“It’s too good to be true.” Have you ever said that?

It seems to apply to a myriad of situations. It looks like you’ll get the job you were wanting. Someone offers to pay a bill for you. Your spouse cleans out the basement without you having to ask. It all sounds so suspicious. Or does it?

A friend of mine is in the early stages of budding romantic relationship and her mind is racing with the “what if’s”. “What if he’s a deviant?” “What if he’s secretly married with nine kids?” The scenarios kept getting more ludicrous. Eventually I told her, “Instead of seeing this as something that has 50 ways of going wrong, why not see it as having one way of going very right?”

I mean, it’s really gotten silly. When did we stop trusting goodness? When did miracles become suspect? Something wonderful happens, and suddenly we’re watching our backs.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live my life being wary of my blessings. As my fellow blogger Gabrielle Bernstein often says, we should “expect miracles”. We need to act as though a good thing could and will happen at any moment. Why not? We prepare for disasters. We should prepare for triumphs even more.

So, the next time something wonderful happens to you, instead of dissecting, over analyzing and rejecting it, try this: enjoy it. Yeah, go ahead! Revel in it. Talk about it to your friends. Think about it fondly. It’s a gift from the universe just for you; so give yourself permission to unwrap it and roll around the happiness.

A late evangelist often said the phrase: “Something good is going to happen to you.” Believe that today, and when it does, take that moment to celebrate.
