The world owes you nothing. How's that for some light hearted Friday thoughts? It's true though. The world does not owe you a nice boss, or a good job, or a beautiful affordable home. The world does not owe you good health, or relief from emotional pain.The world does not even owe me a child. There is nothing this world owes any of us, and we've already been spoiled by the abundance this planet does provide.
As I prepare for the weekend I remind myself again that there is nothing in our life that can not be taken from us. Our homes, our safety, our loved ones. None of us has been promised a rose garden. There is however good news. The wonderful thing we have all been provided with is freewill. We are all free to find tranquility. We are free to find our centre. We are free to find our bliss.
Is life simply cupcakes and picnics? No, of course not. My friends, life is extraordinarily hard and deeply amazing. It is blood and tears, ashes and rain storms. It's not though how dark it gets that matters, it's whether you are looking up at the stars.
We are blessed. Jxx
