Reflecting upon this experience, I see it now as a shining example of ‘The Universe always has our back.’ We should always remember, “Just because we can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel doesn’t mean it isn’t there.”
Having competition should not put us off trying something new or striving to achieve an ambition of ours. Whichever way we turn, we are likely to face competition.
Rather than being a negative thing, perhaps we can use it to spur us on to our best efforts.
“You are a child of the Universe,
No less than the trees and the stars;
You have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
No doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should.”
