365 Days of Allowing – My Journey: Day 10 ~Disappointment

Standard

Disappointment…we attempt to avoid it at all cost

Some disappointments sting us a little while others break us down to our knees.

Mine took my breath away for a moment tonight.

I felt let down and a little hurt.

I wondered what went wrong.

My negative self talk kicked in and I began to instantly blame myself for all that is not right in the world.

I wondered what I could have done to have prevented the situation.

I replayed it in my head over and over.

I thought about it, cried about it, got angry about it.

I allowed the disappointment to instantly get me down.

But then I thought about it some more and began to wonder why I was so disappointed.

If I was truly honest with myself the situation showed me very clearly where I stand with the person involved.

It revealed to me some unresolved issues that I have that need to be addressed.

It helped me refocus on what I really desire and therefore what my true priorities should be.

Yes, it hurt a bit but if I truly trust the process and know that all things happen in divine order and for my good then I have to believe that what did or did not transpire tonight was necessary.

In the words of Lori Deschene, “Opportunity often hides in the most unlikely places, but it isn’t easy to see it when you’re disappointed life didn’t meet your expectations. You never know when a disappointment might pave the path for something great. ”

So on that note, I am packing away my kleenex tissue box, washing my face, having a cold ginger ale, and turning in knowing that at the end of the day EVERYTHING HAS ALWAYS BEEN & IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT 🙂

with peace & a greater understanding,

TwinSpirit
