All things that happen in our lives – good or bad – carry an opportunity for us to learn from the experience.
I know how it feels like when everything feels like a struggle, or there seems to be no way out of a problem.
It’s easy to fall into the ditch of self pity, and feel like a victim of Life.
Calling your friends for sympathy, having them agreeing with your view on the situation.
After all, you did the best you could do!
It’s not your fault that the economy is going down, and the politicians make everything even worse than it was.
Just keep an open mind for a bit…
When we decide to open up our thoughts for the possibility that there is a bigger picture at play, something shifts in us.
You get a glimpse of Hope.
“What can I learn from this situation?”
If it’s an illness or pain in your body, ask that part of your body if it has a message for you.
Maybe you need to change something in your diet, exercise more, or just have more fun in your life!
If your parents have a hard time to show you compassion and support, maybe they are missing it themselves.
Talk with them.
You might discover that when they were young, their parents told them that they must be realistic and get a real job, not follow a fantasy.
Now, you give both yourself and them an opportunity to heal.
And maybe getting a better relationship too.
If your company closes down because of the economy, you might realize that you never even liked your job that much, in the first place.
Now you are free to apply for an another one, without feeling guilty for choosing something new.
Or go back to school to learn something new!
Even start your own business, and follow a long-lost dream.
Or, as in a story I read today.
A young woman working as paramedics in an ambulance.
In her work, she saw children being afraid of following the ambulance.
It can be a traumatic experience for every adult, to rush off to the hospital, when you are sick or have been in an accident.
Fear of the unknown makes everything worse.
So she came up with the idea of entertaining the children, to make their ride a little less scary.
She started by making balloon animals using plastic gloves.
After new year, just a few weeks ago, she created a Facebook page, and asked people to knit small teddy bears, that they could give to the children in the ambulance.
Now, the response is so good, that they might have enough tiny teddy bears for all of the ambulances in the country.
A small gift that gives support, hope and comfort in a traumatic time.
Her idea and initiative, changes the lives of many children in her community.
Thanks to this wonderful woman, and all those loving Souls donating knitted teddy bears.
Every adversity is an opportunity for you to grow as a Human and Spirit.
Every problem is a potential Treasure.
It doesn’t matter if it’s in your Personal Life, or in your Community.
Use it to improve your Life, and the World.
Be ready to understand yourself and others more.
Be ready to follow your new insight.
