I have to admit something, I am new to manifesting. I love the idea of it, the idea that our thoughts become things. I love the idea that we create our own reality and all of our wildest dreams really are attainable. But, as much as I love the idea, the reality of holding the key to my own destiny is a little terrifying to me. I’ve lived my life knowing that things happen for a reason. Someone like me might be labeled as a slightly negative person, but I like to think I am more of a realist. I have gone through life with the general philosophy of ‘hope for the best, but expect the worst.” I feel that this idea of knowing and accepting the negative side of things have kept me living a pretty safe life. Somehow life seems a bit easier to think that I have no control of anything, and whatever happens to me is just random luck and there is nothing I can do to change it. I have a job that I enjoy, an amazing husband and three awesome children. Life is good. But, now my eyes have been opened to the knowledge that my good life can be even better. Life can be everything I have ever dreamed with my amazing husband and three awesome kids.
I know what my dreams are, and now I know what I can do to achieve them. But, just when I think I am ready to take the leap of faith and put my trust in the Universe, the realist side of me pipes in. Doubt starts to fill my head, faith starts dwindling and my negative thoughts start to creep in. Who do I think I am? I’m not good enough. I can’t do this.
Manifestation proves that living the life of our dreams is a choice that we all can make. But, taking that leap of faith isn’t always as easy as it might seem. Sometimes people like me need to see the choices laid out in front of them, weigh the options and determine if they are ready to take the leap.
