I came across this inspiration today and I wanted to share it with all of you. Every day we are dealing with challenges that we may not always understand. This inspiration spoke very loudly to me.
I have been doing a lot in the past year with my life. I became unmarried, I live on my own, creating my business, paying bills, and recently started dating, along with publishing my first book. A lot has gone on in the past year. I am also taking myself to Italy in July. A lot...Right?
When we start living our lives, things start to fall into place pretty quickly; obstacles can come to us just as fast. As I am doing all these different things, I have also had to deal with road blocks. I have had to deal with setbacks, shortages...you know the everyday life stuff. What I have started to realize is how strong I really am.
When you start to live your journey, you will also have a lot coming at you that may decide whether you move forward or quit. I have found that I am a lot stronger than I thought I was. Next month I will be in my place for 1 year...I can't believe how fast the time went, and yet I have been able to support myself and keep myself going. I find myself tired but waking up happy and knowing I can do anything I set my mind too. I have realized how amazing I truly am, and the only obstacle that is in front of me, is what I have put there.
Every day we are going through something, how we perceive it and react to it will determine how we respond. When you can step back and look at the bigger picture, and see there is more going on than what is in front of you; you can then decide how you will respond. Most of us live miserable lives because we refuse to look at the bigger picture. We would rather be unhappy and make the people around us miserable, because we are afraid to be any different.
Have you ever just had that one person, who is around you, no matter how wonderful thing are, they are always miserable and unhappy. The person seems to think nothing ever good happens to them, that if it’s going to be bad, it will happen to them? We all have someone around us who are like that. It gets to be draining and if you are not careful, you will start to take on their negativity and think the same way.
This inspiration is so important to really absorb. We are always being tested, but it's not the way we think it is. When you start to see different perspectives in your life, you will start to see that everything is actually happening for your highest good. You start to see how you have made better choices for yourself because of the experiences you have had. For me, seeing how strong I am, and how I am not letting the little stuff keep me down, and when the big stuff comes about, it's like a piece of cake. I can deal with the stress as if it is really no big deal.
When you come across obstacles, take a deep breath and really look at the situation. How are you responding? How are you feeling? Are you seeing you are better than the situation? Most importantly, are you seeing you can handle the situation without a lot of drama?
Today, look at everything that transpires in our day, and see it happening for you instead of against you.
Have a great day my friends.
