Look at issues as opportunities

waves seagulls and loveThis is advice to myself more than anyone else. I hate lecturing myself almost as much as arguing with myself but I guess I need it.

Issues come up. We are all human. We make mistakes and can even hurt or get hurt by someone we love. It could just be real life things getting on the way. We have two directions we can go when things happen. We can react and be upset and pull back or complain about it. Or we can CHOSE to respond in love and use it as an opportunity to prove your love and try to make them feel even closer.

Now of course this is easier to say than to do. But that’s kind of the definition of character and the right thing. It’s always easier to say than to do. This is where a best friend is important because you may have to vent a little and talk to someone you can trust.

kissing and  lovingI’ve also learned something else recently, your first reaction when you are dealing with drama is almost never the right answer. It’s important not to react to fast, to give yourself time to cool down and think about things sometimes.

Remember that in here your heart shows a lot more than in real life. And the more you want to react and pull back, the more valuable it is to respond with love. You will always gain more by responding in love.

Looking at problems as opportunities is NOT easy. But it’s easier than the alternative.

One response

  1. A lot of times people might think I am writing about someone, but it’s really more about me, lessons I’ve learned in here, usually by making them and sometimes by observing. Sometimes I use this to say something but I say more to myself than anyone else for sure. It’s not for ego either, it’s to remind myself about things and learn and grow. I’ve got as far to go as anyone. We’re all on a journey and (hopefully) a few of times the things I’ve seen and learned along the way will be helpful. But don’t take things too seriously. None of us are perfect and nobody requires you to be. And feel free to beat me up in here when you think I deserve it.

    Kisses!
