[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Leaving the fixings to later

We have already said that wishful thinking is how the ego deals with what
it wants, to make it so. ACIM

I applied for a loan for a car which I was given a few exemptions on. I
have been waiting for the response since April about the car. Today the
bank called me and said they are unable to provide me with a loan for the
car, my credit report is screwed since I defaulted on my mortgage during my
divorce. I feel rejected and sad. I was 100% certain that I would have been
driving my car next week out of the parking lot. I called the car dealer to
explain the situation. He was very supportive.

So automatically I ask myself, what is the lesson? I haven't figured it out
yet but what I do know for sure is that my trust is being put in the
forefront. My faith in a positive outcome as well! Usually I would go
into "fix it" mode already, looking at how to fix it today I will feel the
feelings and leave the fixings to later

Peace
