“To love only what happens, what was destined. No greater harmony.” – Marcus Aurelius
Why are the things that are happening to you a good thing? Why is everything precisely as it is supposed to be? What is the reason now for everything being so good?
At first glance, it is easy to write these questions off. Maybe you think things are going wrong. Maybe you think things are exactly the opposite of what they should be. But what does that change? Nothing. Regardless of your view of things, they are what they are. No amount of disappointment or frustration is going to change that. You aren’t going to change the world by being mad at it. You are going to change the world by seeing why this moment is the perfect moment for action. You are going to change the world by seeing why things are as they should be.
It is possible to see virtually anything from any perspective. You can choose to see winning the lottery as a problem because of all the lottery winners who went broke. It’s possible to see illness as a reminder to savor life and try something new. I’m not saying it’s easy, but it’s possible.
Take time to ask yourself, why are things going right at this moment? Why are my present circumstances good? We are much more creative and capable when we are positive. By thinking this way, you’ll take the situation you have come to love and make them even better.
