Trusting the universe is something I struggle with, not when things are shitty and I’m discouraged. It’s when things are going well that I get in my head. I think it’s because I’ve “almost” done many things.

I’ve come close to many of my greatest goals but always been blocked by some external factor. The smell of good things brewing scares me like finally kissing someone you’ve had a crush on forever but knowing they have a pattern of being unavailable.

I think this is the hardest thing about running toward your dreams, knowing when to run and when to be still. Trusting the universe doesn’t mean to sit on your couch and cross your fingers. It requires bust your ass hard work. But also to let go of things beyond your control. Many people are not going to feel you or your ideas. You will get many passes. But it only takes one to change everything. That first domino is the most important.

And you have to practice patience. Because things never happen in the time you want them to. Which has always been a struggle for me. I’m sure for you too. So I have to remind myself to do what’s honest to me and work hard at it. That’s the only thing I can control. And the rest I must let go.

Because the things that are meant happen effortlessly. And when they come, they will not look like you imagined. When I look back at my life, the miracles that have happened have always entered my life like a breeze, that I only notice when I’m not thinking. There is no announcement. Announcements come from humans.

Now let’s talk about you. What does trusting the universe look like? Do you struggle with it? When do you know you should run toward your dreams and when do you know to be still? What does being still look like for you?
