A wise man suggested to me, “Sometimes God puts you on your back so you can look up.”
At times, life shows up with challenges for each of us. The key is how you receive it, so being present with an open attitude goes a long way for a healthy and successful process.
The world is facing its toughest financial times since the Great Depression. Many people find themselves being forced to look up because they are on their backs. The challenges may be spiritual, mental, emotional, physical or financial. They may concern your health, your family and personal relationships. They may relate to your work or career.
No one on planet earth gets a free ride without trials and tribulations. We all come here to learn important lessons and to grow. Everyone makes their own choices and creates their reality. We each focus on what we want and reap the harvest of our thoughts, words and actions in our lives.
One thing for certain, it is the challenges and problems that reveal a person’s true character. It is easy to be kind and generous in good times, when everything is going your way. But it is even more important to follow proper principles when you are on your back, dealing with your challenges.
Can you still find a smile or a kind word or deed for others at your toughest times?
It is the love and kindness that truly touches our souls and makes a difference in our lives. It is the love and kindness that we take with us when we leave this life. It is the love and kindness that lights our way and empowers us to transcend the biggest challenges.
Know that a great and Higher Power, an Infinite Intelligence is here to help you. No matter what the challenge, there is always love and hope.
You may be flat on your back, but there is always a way to love, peace and freedom. You have to want it sincerely and believe. As a matter of fact, you are already moving towards it now. You can overcome any situation and achieve anything in life. It requires your focus and energy.
We have so much to be thankful for.
