HOW TO BE IN THE MOMENT – 101 Little Tips

TIP #22 
When you're beset by problems or limitations, refocus on possibilities.

In every human condition lie the seeds of its opposite. In the Whole Scheme of Things, pain does not exist without the hope of relief. The same with sadness, discord and want.
Nurture those seeds; sprout and grow with them despite the poor soil.

Thanks Olivia! I pray every day that I won't take for granted the blessings I enjoy for which I've never known a lack -- like peace, freedom, love and others. But can I REALLY know what blessings they are without their loss? Probably not. So is life.
