Tale of Two Vibrations
I know someone whose life has been really challenging.
She grew up poor in a very conservative and notoriously close-minded culture, and spent most of her life not feeling good enough.
Her passions in life weren’t respected or encouraged by others; she often felt like the square peg trying to fit in a round hole; and feelings of fulfillment or satisfaction were foreign to her.
As a result, in her adult life she continues to struggle: her life partner is the kind of guy that friends express sympathy for having to live with, her chosen industry is riddled with financial challenges, she recently lost $90,000 in real estate investments, and her health is far from ideal. (She has no health insurance, to boot!)
I know another woman whose life was just about the exact opposite.
Her loving parents did a wonderful job raising her to be strong and happy, her environment supported her success at every turn, she often felt like the golden child as everything seemed to go her way.
(Scholarships, awards, raises, promotions, an abundance of rewarding relationships, etc.)
As an adult, this woman experiences unending happiness, in both “big” and “little” ways. Her sweetheart is open and devoted (many of her girlfriends wonder how she got so lucky), she’s incredibly successful at her chosen career, she lives in a beautiful and luxurious home, she’s financially secure and has everything going for her health-wise.
What’s the difference between these two women?
They are the same woman.
Each version could easily qualify as “the truth.” But there’s a vast vibrational difference between each one.
And that’s how it is for EACH of us.
We can tell our story any way we like – and it’s all true. You can tell me your sad story, or you can tell your happy one.
Which version would you rather live?
The thing is, your happy successful version is already a reality. You don’t have to create amazing new manifestations before you count yourself as blessed. You already are. And if you don’t think so, you just haven’t been practicing that version.
It’s simply a matter of which perspective you attend to.
No matter where we stand, there is a way to see life as already wonderful.
So the next time you hear me complain about how my boyfriend doesn’t scoop litter boxes and refuses to watch subtitled movies, you’re invited to give me a little reality check in the bee-hind and remind me that life is really, really good.
You can count on me to do the same for you. 😉
FYI on my “woe is me” version: I purposely don’t carry health insurance and the $90k real estate “loss” comes from a tax appraisal thingy in yesterday’s mail listing significantly dropped values on two houses I own. I couldn’t care less, but if I wanted to, I could sure get my panties in a twist about it!
My advice: choose your version wisely. Your present and future happiness depends on it!
