Coffee Conversations: It's all GOOD

I'm sitting here in my brother's room, blogging and enjoying the last few hours of the long weekend with my Siamese cat sleeping soundly on his bed. "Isn't it a wonderful day?", I asked him. He raised his plump apple- shaped head and let out a silent "meow", which to me was his cute way of saying "Yes." I gave his fluffy body a soft squeeze and it sent him sleeping pronto. Ah! I can't get enough of my cat!
I remember, last month, I got four projects. I was on a high 'cuz I've never gotten THAT much projects in one month-That means I am 4 steps towards reaching my financial goal for this year. "God is good", I told myself.
Alas, one project got cancelled. And the three others? Well, still no updates on them whatsoever, and it has been a month already. Let's just say, they're as good as Cancelled. That means I'm 4 steps backward from my 2013 financial goal. But I'm still hopeful.
If I were the Martha before, I'd go: FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU%@$$@#$@##$@#$@#$@#$@$@$@$
But nah, I'm a grown up now. Cursing and wallowing are for kids. Well, I'd be lying if I told you that I wasn't saddened by this.
And then I came across Joe Vitale's quote:
"Some things that don't happen keep disasters from happening. Think about it-what you're being asked to do is TRUST. Trust that when something happens, it's good; and trust that when something you want doesn't happen, it's good too."

Whew! That made me feel good! It makes a lot of sense, really: I could've flunked those projects. I could've met an accident while I was on my way to their events. I could've burned bridges by some unfortunate incident or unexpected conflict.
But my ego's telling me that: You could've proved yourself! You could've been closer to your financial goal! You could've been great!
So many voices inside my head. So many COULD'VEs. But I went for the advice of the grown-up Martha: I am letting go of my attachment to these projects, and I'm now moving forward, bringing with me all the values it has imparted to me-But if they happen, it's good. If they're not really meant to happen, then it's all good too.
There are so many opportunities that come our way, but not all of them are meant for us to do. You might go and ask, "If it's not for me, then why did it come my way?" It is because those opportunities that didn't happen don't only prevent disasters from happening, (as what Joe Vitale has said) but they're also meant to teach you the value of perseverance, tolerance, faith, and above all TRUST. In the end, you didn't lose anything, right?
I feel better now-much, much better. God is good indeed. Happy Easter again, everyone. :)
