After a function last evening, I sat in my friend’s car venting my anger. I was in the midst of playing the blame game towards the facilitator of the event we had just attended. After about a minute or so, it occurred to me to take a different stance. I raised my hands in the air and enthusiastically cheered for myself as I said, “I am now done and I am filled with gratitude for this man’s behavior!” For it was he who placed another piece in my life’s puzzle showing me that as this one door closed, I was making room for another door that matched my current vibration to open up at the perfect time. I couldn’t have been more thrilled.

So often, we have a tendency to have a pity party with ourselves. We harp over the past, sometimes even the distant past as though it were here in this moment of now. When we do that, we never create change. We simply sit reliving painful experiences as though drawing them up once again will make us feel better. Allow me to offer a word to the wise, it never does.

I have said it before and I will say it again, it is never my intention to claim that we must bury our feelings. What I do promote instead is that we deal with each new emotion as they come up. Be genuine with where you are in the present. Then let it go. With each passing situation we have an opportunity to learn and grow—and that my friends, is a good thing!

In my case, I had been attending a weekly event that never really suited me. I wasn’t aligned with how the facilitator was running the show, but I continued making an appearance since I was new in town and I wanted to network to meet new friends. Thankfully, I have met an array of wonderful people due to this event and for that I am grateful.

Yet, in spite of the fact that the Universe had been showing me increasingly larger signs each week that it was time for me to move on, I took note of what I needed to, but continued attending. However, last night the signs practically screamed at me to take notice—one after the other after the other. They could no longer be ignored. There were simply too many.

So after finishing my tirade, I had been set free. I no longer felt the need to return. My journey here was complete and I was prancing on Cloud 9. Perhaps now I was making room in my energetic space for a physical space to show up so that I can offer these events in my own way. I was able to share space in Paris and now I am feeling called that it is time to do the same here. After all, there is enough room for everyone to have their own style and if one way is not aligned with me, I can construct my own. That’s simply how life works.

Remember, we create whatever reality we choose—the good, the bad and the ugly. There is no need to spend time hanging on to what no longer serves us. When we procrastinate, we will simply be presented with an endless parade of uncomfortableness until we stand on our own two feet and make a change. So, that is what I promise to do—to bring to Light the best possible version of me that I can.
