Please read Part 1 for context — Thank you.
After pouring my cereal, frozen blueberries and soy milk into a bowl I used a spoon to submerge the frozen blueberries below the soy milk and cereal to thaw. I then went on to place some peanut butter onto the toast that I had taken out of the toaster. In the process of reaching for the jar of peanut butter I inadvertently brushed up against the spoon that I had left in the bowl of cereal after submerging the blueberries under the soy milk.
You guessed it. Over went the bowl and out came the honey nut cheerios, blueberries and soy milk.
Initially I was stunned by what had happened — as I watched the soy milk, honey nut cheerios and blueberries run down the counter top and under the microwave that was placed at the end of the counter top. After I regained my senses, I knew what had to be done. I got a warm dish cloth and proceeded to clean up the soy milk, honey nut cheerios and blueberries. In the process of angling the oversize microwave to clean the counter top beneath its immensity I saw a possibility.
Instead of continuing to be despondent because of the spilled soy milk, blueberries and honeynut cheerios I turned my focus to how I could reangle the microwave. In the process, I discovered a new functionality — that I had not previously considered.
My process confirmed my experience. When I choose not to despise the day of small beginning — or for that matter the small things that happen with in my day — I am empowered by what might other wise have appeared to be insignificant or inconvenient. In essence, when I choose to acknowledge and then take advantage of the possibilities that exist with in my circumstances I am given the opportunity to become a proactive participant in my own destiny.
Instead of being displaced by spilled milk I can choose to become a proactive participant in my own destiny. Craig J. Phillips
If you find your self crying over spilled milk — metaphorically speaking — being encouraged. Consider the possibilities because your destiny is awaiting your participation.
