Today’s affirmation is:
“The roadblocks in my life are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.” (click the affirmation to hear the mp3 version)
Today’s affirmation is a testament to our ability, indeed, our necessity to turn life’s obstacles into opportunities. There is an old saying that life is what happens to us on the way to our dreams. We think we are so smart and we have it all figured out and yet life, inevitably, throws us for a loop.
We have a choice. We can sit and pout because things didn’t turn out as we’d scripted them. Or, we can push forward with renewed determination.
Sometimes – as much as we hate to admit it – the universe’s wisdom or God’s is sounder than our own. The very thing that messed up our perfected plans can be the key that unlocks whole new possibilities.
It’s all in how we process the event and what we choose to make out of it. However, we can only find the key when we view the detour as the blessing it truly is rather than as a curse.
So today when something seems to be going wrong and you feel that stress, frustration, or anger rising; stop look around and see how this “setback” might actually be a setup for something better.
May your day be filled with roadblocks ready to transform into shortcuts to your success and happiness.
“This year I am absolutely committed to being the person I came here to be!”
