What if you were always going to face this challenge right now ?
How differently would you approach it?
Your kid was always supposed to have 7 cavities in one visit.
Your car was always going to break down 4 times and each time they said they fixed it, they were wrong.
What if you were always going to get divorced/ sick/ cheated on/ stolen from/ mother die of cancer/ can’t have kids/_____fill in the blank_____ – and you just didn’t know it?
What if it was always part of the plan for your life and you just didn’t know that ?
What if all of the things you wish were different in your life were actually exactly the right things in your life?
How differently would you approach your imperfect life if you believed that?
For me it is a more peaceful, deliberate, accepting approach.
What about you?
