be. Life is truly sweet, and while everyone has their seemingly dark days, even those moments seem to bring blessings. 

Being ridiculously happy lately has brought these beautiful moments of clarity. I’ve realized everything I once perceived as “bad” in my life has actually been the very events that led to a very beautiful time. It has given me this inner peace knowing that whatever job I didn’t get, or crisis situation I had to deal with, all of these things led me to this beautiful time of life. When the universe shuts a door or blocks a certain path, take it as a trail marker that you are being redirected to your purpose, because it truly is.

Every dark day I’ve ever had, I’ve managed to see synchronistic signs that helped me believe things were going to be okay. However, not knowing what tomorrow would bring was scary at times. I would go back and tell myself not to worry, that everything was working out beautifully, despite outward appearances. I truly feel in my soul that I knew this to be true, but being on the other side of tumultuous times I would reassure myself that these redirections would just become part of my success story.

Embrace the unexpected, the rejections, and the Mercury Retrogrades in your life. These, too, are here for a reason. đź’—
