When you are in difficulties, look upon the overcoming of them as a great adventure. Resist the temptation to be tragic, to give way to self-pity or discouragement; and approach the problems as though you were an explorer seeking a path through Darkest Africa, or an Edison working to overcome difficulties in connection with a new invention. You know that there is a way out of any difficulty whatever, no matter what it may be, through the changing of your own consciousness by prayer. You know that by thus raising your consciousness any conceivable form of good that you can desire will be yours; and you know that nobody else can by any means hinder you from doing this when you really want to do it – relatives, customers, employers, the government, bad times, so called – nothing can hinder you from the rebuilding of your own consciousness – and this rebuilding is the Great Adventure. ~Emmet Fox
Give thanks today ~ even if your life is not what you want it to be. You may be facing financial hardships with no place to call your own, in the midst of serious health or relationships challenges, dealing with crazy children or relatives or overworked and underpaid. When you look at your life, it may be hard to be thankful.
For others, this may have been your best year ever. You turned your life around, enjoyed success, created more love in your life and exceeded your personal best. Regardless of where you find yourself…in all things give thanks. You still have another chance to turn things around, set things right; heal relationships, live full out, laugh and love more and stand in your GREATNESS! Your presence creates possibility, promise and hope for the future. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice.” ~T.S. Eliot,
2020 has finally expired, no doubt people around the world held their breath as the old year rolled out and the New Year rolled in. 2020 was a difficult year for everyone, some of us faced disappointments, loss, near misses and all of us, whether directly or indirectly lives was touched by COVID. With the old year behind us, we should all face the new year with clear and honest resolutions to make the each moment count.
