It isn’t very often that we find ourselves in situations that bring us the opportunity to better ourselves, or so we think! What I have found in my 37 years on this earth is that opportunity presents itself EVERYWHERE! What we often do is stay so consumed in our fleshly desires that we miss out on any chance of seeing what we could take the time to do when an opportunity comes knocking.
It’s often masked by layer after layer of raw emotion and we see it as pain, suffering or even just pure heartbreak. But what I urge you to consider – and this may be hard to hear for some people – is to breathe in the moment and accept it with open arms.
Yes, I said it…welcome that heartbreak. Drink it in. Understand that its happening. There’s absolutely NOTHING you can do about it right now. Think of yourself standing in a softly flowing stream with a muddy bottom. You move around and it stirs up the sediment. Things become murky and cloudy and you find yourself lost in the moment and a bit scared about where you are in the stream. What lays beneath the water by your feet?
The solution is simple. Do Nothing. Breathe. Take it all in. Stay still and learn your environment. Soon enough, the current of the stream will carry away the sediment and the rest will settle by your feet and you will be able to see your way once again.
Remember this little analogy and you might be able to accept the pain that’s laid out before you with open arms and learn from the situation. Maybe. If not, then head on over to my LIFE IMPROVEMENT page and see how you can better yourself one day at a time!
