I hesitate to admit it, but “this, or something better” has kept me quite stuck. Also, “be careful what you wish for.”
In manifesting circles, as we voice our intentions, our desires and dreams, and expect to manifest them in reality, we add on “this or something better” with the understanding that God or the Universe or whatever you believe in knows better than we do what is best for us. Whatever it is we are wishing for, there might be something better, and we certainly want that, the unknown, better thing.
Sounds great, and who am I to argue with those who are more experienced and wiser.
But here’s how it’s kept me stuck. When I’m asking for “this or something better,” I’m not committing to the THIS that I want. Instead of staying and committing to THIS that I just said I desired, I’ve already moved on to the unknown “something better.” I am realizing that, for most of my life, I have not been good at committing. Always wondering, if I commit to this, what “something better” am I missing out on. (yes, I’m single)
The other good one, “be careful what you wish for,” that one’s a doozy. It’s had me in fear over my own desires. What if I really want that house / job / pet / vacation / man and I get it and it totally sucks? Sort of keeps me in indecision and unwilling to commit.
I’ve happened into a lot of my life rather than designed it. I’ve made a lot of safe choices because I had to. I’ve spent a lot of time unhappy, not living the life I want and deserve.
I’ve also made some really, really awesome choices, that turned out spectacularly and lead me to this crazy, amazing life I’m living. Those times when I dared to commit.
“At the moment of commitment the entire universe conspires to assist you.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When you COMMIT to your desires, you amplify your manifestation power. The Universe is there for you, making it happen. Synchronicity happens.
So, what about “this, or something better” and “be careful what you wish for”?
I’ve made good decisions and I’ve made bad decisions and I’ve learned and lived through them all. My best decisions I’ve committed to whole-heartedly and I’ve manifested every one. Most of them were great, some of them were lessons. As I trust in God to support and love me, I trust in my own intuition and guidance about what it is that I desire in life. I’m following my dreams, one step at a time. And if I’m wrong, I’ll learn the lesson.
I’m letting go of living a life I’ve just happened upon and ready to create the life I dream of. Yes, I’m COMMITTING to my dreams. All of it. I’m not being careful, and I’m not asking for something kind of like what I want, maybe better. I am committing to what I want.
I’ll let you know how it turns out.
