The challenging experiences in our lives serve us. They allow us to know more and see more, and in those we are able to become more of who we truly are.
And it feels GOOD to wake up and to realize that I have ALL the power and that my power is STRONG and that I am CAPABLE. And that with PRACTICE and DETERMINATION I can change EVERYTHING for the better if I choose to.
Today was an opportunity. And the tears were there to remind that I'm human and life is about feeling and BEING human. There is unity and harmony in owning that. I am HERE to experience human being-ness.
Life is much easier for me when I am focused on what IS. When I'm truthful about what is before me, even if it's not the most desirable experience, it allows me to deal with it in a real way that helps me learn from it more quickly. When I have learned the lesson, it "goes away."
