I have been BLESSED with many areas in need of improvement in my life, one such area is being able to see the bigger picture. I am not sure why it is so hard for me to do this but it is…I suppose its just my make up, I have a yellow personality and want life to always be fun and exciting, I live for the here and now and NOT for the bigger picture. But I know being able to see that bigger picture is vital to my growth.
Without going into detail on a disappointing event that occurred this week (seriously it is only a big deal to me, I am not sure many others would have felt and reacted the same way I did, hence I am not telling you) I was so nicely reminded that there just might be a reason behind it all. That probably the universe is not conspiring against me, which was my first reaction to the disappointment and that no I had not been cursed with the luck of Job. So I had my little break down, did some retail therapy and now I am remembering that this singular disappointment will not become the ultimate downfall of my existence.
“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”- Alexander Graham Bell
