Life's Tough Ones

Life has diligently continued to present numerous demanding experiences to me and those around me, one after the other, in these past few days.

It has been a time to test our characters and take a closer look at whom and how we really are. It’s not until you’ve been really tested that you make sure you’ve really learned some things.

It gave me an excuse to study one of my favorite books for the millionth time. (Dr. Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.)

And I’ve had the chance to exercise my gratefulness for the unexpected burdens. They surely serve as excellent training for the strengthening of our characters. (Plus, we're paying off some karma.)

A quote from the short and grand book:

“Attention energizes... Whatever you put your attention on will grow stronger in your life. Whatever you take your attention away from will wither, disintegrate, and disappear.”

Let's attend wisely.

You might like The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry. Lots of deep thoughts in a little book :) It's one of my favs.
