A long time ago I read something that said, “The universe is conspiring in your favor” and at the time I thought it was an interesting thought, one to keep for times when things seem quite the opposite. Over the years when life has presented its many challenges, this obscure quote would pop into my head and give me just the ounce of comfort I needed. The strange thing is, I have no idea who said it or where I read it, but it has stuck with me over the years.
Things, as of late, have been swinging my way and today, when I received more exciting news, I thought about how perhaps the universe really just might be conspiring in my favor. My drive home from work today was filled with gratitude and excitement, mixed with a twinge of fear.
As I was driving these fearful questions started overtaking my thoughts. What if something falls through? What if for some reason something changes? Did I bite off more than I could chew? I hate myself for letting the fear sneak into every moment. I tried to quickly bump the thought out of my mind and just exist in the happy.
This fracture in my personality is something I constantly have to work on repairing and today was no exception. As I pulled up to a stop sign and was trying to get the fear-filled thoughts out of my head, I remembered the quote I had read so many, many years ago and recited it to myself in a tiny whisper, “The universe is conspiring in your favor.” I felt a little of the fear float away in that moment, replaced by the anticipation of all that is to come.
