“If you don't like something, change it.
If you can't change it, change your attitude.”
IT'S STORY TIME!
Life is interesting, isn't it?
One day, I'm plodding along my merry way and then things change in an instant!
Actually, for me, it was a series of 'instants.' (or unfortunate events)
First, my car was sideswiped while parked! - I was out listening to music; enjoying myself with friends and then I head to my car (parked down the street)- and found the bumper
sitting on the hood with a note:
"this is the plate # of the guy who did this" 👀
Second: Next morning, I get a call that a dear friend had a stroke and they were transporting her to another hospital. (I raced to the nearby hospital just before they loaded her into the ambulette) 🙏
Third; Next day, I get in the shower- when after a few seconds in, water goes ICE COLD! (the 20 year old water heater had it's last laugh) 🚿
All of this is on top of handling the myriad of paperwork associated with handling the estate of a family member- we are in the final stages of completion (after a year an a half!)-
Not going to lie, that's been draining on its own.
Many years ago, I would have crumbled under even just one of these things, I would have felt like a victim - "why does stuff always happen to me??"
YET, when I took a breath (okay, quite a few breaths); I realized that I really had come so far!
One of the biggest things I teach is that
life is always going to present challenges to us...
✔some deep shit is going to happen,
✔people are going to leave us,
✔cars are going to get dented,
✔we are going to have health challenges,
✔things will fall apart.
✔things ultimately work out
It's how we handle these challenges that count.
Fortunately, I have the training and perspective to understand that life is just being life- these thing are relatively minor (my friend will be okay) -
But the most important thing I realized is:
THANK GOODNESS I HAVE THE SPIRITUAL TOOLS
to ride through this storm!
From this perspective, I'm filled with GRATITUDE
I fully trust in the Universe and I know that everything will be well.
How about you?
STAY TUNED: I've got some amazing things happening and will be sharing more in the coming weeks!
In the meantime;
Have a great week filled with LOVE, PEACE, JOY!
