Lots of times people approach me and say “I don’t know how you do it” and my answer is always “I don’t know how I don’t”. Having trials and tribulations is a part of life.
Recently my friend Lisa suggested a new author to me, Echo Bodine. I am really enjoying her words of wisdom and thought I would share a piece of her book, Echoes of the Soul: Moving Beyond the Light, that really resonated with me last night.
Here’s an important thing to realize: We are not meant to float through life as victims of our circumstances. We have a great deal to do with our lives and how they turn out, how we turn out. We can make the most of life, and even enjoy it, or we can fight it and focus on how awful it is. There are choices to be made every day as to how we are going to perceive and live our lives. We are not here by accident, and there are no coincidences.
So, how do I choose to perceive my life? Well, I know there is a reason my family has the trials we have and I just continue to trust and have faith….
What about you?
