Midnight Motivations and Musings # 57…

1460306142637[1]

We make plans about all that we want in life, but life makes its plans for us as well.

We have a good idea of the structure of how we want it to turn out, but something derails us along the way.

At times, these curve balls actually end up helping to straighten and put us on the right path.

It all depends on how we respond to the challenges and detours that we are offered.

Do we choose to see every strike and fall with a jaundiced eye?

Such an approach bodes chances that we could become embittered and probably lose sight of the little openings and apertures that these lessons offer.

We shouldΒ focus on other possible alternatives that may be available to us.

  1. this post is dead-on. I am having a day filled with little derailments. Your post reminded me to change my frame of reference and seek the lesson in each snafu. Thank you for your words of wisdom! They were sorely needed today!

  2. Love this. This is such a coincidence. We have a similar life lesson going on in our house since last week. A family member is upset that her life plans are going nowhere near what was imagined. I keep reminding her that life can knock you on your behind and you will land so hard your drawers will end up around your feet. But, you catch you breath, get up, dust your behind off, pull up you big girl panties and have at it again by shifting your focus and being thankful for what you’ve got!!
