It is not what happens to you that counts as much as how you perceive it. You can either be a victim of your history or a master of your destiny just by changing your perspective. One of the greatest discoveries in human nature is that you change your life by changing your perspectives and attitudes of mind.
— Dr J Demartini
They say everything in life happens for a reason and there is a lesson to be learned from each experience. I’ve had a few hard experiences that caused me to wonder what kind of lesson I could learn from them, but looking back, those experiences contributed to who I am today.
Do you have any similar experience that seemed like hell in the moment, but actually helped you some way or another in your life?
Until next time.

The universe is a strange place. When you live a good life without violating the laws of the universe, you or your children will reap the rewards.
My mother is a kind-hearted soul. She treats everyone with respect. Sometimes I’ve witnessed some of those same people whom she has shown kindness treat her bitterly. I get mad sometimes, but I find solace in the fact that her kindness will not go unnoticed. The universe is aware of this and I am receiving her blessings/rewards now.
If you intend to live your life hurting others, remember that your deeds might not affect you, but your children or your grandchildren. Sometimes you might notice that things never go in your favor despite your best efforts. That’s because no bad deed goes unnoticed. The universe is righting a wrong. Some might call it karma. It’s all about balance.
