Perhaps it is time for a reminder. You can choose how you react to situations and events once the initial surprise has passed. “Isn’t that interesting” is one of the most valuable phrases you can keep in your toolbox of responses. It is far better than, “This is the worst thing that could happen.” It is far more useful than, “I cannot stand this.” It is superior to, “Why did this happen to me?” Need we go on? “Isn’t that interesting” gives you a moment to see that there are various ways you can see each situation. In that moment of pause, go higher and see that this too shall pass … that it is an opportunity to grow and to be the presence of love, no matter what.

You are so very loved.
