We will experience many obstacles in life. Usually, our first reaction is to resist what is happening. We also want to know why it is happening. What we really need to do is focus on getting though the situation and to think positive about what we can learn from it. It’s a growing experience. We may come to find out later or we may never know. Our faith is being put to the test.

Parents beware: your children watch every move you make inside the home and outside the home. Right now, they are absorbing everything there is to know about life. Please be good role models for them, because they are depending on you to teach them all that you know. This is good, because you can actually mold them into becoming great adults. Your children are going to grow up being like you. So, are you happy and content? Do you like yourself? Are you a calm and patient person or are you uptight and anxious? Do you have manners, and are you polite and respectful toward others? How do you react to negative situations? Do you eat healthy food, and are you active? Maybe you need to change in some areas so that you can be the best role models you can be for your children. This is the perfect time to do so while they are still young and wanting to learn. Do it for you and them, because they need your guidance. Be very grateful for your children. They are blessings from God!
The more you engage in the blame game, the more you lose in the game of life. Accusing someone else for a negative situation is a means of defending yourself and avoiding your own flaws and weaknesses. I know because I have done this in the past. I appreciate that those challenging experiences were actually meant for me so that I could learn and grow from them. We get caught up in wanting to be right and are quick to point fingers at others. We need to take responsibility for ourselves, but not by self-blame either. The next time a bad situation arises, ask yourself what can you take away from it, and of course, always be mindful of what you can do to better yourself.
Complaining will get you nowhere, but action will get you everywhere ~ dp. When you keep complaining about what is not working in your life, you will continue to attract more problems. Quit focusing on the problem, and figure out what you can do to change the situation. Start taking the necessary steps to resolve the issue, and everything will flow accordingly. Take action and believe that things will work out. You will see how quickly your life will turn around!
With the many decisions and challenges we face every day, how do we achieve inner peace? Inner peace starts with self-acceptance. When you feel good about yourself and be yourself, you will have peace within. Have faith and confidence that things will work out and stay calm during a storm. The less you react to negative situations, the more peaceful your life will be. Take time for yourself. Simplify your life. Meditation is the best practice for peace, relaxation, and connection to the source of all life.
