I am reminded again that every moment, every encounter is a lesson. Sometimes those lessons are not as clear as we would like. Sometimes the lesson doesn’t reveal itself right away. Sometimes, you think you’ve got a grip on the lesson, only to learn it is something completely different.
This weekend I had an situation that I completely misread. At first I believed that this was the Universe handing me chance to take advantage of a missed opportunity. Something that I wished I had taken advantage of some time ago, but allowed self-doubt to hold me back. So naturally when this opportunity was presented again, I jumped at the chance! It was a comedy of errors that lead to this moment….surely it was “meant to be”.
I have relied on my intuition for some time, if there is something off in any situation I feel it. Of course there have been times that I have chosen to ignore my instincts….Which usually results in solidifying my resolve to listen to that inner voice, cause it has my back always. I can’t recall a time where there wasn’t even a little warning. I’ve gone over and over in my mind trying to figure out what I missed. Nothing. There was not one sign that said “Turn and run”. I’m at a loss.
So now, what I thought was a lesson in missed opportunities, turned out to be quite the opposite. Honestly, I’m really not sure the clear message I need to get from this. Maybe it’s that I should have accepted that the two previous missed opportunities were missed for a reason. Is it that my instincts are off? Did I somehow turn off my natural intuition that I have relied on for so long? Is it that I should walk away from opportunities that are represented to me?
I guess I’m going to have to thank on this awhile longer. Something tells me this might be about a little self-control…and learning to just say “no”.
