When Things Aren’t Working

“When Things Aren’t Working”  was written by guest contributor Babajide Faseyi.

The automatic thing that we do when the 1st thing isn’t working is that we begin to worry a little bit. Then when the 2nd thing isn’t working, we worry a little bit more. And then when 3 or more things aren’t working is when we take off running for the hills in our minds.

Why shouldn’t you worry when things aren’t working? You shouldn’t worry because remember that as wonderful and as meaningful as your life is, your life is still only one story. Your life is a story that is still being told.

Any story will have its ups and its downs, naturally. Sometimes an up does not come right after a down. Sometimes a story has to go down, down, down, and then it might go one up, before it might then go one down again.

What we are doing when we worry is trying to predict when an up is coming after a down has already come. What we can do instead is to know that the ups will eventually balance with the downs. And if we keep a good, non-worrying head on our shoulders, we may eventually find that the ups become more than the downs.

We can even get to the point where the ups aren’t ups anymore and the downs aren’t downs. We are simply content with life as it is and we are grateful for the good things that are already available to us. It is then that joy itself would have not only visited our hearts, but will have made our hearts into its own very home.

Blessings, Babajide

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi.  I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19.  In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search.  I read voraciously.  After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now.  And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.  The links to my facebook pages where my writings are posted are –facebook.com/bababajide and facebook.com/babajideinc.
