Life is more joyful when you can bend and detach yourself from specific outcomes.
~Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko
I had to be very flexible today and it was not easy. In fact, I was quite upset until I was able to detach myself and bend. I had to look at my challenge with fresh eyes. Only then was I able to see many possible solutions and release the negative feelings I was experiencing.
It was one of those days when nothing seemed to work; but, after assessing the situation, I was able to resolve it. It is not the outcome I expected, but it is satisfactory. Everything that happens in our lives, happens for a reason. We will not see it until after the situation and other outcomes have come to pass.
I can breathe easier, now; and, I am more joyful than I was earlier. By allowing ourselves to be flexible, bend and detach ourselves from specific outcomes, we will be able to move through life easier and happier.

By letting go of the belief that I am nobody special, I have found more love and joy in my life. ~ Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko
It is in those times when we feel that we are nobody special or that we are simply not good enough that negative feelings creep in to bring down our self-esteem and cloud over our positive energies. Some time ago, I came to realize that no matter who I am or what I do or whatever happens to me, the sun will still shine for me, no matter what. The birds will still sing and the wind will still blow. And, as long as I believe, God still loves me! I just need to be open to receive.
God’s love is in so many things and is in so many people. All we need to do is open our eyes and truly see all our blessings. My life is not perfect (no one has a perfect life), but I am grateful for all the love and blessings I have in my life. Today, I had a bit of a setback that I could have allowed to bother me to cause angst, worry and other negative feelings; however, upon a moment of reflection I know in my heart that these negative emotions are not going to make the latest challenge go away. Positive attracts positive. So, I resolved to give my worries to God and focus on the positive. I can only take care of me in the moment, from one thought to the next and one action to another.
Challenges are best met with a clear head and happy heart where we can come up with creative solutions. It also allows us to see that it is not the end of the world and there are positive options to every negative situation. The sun will continue to shine and the birds will continue to sing. I will ultimately come out just fine from this setback because I believe I can and because I am more than good enough to manifest a solution. I am someone special and so are you!
