Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."
- Lao Tzu
Do not waste too much time trying to fight what our lives throw at us.
When we understand that there is indeed a plan and a mission for us all, we CAN - we MUST - accept the hard times, the challenges, the disappointments, and welcome all the blessings that we take for granted each day!!!!
We don't need to understand it. Stop resisting reality and all it's storms and tests!!
We just need to know AND TRUST that we will get through whatever we are going through as long as we don't quit!!!
Seek what it is you are here to be doing in this short time and it will become apparent very quickly!!!
Persevere...Trust .... and soldier on with a positive attitude - and this is key - FOCUS on what you WANT as opposed to what you are up against!
Solutions and next steps are where you want to channel all your efforts - not on repeating the problem or challenge over and over in your head!
Remember that none of us is alone in our daily battles - even if it seems that way at times!!
Stop feeling weak and overwhelmed - instead take the OFFENSIVE here and accept the challenge!
You are not unique in your fear or your battles - so what are you going to do about it???
Quiver in fear?
Or will you lift your head high, hold your shoulders up, and tackle your trials with confidence and Faith???
The choice of "how we react" to any situation is ALWAYS our very own - and it is ALL we truly control!!
This too shall pass...what matters is HOW we choose to ride out the storm!
