Life Will Always Be Working Out for Me. . .
I like understanding that things are always evolving, and while there are many things that could be better where I am, it is not really a problem because “where I am” is constantly changing to something better. I like knowing that as I look for the best things around me where I am, those things become more prevalent in my experience.
It is fun to know that things are always working out for me, and as I watch for the evidence of that . . . I see more evidence of that every day.

My focus here has recently been on spiritual matters and that sometimes happens when I get into a flow.  It’s challenging to ford that stream.  For those who have been with me from this blog’s inception and those who are late comers should be aware that Wisdom and Life was originally created as Law of Attraction blog.

Spirituality and faith fused themselves into the theme a short time after and became the overriding refrain.  Law of Attraction still hovers over the blog and it finds its way into ALL of my blog columns, but I find that I don’t devote as much time to the theme as I once did.

Abraham Hicks
This is the original source material for the current Law of Attraction wave that is sweeping the world, and it is the 21st century inspiration for thousands of books, films, essays and lectures that are responsible for the current paradigm shift in consciousness.

The above quote from September 18 resonates deeply with me as many times people have asked me if I’m happy where I am.  Wouldn’t you like to go back and change anything in your life?  My answer now is:
No.  I have the best group of friends I’ve EVER had.  I have the PERFECT job.  I live in the town I work in.

What these people who pose this question don’t understand that if you were able to change ANY ONE thing in your life in the distant past, your life would take a completely different trajectory.  I’m reminded of a favorite Ray Bradbury story called:
A Sound of Thunder

You cannot alter history by changing it in the past because one MINUSCULE change in the past will forever alter the future.

Be in the present moment.
Be happy with where you are now.

As Abraham Hicks says:
Where I am” is constantly changing to something better.

IF it is true that where you are IS constantly changing, why would you want to go back and change something back.  Everything you’ve been through, all the challenges you’ve face, all the challenges you’ve overcome has made you who you are.

You should be proud of your life.
You should be able to look back and say:
Wow!  I wouldn’t change a thing.  I’ve learned so many life lessons from what I traversed.

Think about this for a moment:
If you DID INDEED go back and change a challenging event in your life you would also be removing the life lesson you learned from that experience.

Is that something you’re REALLY willing to lose?  You’d be starting from scratch again without the experience on how to move beyond the event.  I don’t know about you, but I certainly wouldn’t want to lose all my experience and have to go through the event I wanted to change.

You’re RIGHT where you’re SUPPOSED to be!

What would you do if given the opportunity to travel back in time?

Be Happy!  Be Positive!  Be Well!
Blessings to you.
