That's what I was thinking until the Universe or God or Whoever sent me a message.
Sometimes we can get caught up in the negativity of the world. Yeah sometimes people suck.
But most of the time they don't. When we are having a particularly trying week, you might start to believe this. We say it in our heads, we notice more when people are at their worst. It can become a negative mantra of sorts.
If it really gets stuck in your head, it can turn into a belief. Growing up my dad had this belief. And it really brought him down. You start just seeing the negative and you miss out on the positive.
For me, I truly believe people are mostly good. This doesn't apply to everyone because there are plenty of people who do bad things. Unfortunately, news is filled with this. There is not a balance of headline with people doing amazing great things.
So as I was going along having this false statement of people suck in my mind when BAM...
2 Messages come to me:
The first one "You're only human" a direct quote to me from a very loving and kind Thai Yoga Bodywork client of mine who I had forgotten to put on my schedule when I was sick and who waited for me to come in after she kindly texted me to see where I was and gave me time to get my butt to the studio to see her.
Yep I am human. I tell people that all the time when I am teaching yoga. I'm blessed that there was someone there to remind and reflect this back to me. Because it's a lot easier to say this to others than it is to say it to our self.
And message two, came through just a day later. A stranger bought me a coffee. I never saw this woman before. She was in line ahead of me. I smiled at her and said hello. I ordered and she quickly presented a gift card on her phone. My thoughts changed in an instant. So many questions popping in to my head all at once....
Did she sense I was having a bad week? Was she just planning on buying a stranger coffee that morning?
I was stunned at first. I did turn toward her in time to thank her as she walked quickly out the door.
I continued to process and felt perplexed and full of emotion. I had to hold back tears. Were they tears of joy? Relief? Happiness? A combination?
People don't suck. Of course, I know that. Thank you! Is all I can say to Universe or Whoever sent me the message. I am grateful that I was mindful enough to realize these messages and reset my thoughts. I want to believe people are good at their core.
Did you ever get a message from God or the Universe? How was it delivered? Did it give you hope?
