"Let the fairies of the universe figure out the details. Let them surprise and delight you." Abraham
Blessings come in all shapes and forms. Sure, we know about wealth, health, and love as blessings. But what about the ones we don't think about. What about the sudden large inconvenience. What about the pile of work someone has dropped on your doorstep just when you've finally gotten things "under control"?
You've made it past your wild and wooly days, you've conquered how to manage your money, you are at a point in your life where the basics come easy and you feel comfortable. Then BAM! You find out you have a health concern that needs frequent doctor visits and new lifestyle changes. Maybe someone you love dearly, unexpectedly is called home. Maybe it will fall to you to help care for someone in need, regardless of the circumstance it happens, the inconvenience, the detour, the "this wasn't in the plan" moment. There is a blessing in these as well. Often it is difficult to see, maybe impossible when you are right in the middle of it, but if you seek to see, it is always lit up.
When this happens you have two choices. 1. You can wallow and wonder "why me?" and this can last forever if you let it. The energy you will expend will exhaust you, and the state of mind will destroy you. or 2. You can pull on your boots and start wading through the muck searching for the blessing. I'd rather be on a never ending hunt for beauty than to accept living in the shit with no hope of ever seeing the light. Your life, your choice.
Everybody has bumps, EVERYBODY. Choose to cruise through them or lay down in the trash and give up, it's your choice.
Love and Light
