The universe is constantly working in your favor. You might not see it. It may feel like the universe is working against you, like you never get what you want. But I firmly believe that if something does not go your way or you do not get what you want, it is because that is not what you need. The universe has your back. You need to trust that everything will work out just how it should.

Trust in the universe while actively creating the life you want. What you put out into the world is the energy you will receive. Go after everything you want. You must put effort into everything you do, but know that everything happens for a reason. At the end of the day, what is meant to be, will be.

So, you fought for that relationship, or you desperately wanted that job, and it did not work out. It does not mean you don’t deserve good things or that you did not try hard enough. It means the universe has bigger plans for you. You are destined for so much greater. Don’t give up.

You deserve to get everything you want out of life. So go after all of your dreams and desires. Just know that the universe offers you protection, and every situation and every person you meet serves a purpose. Do not get discouraged when something does not work out for you. Let it serve as a lesson and reminder that what we want is not always best for us, and what we think we need now may not promote long-term happiness and positivity.

Life has taught me that missed opportunities are more disappointing than failure and rejection. Make the active decision every day to decide that you will go after everything you desire. Put your wants and needs above your fears and anxieties. Choose to fight for what you want because you deserve everything you want out of life.

It is naïve to think that life will provide for us if we do not actively participate in it. To get what you want, you must go for what you want. So, start building the life of your dreams. Say yes to those plans, connect with someone new, and apply for that new job. Life is truly what you make it, so make it yours. Wake up every day and vow to yourself that you will provide the life you want for yourself. The universe will offer you protection, but to know if you are on the right path, you must follow your dreams in whichever direction they take you. The universe will guide you in ways you cannot see. Life is short, and you owe it to yourself to walk through the doors the universe has opened and see if it leads you on the right path.
