The Story Behind the Story We Tell Ourselves

What has been my biggest challenge in 2018??
We are closing in to the end of the year, Winter Solstice is now behind the corner. Soon we’ll be celebrating the opening of the New Year and all the opportunities that it will bring to each one of us. Whether we can recognise them or not is down to ourselves only.

Today I have been reflecting on what has been my biggest challenge in 2018 and it wasn’t easy to pinpoint just one. It has been a powerful year, full of change, and every transition has been challenging in its own way.

But the biggest challenge has probably been keeping my eyes on the light ahead as I was walking through darkness.


I found hard to keep faith in abundance in moments when everything spoke of lack.

Despite knowing deep down that the path was the right one, money didn’t seem to want to flow. And faith was crumbling bit by bit.

“Like the air you breathe, abundance in all things is available to you. Your life will simply be as good as you allow it to be.”


So I thought that my biggest challenge in life was with money. I said to myself that I might have some block regarding money. Maybe believing that it’s wrong to have money when so many people don’t, or something like that.

I thought I was not comfortable with abundance of money, and I worked hard to change this belief. But money still didn’t flow.

Well, it did, but more like a trickle than a real flow. We always made it through, but no real abundance showed up.

The issue behind the issue

Then one day it struck me like lightening! The why behind the why…


My issue with money, was not with money at all! It was with happiness. Deep down I believed for so many years that one can’t be really happy in every aspect of life, so something must be sacrificed.

I had chosen money, something I believed I could do without. Happy with my husband, happy with my children, happy with my home and pets. Ok, money will have to be the issue then!

Better to struggle, but being in control of it, than to be happy but risking to loose it any moment!

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.”

I was an amazing moment when I realised what had been going on inside me. Once aware of it, I was able to shift the entire story!

I am the creator of my own reality, therefore I am the creator of my happiness, in every aspect of it. With this in mind, nobody can take my happiness form me unless I allow it to happen.

Guess what?? Money started flowing!!!

You deserve to be happy

Another important piece of the jig-so for me, was accepting that I am deserving of being happy, just like everybody else is.

Happiness is not a finite resource. It’s our very nature and all we are meant to be.

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

I am enough in this moment and I deserve happiness. You are enough in this very moment and you too deserve great happiness!!! Never forget that!

It was a challenge to keep my faith in the path I chose for myself, but I held on to it and I still believe very strongly that I can be, do or have anything I wish!

“If we were talking to you on your first day here we would say, “Welcome to planet Earth. There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have, and your work here, your lifetime career is to seek joy.””
