Difficult situation

It’s inconvenient, frustrating, challenging, tedious, even painful at times. And it’s exactly what you need.

It’s not fair, you didn’t ask for it, don’t deserve it. Yet your very best option is to take full responsibility and act to do something about it.

As aggravating as it may be, there’s a lesson in it and unique value to be gained from successfully dealing with it. There’s a pathway to new levels of strength, skill, patience, experience, compassion and understanding.

It is an opportunity to discover how much you care. It is a chance to clearly see what’s most important to you, and why.

Despite the protests you might hear yourself making, you’re ready for this. You have what it takes to apply effort, goodness, integrity and love to a difficult situation.

By making a positive difference you fulfill one of the most fundamental and essential roles of your existence. Give of the goodness you have and experience the incomparable satisfaction of bringing new goodness to life.
