Have you noticed how the solutions for our “problems” or challenges are always available when our minds are calm and without worries?
For example, when you have not shopped for groceries and you think you will not be able to make anything for lunch, but you turn out with the best dish ever. If you are stressed, you decide that the only way is to go out to eat or go shopping, but the possibilities are always there.
The other day I took some things to Goodwill to give away. I thought that it would be a good idea to walk. It was a beautiful day. So, I put all the stuff in a cart, got some water and my keys with an additional keyring to attach to the cart. As I walked out of my complex with this cart full of bags and boxes, a tire got loose and the cart fell on its side. The first thought was (‘poor me.’) I’ll need someone to come and help me. Then I took a deep breath and said to myself, “There are always several solutions to any challenge we have. maybe there is a better one.” I looked to see how the other tire was held in place. It had what I called a thick paperclip. I knew I was near the neighborhood office, I could get a paperclip there. Then, I thought about the keyring. It was perfect for the job. It only took a few minutes to think, decide what to do and do it. My mind was clear, and I had planned to enjoy my day no matter what. We always have several possibilities.
Today I invite you to see the different possibilities to your challenges. Don’t just take the first one that comes to mind. There may be a better one. There are infinite possibilities, and we can see them if our mind is clear.
