It's a set-up
Life is often tough. In our angst, sadness, discouragement and anger, we find ourselves feeling helpless - even hopeless.
if you think about the difficult, and the wonderful, think about which can make you stronger, moving you toward your destiny?
As Winston Churchill pointed out, you can see adversity in every opportunity, or you can see the opportunity in every adversity.
Even in failure or mistakes, look for the opportunity, especially when you don’t understand. When you accept in that moment that this adversity, just like every blunder, missed deal and broken heart will eventually play to your favor, you may just see the door that has been opened for you.
Or, it may take awhile, giving you an opportunity to practice endurance and growth.
It’s a set-up. Closed doors are often the Universe’s way of steering you in a much better direction. Look for the direction. This is your moment of power. Say, “I can do this!”
To your next open door,
Share love with everyone you meet, a smile, a hug, a word. Gladden their hearts.
Listen. Try to understand. Say thank you often, and say, “It’s my pleasure,” more.
Be gentle. Answer softly and with your heart. Be a treasure to your loved ones. Laugh a little more. Say lots of gratitude things to everyone as you go through your days.
Notice God’s beautiful Earth. Breathe in its wonder.
Speak your love.
Speak it again.
Speak it yet
May I start?
I love you. I truly love you,
Chris, and from Claude too.
Your power is in this moment. What you do in this moment defines your tomorrow, your future.
In this moment, sacrifice what you “are” (have been), for what you can become!
