“Every experience, no matter how bad it seems, holds within it a blessing of some kind. The goal is to find it.” Buddha
I know I have written about this a few times, but life is still teaching me that it doesn’t matter how well you think you know people, you do not. December was an interesting month and again my life is a big question mark. It would be so easy to let myself fall into the self-pity trap and get stuck focusing on all the things that are going wrong. I am working not to do that. I keep reminding myself that the universe gives us what we need even when we don’t realize it is what we need.
I am focusing on the positive side of things. Life is making room for new and better things. While things seem hard right now, in the end, they will be exactly what we needed. One of my favorite quotes (listed above) is a perfect reminder that there is always something better to come.
Basically, you can either choose to see the bad or see the good in the things that happen in your life. It is easier to focus on the bad because it takes less work to do that. I have spent a few years now working to change how I react to the things in my life. I was angry about what happened, I was sad, I was stressed, and I was hurt. I could have grasped all of that and just stayed in those places, but I didn’t want to be there. I decided to find the good things about this situation and work from there.
So, when things get tough remember how you react is the only thing you can control. Everything else is going to happen how it happens. Working to focus on the good takes time and effort, but it is worth it.
Life is generally what we make of it and I am going to make it the best life I can.
