Adversity, what is it to you? Some feel that is just bad luck, some think it is just something that needs to be lived with and so it is their way of life. To some, it what they feel they deserve and for others it is something unpleasant that happens to people that they neither know or care about so is not their concern. It is, for some, something to run from; it has been defined as problems, pain, suffering, and wounds. There are those who see it as a reason to be the victim and garner sympathy or a good reason to be miserable; some people just like to wallow in it.

Oliver Wendell Holmes said,”Trouble (adversity) creates a capacity to handle it.” This is true because adversity is actually your life lesson, your curriculum for learning to create the whole, balanced, productive, prosperous and abundant life that you deserve.

If you feel you have it bad and wait around for worse to happen, and it will if you are waiting for it, you will find that “bad” looked pretty good. This is the thought process of a good 95% of the population. By investing the time to read and think about changing your thoughts to a more positive vein, you have moved in to the 5% that have chosen to change their thought process for the better. It has been proven that when you change what you think about, what you think about changes and that process also changes the way you act. For instance, M. Kathleen Casey said that, “Pain is inevitable but suffering is optional.” It is all in how you think about it.

So I challenge you to turn your thoughts and feelings around so that you do indeed change the way you think, so that what you think about changes. When you accomplish this you will find that your life will start to become exactly what you truly truly want and you will begin to receive the best of everything that you deserve. To your best outcome and highest good, Chessie
