"You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated."
-- Maya Angelou
Absolutely! Defeat is a temporary setback, but defeated is a mindset.
Broke is a temporary condition, as well as insolvency, a word that makes me think of more than broke because it often delves into negative territory. Poor is a mental state.
Feeling the space that is now empty where a loved one used to be is an inevitable change given time, but grief is a state of being.
There are many ways in which we can feel thwarted, or taken off the path we travel temporarily. As long as we maintain a hopeful stance, these things can actually create more strength, resolve, love, compassion, and even joy if we will allow ourselves to consider the benefits these temporary changes contain.
There Are Always Benefits As We Become Willing To See Them.
Spread Some Joy Today--by feeling your way toward your joy. It is always along the hopeful avenue.
