Hello friends and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. Over the last several days I have been out of sorts for some reason. I believe some of my discomfort was due to the way that I interpreted specific events that occurred during the later part of last week. In response, I experienced some anxiety and feelings of inadequacy. As I continued to process why I felt anxious and inadequate I gained the needed clarity. Although I felt disorientated for a time I regained my focus.
I believe the events from last week helped to set in motion important and valuable decisions that I needed to make this week. Although I was indecisive and apprehensive in making specific changes, my discomfort motivated my decision to enlarge my focus. Even though I initially could not see the benefit produced by my discomfort, I am now able to understand that my discomfort motivated me to look for solutions. Even though I was angry with my friend last week I am now grateful for his encouragement and admonition.
My experience has revealed that as I take time to pray meditate and be open to my destiny, my process becomes obvious. Answers to my questions become apparent and I will find solutions. By not blaming, criticizing or projecting my fear or anger in anyone’s direction I am empowered through my process. With time, I am able to find my center and regain my serenity. Through regaining my center or serenity, I am able to find my way to make better decisions to follow my destiny.
My encouragement to you my friend — as I need to encourage myself — give yourself the time you need to learn the lessons that will point you in the direction of your destiny. You may have people, events or experiences in your life that triggers fear and anxiety. You may find yourself becoming agitated with those circumstances. Try not to over react, and the clarity you are seeking will come with time. You will find your way and your answers will come to you. And please remember that you do not have to be alone. Reach out to people who love you, to a loving God and to yourself.
