it's all happening for me, not to me.

shifting our perspective
by choosing how we look at our situation.

it's all happening for me.
for me to grow, to trust, to repent, to stretch, to become,
to settle, to resolve, to forgive, to look forward.

there are many gifts
in our lives that often come disquised
as heartache, sickness, inconvenience,
poverty, stress, conflict.

i need to see the gift.
see the learning.
accept the circumstances or situations
and allow them to grow me up.

(insert big sigh here)
because it is way harder than i just made it sound
isn't it?
