I've mentioned in earlier posts that it has been a difficult year for us. I want to retract that statement now. It's been a year of growth and learning. And there have been growing pains, more so when I've fought the process instead of embraced it. I'm learning that every single experience in my life is formed to mold me into the me I am intended to become. And given the fact that I don't believe my Creator makes mistakes, who am I to NOT trust the process? So with each new experience, and especially the ones that would normally send me into the corner wishing I had a straight jacket and a padded room, I accept there is a lesson to be learned that will only make me better. I approach everything as an adventure instead of an obstacle. An opportunity instead of a tribulation. Always easy? Hell no! But absolutely worth practicing. Attitude really can change everything.
I love this print from workisnotajob.com. They have some amazingly good stuff in their shop if you'd like to see more. You can also check out their blog here or their Facebook page here.
