Meant to Be

intended to (do or be something).

I am a big believer in what is meant to be, will be. It explains a lot why things work out and why they don’t.

Sometimes we try so hard to make something work and it simply doesn’t. We may put all of our effort into it, got to bat a thousand times, bend over backwards, forwards, and still, it won’t work.

It makes you wonder doesn’t it, why we work so hard on something that isn’t working?

When things are meant to be they are easy. I have seen this happen so many times in my life. In the past I would put effort into things and people that never rendered any type of reward. Now I only allow what is meant to be in my life, because it’s effortless and brings me joy and anything and anyone who is too much work does the exact opposite.

Learning to discern between what is meant to be and what is not is quite easy. If you see one red flag, it’s one too many and a clear sign that there will be nothing but struggle going forward. I saw more than one red flag in my romantic relationships and like many of us, chose to ignore them. You can do this for awhile, but when you have children and they notice them, this ignoring is no longer viable.

What is a red flag? A warning. It’s a pit you get in your stomach. A niggling feeling inside you that alerts you to something not being right. It’s a feeling of unease. It can show up as a lie. If a person can lie once and get away with it, they will do it again and again and again.

What is meant to be doesn’t lie because it doesn’t need to. It just is. It comes into your life for a reason and sometimes we are tested to see if we are really ready for it. A lot of us will blow this test because when you have been heartbroken, you start to distrust your inner guidance and will look outside yourself for answers, instead of within.

When you blow this test, you will be sent another lesson. It will come in the form of Pandora’s box. It might look interesting on the outside and intrigue you, but the minute you open it…yowza! Now you are in another toxic cycle wondering not only how you got there again, but more importantly, how do you get out.

The way out is by trusting yourself. Trusting that inner voice, that inner guidance. In order to hear this inner voice, you have to get quiet. Going in nature can do this, meditating, the beach. You need time to just be. When you close out all the noise, you hear what your soul is calling you to do and not what others are telling you to do.

This is where you become centered/balanced. This is where you take action from. This is where what is meant to be will come to you as though you simply plucked it from a tree, like it was sitting there all along, waiting for you to discover it. And it probably was!

If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be

Let what is meant to be, just be. When you stop trying to control outcomes and just allow life to unfold in the most miraculous way, what is meant to be cannot escape you.
