Life hands each of us challenges that we’d rather not face… and yet it is these very challenges which often cause the greatest spiritual growth. I wrote the piece below for the many people I care about who have been facing serious challenges this past year, in the hopes that it will make the next stage of their journey a little easier. If you know someone who has been going through a rough time recently, please feel free to share this piece with them… I call it “CROSSROADS“.
As the New Year approaches, I try to take time to reflect on the lessons I’ve learned in the year past so I can greet the year ahead with hope in my heart. This year I have learned that I am NOT in control of anything except my attitude… and that when I am grounded in gratitude it is easier for me to have a positive attitude. I knew this on some level before… but 2014 was the year that I learned to live it.
I’d love to know what lessons you learned this past year that you feel are important… so please take a few minutes to reflect, and then share from your heart. I will send a print of the piece above to one (or possibly more!) of the people who leave a comment.
Wishing you and your loved ones a peaceful, healthy, and ‘Zenspiring’ New Year.
