Trust in the universe

Today is my half-birthday. I like to celebrate my half-birthday because I do my annual planning by my birth year, not on New Year, and my half-birthday is the midpoint of my personal year.

Even just since my birthday six months ago, some big things have happened which were not fully on my radar then. I bought a house with my boyfriend and we eloped and got married. Both of these events required a lot of trust: in my boyfriend, in the process, and in the universe.

Chris and I first met March 28, 2019, and in just under a year we are now spouses and homeowners. Some people may look at the timing and think we were moving fast, but we are in our 40s and this is the first marriage for both of us. We knew what we were looking for, we were ready to find a life-partner, and fate took care of the rest.

It can be difficult to trust in fate or the universe. Our thinking-minds believe we can mentally break down problems or situations, when sometimes we just need to sit and wait for fate to bring us a missing piece of the puzzle. Timing is a thing. When we feel stuck, it’s good to take a time-out and notice if we’re missing something and, if we are, remember the moments of synchronicity we’re experienced in the past and trust that the universe will bring us what we need at the right time.

I trusted that I would find my life-partner eventually, and here we are, in our 40s. It was worth the wait.
