Let’s be honest, navigating disappointment can be as enjoyable as sucking a lemon when you were expecting sweet cake. And as I write this, I am navigating the murky waters of my own disappointment.
But what if we could use that disappointment to help us? Help us become more trusting in our higher self, God, Universe or spirit? No matter the name you give that reflective all-knowing feeling, what if the disappointment was for our benefit?
For example, you set out to go to your hot yoga class – the one that’s super hardcore – only to discover your normal “I’m going to make you hurt” teacher is off sick and her replacement is more “let’s have a gentle flow” kinda girl.
Or the time you spent a fortune at the hairdressers getting your hair done, laid down your credit card for some fancy underwear for your romantic weekend away and… your partner sprains his back so the weekend turns into triage.
Or what if you have been using ALL the manifesting tools – journaling, showing gratitude, meditating, heck, even your vision board is a magical sight to behold?
