Why is it in retrospect, we seem to see things more clearly than we do in the present moment? We know that our resilience is boosted when we are grounded in the moment and yet often in that moment that is so easy to forget.
I was reminded of this as I read 19 Great Truths My Grandmother Told Me on Her 90th Birthday. I especially like truth #19:
New opportunities are always out there waiting for you. – Nobody gets through life without losing someone they love, something they need, or something they thought was meant to be. But it is these very losses that make us stronger and eventually move us toward future opportunities. Embrace these opportunities. Enter new relationships and new situations, knowing that you are venturing into unfamiliar territory. Be ready to learn, be ready for a challenge, and be ready to experience something or meet someone that just might change your life forever.
Through this truth, I am reminded of the habit for this month, Focus on the Bright Spots. How can I always be searching for those new opportunities.
