Many times in life, we are faced with obstacles specially designed to define us…. Obstacles in the form of moments that seem to make us question our life’s journey with… Where am I going? What’s next? Am I headed in the right direction?
In these moments, we have to decide what’s best for us. Do you pray before making decisions? No matter how dire these situations may seem, just one step in the right direction can make a huge impact.
Lessons… That’s what obstacles are to me. There’s never been an obstacle in my life that I hadn’t learned from. And when I miss the lesson, unfortunately, it returns in another form. Thus, the dejavu moments.
Nevertheless, time continues to tally minutes and hours. Life goes on. And hopefully, you’ll get it. Hopefully, you’ll truly understand the obstacles you face because it is an internal thing ….an internal, spiritual process.
Come what may, we must not lose heart. We must continue fight to get better and do better… always keeping an end result in mind.
There’s potential in all of us. How we deal with obstacles placed in our daily lives can either make or break the chances of us reaching our full potential.
Today, I encourage you to remain open-minded to where you’re going… your next… And should you find yourself headed in the wrong direction…decide today’s the day to change directions.
Unleash your potential…
Laced with Love,
