Roadblocks are Shortcuts to Something Better than You Had Planned

Today’s Affirmation:
“Roadblocks are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.”

Today’s affirmation is a testament to our ability, indeed, our necessity to turn life’s obstacles into opportunities. There’s an old saying that life is what happens to us on the way to our dreams. We think we are so smart and we have it all figured out and yet life, inevitably, throws us for a loop.

We have a choice. We can sit and pout because things didn’t turn out as we’d scripted them. Or, we can push forward with renewed determination.

Sometimes – as much as we hate to admit it – the universe’s wisdom or God’s is sounder than our own. The very thing that messed up our perfected plans turns out to be the key that unlocks a brand new future.

However, we can’t find that key as long as we view the detour as a curse rather than as the blessing that it truly is. When you see these crazy, unrelated things working to achieve exactly what you’ve been asking for, relax and let the universe work its magic.

May your day be filled with roadblocks ready to transform into shortcuts to your success and happiness.

Follow your bliss! Experience your bliss! Become your bliss!
