The time will come, Corinne, and it will be sooner rather than later, when your greatest admirers and protégés will look at your life – your achievements, possessions (especially your book published), and passions – frown a little and sullenly say, “Yeah, but for you… it was easy.” At which point you should conceal any yearning you may possess to either object or laugh hysterically. Instead, lovingly look them square in the eye and say, “Yes, and it can be easy for you, too.” – The Universe
That’s the message I received today in my inbox from the Universe, via Mike Dooley, of course. Other subscribers to the TUT updates will tell me that they got the exact same thing – but who cares, it has my name on it doesn’t it?
I can be cynical about this message, but I want to believe it (especially the part about the book being published) and I do.
And the part about it being easy, I believe that too. Because it is. Once I discovered that I can plug in to the Source, things do seem easy. I see myself moving, almost effortlessly towards my dreams. Not that everything has been going according to my plan, but I know that everything is going according to THE PLAN. And the more I accept that, the more easy it becomes.
It is not what actually happens to you, but how you begin to process things that happen that makes it easy.Click To Tweet
What if we just acted like everything was easy?
– Mary Anne Radmacher
And yes, it can be easy for you too, once you believe that everything that happens to you is good.

I always believe that whatever happens it happens for good.. that helps me stay positive in life. And I am sure this year we will read your published book.
Mike Dooley was the medium for you, Corinne, and you are the medium for us in delivering the Universe’s messages. I tell myself ‘It is easy for me’ and also ‘People around me are the most co-operative.’
How wonderful it would be if all of us start getting messages relevant to us directly from the Universe in our inboxes! Let us imagine the possibility 🙂
I do believe that no matter how hard the process may be, once it is in the rear view mirror, it is all awash in grace, and we find that we have been carried.
Starting Monday with your positive blog is just awesome and gives me nice vibes Corinne
Excellent inspiration for a Monday morning! 😀 May all your plans come to fruition, Corinne.
That message indeed seems to be a message from the universe :))) Let just believe it was for you, well, it did make you feel good:) .. I quite agree that it isnt always events, but our reactions to events the shape the course of many things- our thoughts and our beliefs…
Whatever happens is for the best – there’s a lot of power in that statement! It may not always be easy to see that, but if we look closely, there’s almost always a silver lining to every grey could.
I totally believe in the statement “I know that everything is going according to THE PLAN.” As it is HIS PLAN, we often don’t understand and crib when things don’t fall in place the way we want but at the end of the day, it is HIS way to get things done and its perfect.
How very true! Everything happens for a reason and everything provides us with an opportunity. I like this idea of thinking that it is easy. I have been under the clutches of nothing is working out for so long and believe me nothing has been working out as far as my mind is concerned. So now I will change the wording and see how it goes. Thank you for this, Corinne. If you happen to read my #MondayMusings post you would know how grateful I’m for delivering me even the slimmest of hope. <3
How true the words of the Universe are, indeed, Corinne Ma’am.
I’ve learnt to stay optimistic & believe in my abilities quite recently. That also makes me ignore negativity quite easily with this belief & stay unruffled. And yes, it makes everything EASY for me when I let myself the space I deserve sans the overwhelm.
Thanks for this much needed motivation!
Acceptance is the first step towards a fresh perspective of looking at things. I have started acknowledging, accepting and moving on from a lot of things that I have an issue with. I have stopped feeling guilty about not writing as much as I used to but I also know that I’m catering to my mental state. Somehow, it is always easier to move forward once the feeling of acceptance sets in.
This sounds like the ol’ “fake it till you make it,” but it’s worth a try! I may add this to my New Year’s resolutions. On the other hand, it conflicts with my, “Stop letting everyone think it’s so damned easy a little batch script could do it,” plan. I’m conflicted, now.
