The Universe is not blessing you or punishing you; the Universe is responding to the vibrational attitude that you are emitting.
When I am in pain, it is easy for me to get angry with others and angry with God. I thought it was the world that was doing bad things to me and making my life miserable. “Why me?” used to be my mantra.
With my program in recovery, a miracle happened. No circumstance changed in my life. I still have the same people in my life. I still have the same job. But my life is different. This is because I have changed. My attitude has changed. The way I approach the same circumstance has changed. My “vibrational attitude” is different. Today, I don't ask “why me?” Instead I ask for help from others and my Higher Power and feel gratitude for my life.
