When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

In a recent Facebook post, I shared my dog’s little adventure – encountering a skunk for the third time. It got me thinking about how much my dog loves life and how he experiments with it and occasionally faces challenges. It struck me that our life journey mirrors this in many ways.

You encounter things you’d rather not deal with as you navigate life. The key is how you react to these situations, as your responses shape the outcomes in your lives. Life, much like a rollercoaster, often throws challenges your way. It’s easy to feel like we’re mere victims of circumstance, with life tossing curveballs at us without apparent reason.

But what if we dared to shift our perspective? What if we embraced the idea that life isn’t happening to us but through us and as us? Every situation and condition that unfolds is not just a random chance but an essential part of our human experience, pushing us toward growth.

I understand that adopting this mindset is no easy feat. During my challenging health journey with cancer, I had the opportunity to put this concept into practice daily. It became the most spiritual time of my life as I looked at everything, including cancer and its treatments, with gratitude.

This practice allowed me to align my thoughts with my higher self, especially in adversity. It required courage to navigate the storm with unwavering conviction and faith that all was well despite appearances. When we let situations define us negatively, it’s challenging to think differently.

The shift in thought comes from recognizing that challenges are part of the journey, each holding a lesson, even if it’s not apparent. Hindsight is 20/20, and eventually, we discover the gift in the situation.

I’m sure you can relate to this truth – having gone through difficult times in the past, realizing that the person you became during those challenges is something you wouldn’t trade. These circumstances, often labeled as challenges, are growth opportunities, shaping us into the person we are meant to be as we rise on the ladder of our becoming.

So, the next time life throws you a curveball, remember – you are not a victim of circumstances but an active participant in the grand dance of life. Cultivate unshakable trust, allow your perception to transform, and embrace the journey for what it is teaching you.

Learn that the faster you get on board, the quicker the lesson will be learned, and the challenge will be gone. Life is not happening to you – it’s happening through you and as you. Allow challenges and triumphs to sculpt the masterpiece you are meant to be.

We are wired to think in a certain way, and it is not easy to see a challenge and think of it as an opportunity for growth or to change our perception quickly. And to help you get a better grasp on it, feel invited and join me at my latest event.

You will learn how to create the life you love using tools that feed your faith, not your fear. We are capable of so much more than we realize. Part of it is realizing it and understanding more about our mental wiring and universal laws to manifest our desires.

Cheers to life!
