Anonymous said: DB, it's kind of spiritual question.. But do you believe in the power of the universe? Like, do you believe some things are "meant to be" and the universe has a way to make them happen? Also do you believe we receive the things that we give and the energy we put out there? Because I used to believe in all that but lately I feel like I just keep getting bad energy in my life and I'm so tired of being sad and it just feels hard to believe there's something out there balancing our lives..
Yes yes yesss I actually had a long conversation with someone this weekend about all of this kind of “stuff” and you said pretty much exactly how I feel. I completely believe in energy, and “the universe” as a whole, I don’t believe in God or anything like that but I know there is something more than us. I think we receive back what we put out, too, but I also think we get what we need and sometimes we don’t even realize it. Also everyone gets what they can handle- we are pushed right to our limits and then we end up being way stronger and more dynamic people. So, maybe things are shit right now and you’ve been really sad, but it’s for a reason. The good and bad are both meant to be. You’re learning how to cope, how to manage, how to grow, how to keep going when things aren’t perfect. There IS balance though, and things will look up again and I’m sure you’ll have a moment (or hopefully plenty) where it all makes sense and you sigh and think, “That was all totally worth it.” But with that said, as much as I believe in things being meant to be and energy, I also believe in working hard and going after things. You can’t just sit there and expect the universe to hand it all to you- it’s a balance between having faith and working. So no matter what, keep trying to put out positive vibes (fake it ‘til you make it!!), keep working toward your goals, and don’t doubt that it will all be ok. I know it’s not easy though, trust me. Good luck and big kiss :)
