you better be ready

If you ask the universe to teach you about one word
Over the course of the entire year
And for that word to be your focus for that time
You better be ready

Because when you ask the universe to do something
It goes ahead and does it
And it may not be in the way you were expecting
In fact, it most likely will not be in the way you wanted

The universe will open your eyes
Dig deep into your soul
And tug at your heart strings
It will challenge you
Force you to look in the mirror
And really, truly see yourself

The universe will not give you any breaks
Or take you down any short cuts
It will come at you quickly
Throwing you some curve balls along the way
Pushing you to the edge
Then pulling you back up

And when you want to throw your hands up in the air
Trying to surrender
The universe won't let you
"This is what you asked for"
The universe will say
And she will stand beside you
Because the universe never gives up on you

Through all of it
The universe is right there by your side
Holding your hand
And guiding you through the difficult times
Even though you may not be able to see that

And when you want to kick the universe to the curb
She will remind you again
"This was your request"
And she will push and push
Until it finally clicks in your head

And we all know
How long somethings can take to click in your head
So you better be prepared
Because the universe is in full swing
To move you forward
