~Amidst the surface of every difficult situation is the need for some internal shift to take place in order to create the external change you desire. But if your focus is solely on your struggle, the door for a change will seem impossible to open. ~
When faced with a difficult situation if you stand looking at it frozen in fear the situation will consume you and you will become the situation.
You have no control of what goes on around you or what you will have to endure… you only have control of yourself; and your reaction will determine how you go through a situation with either Grace or disgrace.
There is always a solution to a problem but if you spin in thought with no action nothing will ever change. There has to be an internal shift from mindless thought to heartfelt listening in order to hear the door unlocking for your entrance to a change.
~ If you forget where you came from you just might fall back into the same situation you worked so hard to get out of. ~
We learn the most through pain and suffering… It is not the way we would like to learn but for some reason it is the most effective way for building our inner strength and faith; which helps us grow and evolve into what we are trying to become.
It is through what we learn that is supposed to keep us awake and alert for the warning signs that will help prevent us from falling back into the same old behavior patterns that lead us into similar situations from our past.
when we get caught up within our new-found changes we start to look ahead with excitement for what is to come; and that is when we quickly start to forget where we came from. Then before we even know it we are back into a similar situation that we never thought we would be in again.
The present moment is the only way to stay alert to ensure your present state of change. But… you also need to reflect when old feeling arise to validate that you truly did change.
