Some things just sure are meant to be

Like a river flows … surely to the sea … well, you know how it goes! Some things are sure just meant to be.

There is a really beautiful outcome when you start to develop acceptance of these things that you just know are meant to be. With both negative and positive circumstances in life, sometimes you just KNOW what’s coming and whether you say it out loud or not, there is an inner voice that quietly echoes in your mind “I know what’s going to happen”.

This is incredibly powerful, because it gives you increased reassurance that what is meant to be, is happening. It’s like a little boost of confidence that puts you in a better position of control. Not control of the situation or other people’s actions, but control of your own response. Take for example my month this month. There’s been both a negative and a positive “I know what’s going to happen” moment and sure enough, it has happened.

With the negative, it relates to something that just needs to be finalised. It’s taken way too long and is so incredibly stressful. I can see what life looks like on the other side, I can FEEL the rays of sunshine once this cloud of stress finally moves on completely.

But at our third attempt at finalising for good, I just KNEW there would be a delay. So while family members text asking if the champagne was chilled, and if I was ready to be “free” – I knew.

Instead, I poured a piping hot bubble bath, poured a glass of wine and waited for the deadline to be reached. Sure enough, five minutes to deadline – PING: incoming mail with yet another obstacle to finalisation.

But because I knew it would happen, I could FEEL it would happen, I finished my bath at leisure, drafted my letter to my solicitor and got a good night’s sleep. Had I not listened to my inner voice, then the email could have really thrown an expectation of celebration into a miserable and stressful night.

So, I guess I was already mentally prepped for this outcome.

But does it work as well with the positive, more exciting things in life? I truly believe that we know when something is right, as much as we know when something is wrong. This feeling, however quietly kept, gives us much hope and increases our positive belief in the waiting time!

This month I met with a business start-up for a new contract and just felt from the moment I heard about the opportunity that it was meant to be …

After meeting with several people involved, and waiting through due process, the good news was delivered.

Having the feeling it would be positive did not take away from the good news at all, it just meant that I was so confident this was the right thing for me that being awarded the contract made me all the more appreciative.

Now there’s one more thing I have a feeling about. But I’m keeping that one secret for a little bit longer!

What a woman wants is to be able to trust her inner voice to prep her for life’s events, and what a woman needs to realise is that this powerful intuition is so beneficial for both the good and bad in life.

Take care this month, listen to your inner voice and trust that some things are just meant to be.

With love

Abby
