TWISTS AND TURNS

On this day be thankful for the way life miraculously unfolds and let the mystery of what is to come energize you.
 
We cannot plan for every twist and every turn our life's journey takes us on. We cannot control it either. Frankly there is no such thing as a problem free life. Big and small we grapple with 'why me' as if we expect not a hitch, not a set back, not a difficulty should ever cross our path. 'Problem free please' we might shout out in prayer or to a friend. But this kind of thinking, very often, pulls us away and distracts us from the good learning in store for us. 

Wayne and Mary Sotile, authors of Letting Go of What's Holding You Back (a must read) say 'Stress is inevitable, struggling is optional' and isn't that amazing to know? Challenge is life, own it. Make the most out of every opportunity and do your best to handle it with confidence, dignity and grace. Our response to the trial is what determines how bright our lives shine on the world.  With all your heart, no matter where the path of life takes you, see the adventure it has to offer. Rather than resist what comes your way embrace it wholeheartedly. Give your life its finest hour every day just like nature does without question. Spirits will always be lifted if you do and please don't forget the light shinning down on you; a light that always brightens the way if we let it.

On this day be thankful for the way life miraculously unfolds and let the mystery of what is to come energize you.
