“La goutte d’eau qui fait déborder le vase” is a French idiomatic expression, which literally means “the drop of water that has made the vase overflown”. I guess this could be translated in English by the straw that broke the camel’s back, although the accuracy of the French saying pertains much better to my situation. But anyway, this was the first thing that came to my mind this morning after someone’s small and sweet gesture made me reevaluate the way I had lately been handling certain situations.
I firmly believe that every single person touching our life from close or from afar has a specific purpose. This purpose might be obvious or it might not be; however, it is ALWAYS life altering as it guides and influences you through different paths, doors and ultimately helps you experience a meaning-full life.
Furthermore, let’s put it out there: the Universe does not make any mistakes; she has been doing this ish* for a while now and it does not matter what you think you really want; I know you really really want it, and it seems like this is IT – but you are confused; what you want is irrelevant because as the caring and loving entity she is, she will only give you what you NEED.
And in a near or distant future, you’ll see that obviously, at the time, you were barking up the wrong tree. So, It is up to us to do it her way or the hard way.
Sometimes you just need to let the water overflow and #TrustTheProcess.
