This is the fifteenth installment of “Be Ready for the Wonderful: Words of Well-Being to Ease Your Way Through Change.”
Be Pepared for Gifts and Goodness
When winds of change blow, it’s all too easy to bemoan what is carried away in the process. Why not choose to notice the gifts and goodness flying in to fill the void?
You need not expect change to be all disordered chaos; clouds are indeed often lined with silver. Look! Good fortune peeks out at you from all directions, waiting to shower you with bits of kindness and small, unexpected favors.
Don’t expect that every approaching storm will cut a wide swath of destruction through your life. If you allow it, change is equally apt to toss rose petals onto the ground in front of you. The phone call heralding good news is just as likely to arrive as the message you so dread receiving.
Which way will you direct your gaze? Into what soil will you plant your seeds? What you expect to find around every bend is what will greet you.
Steeling yourself against undesired outcomes is a highly defensive and self-defeating position. Why not open your arms and be ready for the wonderful?
