What I Think I Want or What I Really Want

Last year I decided I wanted a house.  I set up my affirmations and dream board then set my goals to do what I needed to do in order to buy one.  I thought that was what I wanted.  Now I’m not as sure.  While things have progressed and I’m getting close to having everything in order, I’m suddenly given a setback.  Remembering all the things my mentors have told me about staying the course and not giving up, I try to get back to that feeling of accomplishing what I intended.  But something else is going on.  Taking a look at some of the things that are happening, I have ask myself, is this a sign from the Universe or is it just a fear?  Is this what speaks to me deep inside or is it just a safe thing to go after?  To be honest, at this point I don’t know but it did bring up this question, especially after reading an article by someone else experiencing a similar situation.

How do we recognize the difference?  Being consciously aware means being open and accepting to everything that happens while looking for the meaning and being grateful.  I feel like the proverbial man looking at the fork in the road.  Do I take the road less travelled?  It’s the one with unknown challenges but more adventurous.  How brave am I?  Acting out of faith is not my strong suit but isn’t that the point?  To be alive and know everything will work out.  At least that’s what I affirm everyday, “Things always work out for me.”

Whichever way I go, it’ll be the right decision because in the end, the Universe will guide me.  Aah, faith, the ultimate frontier.
