What is for you won't go past you

What is for you won’t go past you

whatHave you ever looked at a wealthier friend and wondered why she gets to go on luxurious vacations while you struggle to pay the rent?

Have you ever looked at someone with a fit body and wonder why your love handles just won’t quit, no matter how hard you work out, while they’re over there eating donuts and looking like a Greek goddess?

Have you ever looked on as a witness to all of your friends falling in love while you are still waiting for someone – that undying love – to come to you?

And have these feelings and thoughts ever made you feel like crap because you’re just not sure what you want/need/desire will ever come to you?

Hear this:What is for you won’t go past you.

I reminded myself of that the other day and when I did, I let out a sigh of relief. For as much as I know in my heart that my life is just where I need it to be, I have moments of mild panic  that I am missing out on something. That others have something  I don’t. Or that I’m going to miss out on something and I need to hurryupandgogetit before someone else does.  It could be the oldest child propensity in me for being the first and the best at everything. Or, more likely, it’s my shadow side. It’s the side of me that creeps up and feels like I’ve missed the boat that all of the people with their shit together were on.

Just because someone else has it now doesn’t mean I won’t in the (very near) future.

Of course what is for you won’t just get handed to you…most of the time anyway. You do need to work for what you want. Ask for what you want and you shall receive. But it’s important to not spend your life envying what others have or feeling like you’re missing something or you’re going to miss an opportunity.

The simple truth is, if something is meant for you, it will come to you. You can make it happen, and take the steps to get there. But those steps don’t involve envying and fretting about missing the boat.

I try to remind myself daily that what is meant for me will come to me in divine timing. And until then, I will remain grateful for all I do have in my life and choose to be okay with where I am and what I have now.

Do you ever find yourself worrying about the things you want but don’t yet have? Or that you’ll never have your “must haves” or meet your life’s goals? How do you combat these feelings and fears?

Envy is appallingly common, and is one reason that no amount of “manifesting” training will work… unless it includes elimination of all manner of jealousy. One is repeatedly telling Reality that one’s life is inferior, and so of course it remains that way.

It’s much different if you’re using someone as an example of what you want. Be happy for them, and you’re saying “that’s good, I want that too.”

Lindsay March 21, 2013 at 7:07 pm

You’re so right – being happy for other people and saying “I want that” is so much better than the Green Eyed Monster. Why does envy seem to be our ‘default’ emotion, then? Sometimes my happiness is mixed in with a tinge of envy. Does that negate the happiness entirely? I sure hope not!

Julie Barrett March 21, 2013 at 10:52 am

This made me laugh, thank you!

“What is for you won’t go past you,” is so great.

I don’t suffer from envy so much but sometimes I DO wonder,”How did this get screwed up so badly, and how come there’s more coming down the pike?” Then (nicely) we get shown solutions, when the time is right. It takes patience and perseverence to a degree I really did not know I was capable of producing.

I like what Michael said about being genuinely happy for other people. I do often think like that, and I can see it coming on in for me down the road, when the time is right, maybe. Mostly though I am eliminating even wanting the same kind of things anymore. It’s more about peace, happiness, joy in the morning.

Lindsay March 21, 2013 at 7:08 pm

You sound like such an old soul right now. Eliminating not wanting the same kind of things, getting more to what REALLY matters. I’ve seen you evolve so much over the past couple of years and it’s incredible. <3

Haley Steinhardt March 21, 2013 at 2:05 pm

Thanks for this message today, Lindsay! This is very important for me, too, to remember as I struggle to reach for the next step in life. Trusting that if it’s meant to be, it will be… that is a good reminder. <3

Lindsay March 21, 2013 at 7:07 pm

I feel you, Haley. I really, really do. <3 It's SO hard to trust that if it's meant to be it will be, especially when we want something with our whole heart and soul. Divine Timing is often so hard to understand.

Tatiana March 21, 2013 at 3:03 pm

This is comes at a perfect time.

I got rejected for something that I was looking forward to. I’m sad and not sad at the same time. But I love this idea that what is meant for me will come for me through work and being open and knowing that it’s coming.

Thanks for this!

Lindsay March 21, 2013 at 7:06 pm

I love hearing when articles are perfectly timed for someone. Thank you for letting me know, Tatiana! I am sure your rejection for this something will just keep the door open for something that will be even better. 🙂 It’s a hard pill to swallow when we get the initial “no” and it’s often just in retrospect that we can appreciate the rejection, in a sense.

Jen March 22, 2013 at 5:50 pm

I do this all the time. I’ve run myself ragged trying to “get” and “do” everything before it’s gone or I run out of time. When I’m in this place I say “Dont go all FOMO”(Fear of missing out) and it seems to work. I’m glad I’m not alone. It’s really hard to convince my mind that Divine Timing is a thing, because it thinks that if I’m going to get anything I have to go get it myself through manipulation and control instead of just letting it come to me.

When I was a kid we had one of those really big trampolines, and in the Summer we’d put a tarp over it and cover it with water, essentially making a shallow pool. If you jumped around, the water went everywhere, but if you just sat still in the middle, it would make all the water gather around you, and the weight would cause the trampoline to sag, essentially creating a deeper pool.

Recently my guides have been giving me an image of a man-sized statue of a meditating Buddha (the skinny one) sitting deeply in the middle of all the water, as a reminder to relax and let it come to me, because bouncing around does no good and it just wears you out.

Anne McCarroll March 22, 2013 at 11:59 pm

What a great way to remind me of a universal truth! If it’s for us, it’s coming to us!

I wonder why so often the feeling that we all have is like that ‘I’m five and it’s three days before Christmas -hurry it up!’ Rather than: great! I’m so glad it’s really coming!

Perhaps that idea gave birth to “Patience is a virtue” !! 😉

Great post, L. Great timing, as usual…

Alisha March 23, 2013 at 2:43 pm

I feel the same thing about relationships,they’ve allowed been depressingly low and always end horribly. On one side of my family the women never marry it’s like a family curse . The only thing I want in life is to get married but what if that is my purpose to be by myself even when I don’t want to? Will something always unconsciously reject a healthy relationship if it’s not my purpose even though I fight it?

Jessica March 29, 2013 at 4:21 pm

Never really thought of it the way you put it, but that makes good sense. I do believe that you should visualize what you want out of life and be ready to receive and be grateful every day for what you already have, but never thought of it as what is meant for you won’t pass you by. As others have said, it is sometimes difficult to be truly happy for someone else, rather than being envious, but it appears that is key along with knowing what is meant for you is on the way and it is good. Thanks for posting!

Shawn Ryan April 2, 2013 at 12:43 pm

This is a great post! I have found that daily meditation on being grateful for what I have has helped me keep from being envious of others. Of course, like all people it is easy to see what others have accomplished and wish that I could have the same thing, especially if it was easy for them, but when I meditate, it really does help me keep things in perspective, and like you say “if something is meant for you, it really will come to you.” … Even if it is not in the way you imagined it!
Thanks for the post!
