… but what about what’s not for you? Why doesn’t that seem to pass?
Everything happens for a reason, right? So why do some people try so hard to better and yet the universe still conspires against them.
Time fixes everything… but does it really?
I know I am not the only that thinks this way, but seriously, I know far too many people living lives where these famous cliche “let me help you feel better,” sayings do no apply to them. I question everything you see, blame it on passed experiences and bold face lies, but it’s something I have trained myself to do.
I play devil’s advocate with my thoughts, and I’ve kind of learned to expect the worst, especially with people. There are only 4 people outside of my family that constantly exceed my expectations of the negative and these 4 women still have to put up with my doubt.
Where is all of this coming from Yetti?
I recently re-read The Alchemist, it’s my feel good book… I’ve read it three times, and honestly, I think I may open it AGAIN just to remind myself to have a little faith in myself and my instincts.
But this book, this book spews questionable quotes about life, love, your destiny and the universe. Such as:
“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.“
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.”
“This is what we call love. When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.”
“You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say.”
“If good things are coming, they will be a pleasant surprise,” said the seer. “If bad things are, and you know in advance, you will suffer greatly before they even occur.”
“My Heart Is Afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”
Anything colored in blue is what I question, because what I am experiencing right now… shows otherwise. But I still re-read the book because it gives me faith that something may surprise me one day, and maybe the universe will work with me to help me create my happily-ever after and me rid the things that are poisonous to me. Who knows.
Just some food for thought…
