A practice that I’ve been working on lately is to wrap all circumstances with blessings, appreciation and love – even if they initially appear “bad” or “undesirable”. It’s part of me being Mindful and taking the time every evening to analyze my day. Even when a particular situation may not have gone the way I initially wanted it to, that situation or relationship was presented to me for a reason…. for me to learn something from it. Every situation, every relationship, every call for a decision presents itself in my life to push me further along my soul’s journey.
When you develop the practice of calling all situations Blessed even if some of them may not feel that way in the physical, you take away any negative energy it creates within you.
