If you are mere mortal, eventually, 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!
Honestly, 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:
Always believe something wonderful could happen.
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.
