And now the other side of the coin... (see yesterday's post.)
First of all:
"My life is changing everyday, in every possible way." - The Cranberries, Dreams
I must say, that just as there are showers of apparently bad challenges, there is a storm of apparently good ones!
"Don't judge a book by its cover." -Unknown
What may seem like obvious blessings to you, are experiences that are really hard for me. You would ask me why I'm whining, and I would tell you I am not. I will not whine, I will not complain. I acknowledge their greatness, and although I am super excited, I am also aware of how difficult these new experiences are, and how careful I must be in dealing with them so they serve as the positive promise they contain, and not as something that will hurt me. I am aware that this is entirely up to me.
Because nothing is totally good, and nothing is totally bad:
"Only a Sith deals in absolutes."
-Obi-Wan Kenobi, Episode III
I choose which side of The Force I want to be on in every single moment. What will I express? What will I add to in the universe? What will be my focus?
So I do appreciate the chances I have to face and surpass things I thought I couldn't do, and I will show myself that I can. Correction, I am showing myself that I can. Difficult and scary as these experiences may be, I am to focus on everything awesome I do have to give. We all have many qualities that produce beauty. We can all become better right this second, just by deciding it.
I know the only reason I am provided with these situations is because I have the tools within me to manage them well. So, yes, I will dig in and bring them out and handle them each at their time, and every time they come I will think "You're quite welcome."
I'll deal with it:
"Come what may." -Moulin Rouge
