When Will It?
There are events in our lives that in the moment of their “happening” we feel as if there will be no end to it.
Nothing could be further than the truth. It might not end as quickly as you might like or want but end it will. In the meanwhile, as the storm is raging and until the eye passes you over, there is something to be learned, something that will transform you should you allow it.
This week, as we continue to look at life challenges, we began with the following affirmation, an adaptation of a prayer by Julian of Norwich:
“Life provides everything that I need. It has my clothing, wrapping me in love. Life embraces me, shelters me, surrounds me with Its Tender love. Life will never desert me!”

Some are never satisfied with “what is.” Without judgement, let us affirm the following and allow Life to bring us what is needed for today and every day.
This one is from another great teacher – Joel Goldsmith, who suggests that to every insistent demand let our answer be:
As we end another week, we hope that you enjoyed our posts this week. This journey is full of challenges and each of us has different ways of dealing with them. What we offered throughout this week were ways you could consider should you be facing any of the issues we discussed. Thanks to Alexis Ali who submitted Part Two of her short story series about three people living within similar circumstances, facing the basic problem of “not having a perfect life,” and a teacher who guides them. Check out Part One and the follow-up to this series.
