Sometimes, you just need to take a life lesson for what it's worth. No analyzing, no self-loathing, no regrets or wishing things were different. Just accepting and trusting that no matter how the lesson is dished out or served, it is tailor-made just for you. And since it's for you, certain things are crafted with you in mind and certain people are supposed to play a part. Even when you are uncertain of the role they're meant to play, recognize first and foremost that they have value and they are important to your journey...then coast with them in harmony.
Sometimes, you need to be okay with the hand you're dealt. It's yours so own everything about it. Play your hand with confidence and know that no matter what others have, yours is undoubtedly a winning hand. You have what it takes and are already equipped with everything you need to prosper, overcome and win! Spending your precious time wishing for mo' better could be an exercise in futility and produce nothing more than an endless loop of ungrateful unrest. To those who are never satisfied with what they have, mo' better never, ever, ever comes and usually leads to mo' drama, mo' strife and mo' bitterness.
Sometimes, when people want to love you, let them. When they want to show you that they care, embrace them. When they want to help, step aside and allow them to bless you. By allowing others to sow positively into your life (by any measure) you ignite the law of reciprocity. The next time you find yourself wanting to love, care for and help someone, you'll appreciate the acceptance of your gifts.
Sometimes, regardless of how you feel, you need to sit back and just be thankful for the good things in your life. Things may not be perfect, but God never said they would be - there's no need to be caught off guard by adversity. What He did say is that He will be with you always. He says He has a specific plan for you and that plan is to prosper you and to give you hope and a good future. What is life without hope? What is 'today' without a little excitement for the joy that 'tomorrow' brings? Stop trying to figure things out - it's not a part of your job description. Simply receive God's promises, accept His timing and live your life like the blessing it was created to be.
Even when weeping endures, the sun is still shining somewhere and it's only a matter of time before its rays warm your life...again. Today's valleys are no match for yesterday and tomorrow's mountaintop so dance in that valley and faint not! Close your eyes and imagine yourself as your best self! Separate yourself from chaos and strife. See yourself free - you already are!!!
