Came across this inspirational column today. And wanted to share some excerpts:
All of us experience surprises every day which cause changes in our lives.
These surprises can be joyful or they can be sad. Either way they have to be embraced so we can go forward. One of the biggest struggles in every person’s life is the challenge of embracing surprises that come our way. It can be a new birth or it can be a new loss. It can be a marriage of a loved one or a divorce of a loved one. It can be a new adventure of good health or a new adventure of bad health. Either way it is a surprise and an adventure that needs to accepted, understood and embraced. Every daily surprise teaches us something about life. It teaches us how to go deeper within ourselves. It also challenges us to discover what are our real values in life. Every surprise in life gives us an opportunity to deepen our relationship with God and discover how to profoundly open up to this relationship.
Stay on the new road. Experience the journey. It will bring you to love and gratitude which is what this life is all about and what the next life is all about.
I love my surprises today. They teach me how to surrender.
