I'm grateful for persistence. While I have heard and experienced "what we resist persists" I think it is also equally important to remember that if we want something we do have to put effort towards achieving it. Often I hear spiritual people saying that is wasn't "in the cards" as a result of running into a hiccup. Sometimes this is in fact the case but other times I believe it is the universe testing you to see what you really want. If we choose to give up every time a small snag occurs in our plans we would have a hard time achieving anything. I'm grateful to have experienced the triumphs of persistence yesterday and I'm grateful for that reminder that just because it isn't always smooth and easy doesn't mean I have taken a wrong turn. I'm also grateful for calm, internal communication; stepping back from the issue and reminding myself that I can handle any situation. Often we are stronger than we give ourselves credit for. I'm grateful to remember my strength and the strength I gain from the love and support of others. I'm grateful for the strength I find in knowing that I live in a universe created in love. I'm grateful for these small challenges that teach me valuable lessons about commitment and persistence. What challenges do you face on your path? Which ones are there to change your direction and which ones are there for you to overcome? No matter what life throws at you today, I hope you can find the peace and beauty within it!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
