I've found myself in the midst of a few challenges this week and I've also learned a great deal from these challenges. Such as throw out the word 'can't' and replace it with I'll give it my best shot.
I learned long ago to quit limiting myself to the possibilities, but that doesn't change the fact that every day there is something to learn from this things we call life. I just wish sometimes I wasn't so blessed with lessons to be learned LOL.
I recently learned not to limit my mind when it comes to others. To let judgmental attitudes go to expand my mind to the possibilities of what I could see and learn from others walking this earth. What I've found is a broader spectrum of the world I live in.
It doesn't matter where you live in this big old world, we're still just a tiny corner in a much bigger picture. Every person has their own spice to bring to your pot. Even the ones who challenge every aspect of your life is bringing a lesson to the table for you. If they challenge your nerves, as I've had this week, there is an experience in there, something for you to learn to rise above. Something to apply to your life. You just have to get past your anger to see it.
One thing I've also learned is those who challenge us daily, wear on our nerves, or just get our gander up, well, those are the people we put time limits on for being in our daily life. If we have to be in their presence, then make the most of it. If we don't have to, then by all means keep them at a distance.
We have been placed in their life as well for a purpose. That purpose may or may not be known to us. It doesn't have to be clear to us, but the challenge is to hold onto your true self and not allow them to change you, make you bitter, or spiteful.
This is my biggest challenge yet. Maintaining me in a world that would be so easy to remain bitter and angry all the time. To hold out for karma when one would rather just take care of the problem themselves.
This is where I realize I've grown much deeper in my faith. I understand the control we have as human beings and how our minds can unlock the doors to many things we were not aware of. Yet, with this power comes knowledge, comes compassion, and yes, even forgiveness.
In my faith we realize we control our elements. We draw from the power each has to offer. To allow these powers to guide us, assist us, and help us through our toughest times. We grow within our world and that around us, bring new strength into our lives, a strength we did not realize was there.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
