Give thanks for the interruption, the delay, the inconvenience. Perhaps that annoyance is a disguised blessing. Turn the frown upside down and trust the setback is for your highest good. Because it is. "Thank you that I'm stuck in this traffic; it may just have me be in the right place at the right time." Attitude is everything. Choose yours wisely. Life is too short to live frustrated. Live life and all of its 'colorful' experiences with gratitude. Always.
Everyday. All day. In every way. It's easy to stumble and even easier to stay down. Having faith requires belief, action, and incredible strength. What appears before us may look bleak and discouraging. Couple this 'real world' with a waiting game that seems never-ending, and another "F" word may call our attention and expression--repeatedly. "F" the doubt, the uncertainty, the anxiety, the fear! And just faith it (until you make it.) We may not know what lies ahead, but we can choose to believe the best awaits us. Ready for a faith walk? Always.
No thing and no one can take from you what is destined for you. Easily said. But easily believed? (I'm thinking back to when I didn't get a job that had my name written all over it and was to propel my career. I am now incredibly thankful for that 'loss'). Surrender a scarcity mentality. And not only in the area of money, but as it relates to all areas of life. With our choosing to believe that we have enough and we are enough despite not getting a job, a promotion, the person, the thing, the place that we projected as 'successful,' we build our trust muscles. Exercise is so much more than just physical, it's mental health too. ...
And so we missed a turn, made a mistake, and 'failed' horribly. Friends, we're still winning. The game is still going, and we're still in it. There are no wrong turns. Each path is an alternative to our best life and the best version of ourselves. Trust. Every moment is an opportunity to say, "YES! I got this," and to keep on keepin' on. "Forward march!" And we may not 'arrive' in a speed that breaks record, but that's alright. We'd much rather enjoy the scenic route and ARRIVE having seen and conquered. All of life's experiences, good and 'bad', will make for one heck of a victorious and celebratory arrival at the destination.
