Lightbulb Bigger Than You

Bigger than you

Waves crash endlessly upon the shore. The heat of summer is relieved by the cool winds of autumn, then winter, then spring and summer again and again in an ever-repeating cycle.

The forces that make it all happen and keep it all going are truly awesome. Though they can be explained and understood to a degree, they are impossible to fully comprehend.

In this life there is much that you can influence, much that you can do, and much that you can accomplish. Even so, there are many other things about which you can do nothing but accept, experience and stand in awe.

Sometimes the best thing to do with life is allow yourself to feel its wonder and beauty. Sometimes it is helpful and even comforting to remember that there are things you can never change.

For by acknowledging what you cannot do, you more fully appreciate and utilize those things you can do. By accepting and valuing that life is bigger than you, your own perspective is greatly enhanced.

Life is rich and varied and awesome beyond anything you can ever imagine. So go ahead and accomplish all you can imagine, for when you’re done there’s always room for more.

So many things in life, in the world outside and inside our homes, are things we cannot control. We cannot control other people, the weather, job cutbacks, economic hardships....but we CAN control how we respond to them.

Accepting that we cannot control some things is the first step to moving forward. I can live in the problem (which I cannot control) or live in the solution (adjusting my attitude and changing what I need to change in myself to adapt or move forward).

For me, the most important thing to remember and that helps me every day, is that God is bigger than any problem I could ever face and will see me through the rough days.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover, dear friends.

Hugs
Ann
