We often find that when we evaluate a situation, a condition or a person, we are judging whether that thing is good or bad. We size it up, weight the options, and immediate decide one way or another about it’s essence.
That sucks! What an awful thing to have happen to you! Wow, I’d hate to be in your shoes!
We are so quick to judge that we miss out on the real opportunities that are around the corner, and forget that we cannot see the full picture from our limited perspective.
Next time something difficult comes your way, try this: welcome it with open arms, lovingly embrace it and hold space for it. You just might find that it’s not so awful after all, and in fact, it may be a great opportunity for you to grow and thrive, and learn something you might never have learned otherwise.
