Can you believe it?! We are already nearing the end of the first month of 2015. Crazy!
But we still have time to get busy and get down to the real business of making this year — 2015 — a scandalous success in whatever way you’ve decided that means to you.
Unfortunately, along the way, life will throw a bucket full of marbles in your path to slip you up and land you flat on your arse — deflated, discouraged, and defeated! Truth is, I have already had three such instances this month alone where I threw my hands up in the air and fell to the floor in a sobbing heap of hopelessness. Why is life so freaking hard?!
So when times get tough and it seems that life is “like a mountain railroad,” we all need to be encouraged and remember this nugget from an Unknown Wise Person:
One of the reasons I started this blog was as way to keep these kind of thoughts at the forefront of my mind and heart everyday. Every. Day. I try to remember that something wonderful could happen. It could! And I look for it. It might be the tiniest of events, like an impromptu encounter of understanding with another soul or being unexpectedly in the presence of a beautiful, curious child.
In our busy, bigger is better world, these seem like inconsequential things, I know. But when you stop and think about it, isn’t it these little things that add wonder and beauty to life — (dramatic pause) if we let them?!
So when you feel battered by the vicissitudes of life, hold on to this thought: Tomorrow, or even later today, something wonderful could happen!
Call to action: How do you plan to re-design your life so that the belief in this possibility is permanently written in your heart and on the pre-frontal cortex of your brain no matter how hard life slaps you down? Please, share your strategy in the comments below.
