One of those days

We all have bad news days. Ones that cause us to fret and fear. The purpose of fear, truly, is to remind us to trust. There is a purpose to everything under the sun, and to every event in our existence.

Have faith that God will help you to handle it. That He can achieve the best outcome. Look for the lesson in what occurs. What are we here to learn? What is God showing us that we missed knowing? How can we grow through the experience?

Some things we worry about are not our lessons to learn, but other's. Because they are our children, or family, someone we love, a good friend we take upon ourselves the events that unfold in their life.

We forget that everything is not about us. Sometimes all we need to do is listen. Sometimes people don't want advice, just a sympathetic ear and heart.

What we can do is pray for their guidance, strength, and that they may learn and grow through what they came here to know, and that they may evolve in spirit on their journey in life.

We don't have all the answers, or all the wisdom for we too are only human. We are here to learn, to remember, and to progress.

Sometimes what we consider, at first, bad news turns out to be a blessing in disguise. A life changing event to a new and better path. Or a wake up call when we're on the wrong one. A time to reevaluate our priorities, our values, our mistakes, our goals and what is truly important.

Bad news can be a spirit call that brings us into alignment with the divine. We may learn to let go, to discover "thy will, not my will" may lead to greater happiness and peace.

We may rediscover a talent, a forgotten dream that we were meant to cultivate, use, and share that we may make a difference in the lives of others. Something we buried on the rollercoaster of life. It could be a good news day, unrecognized.
