… they make us better.

In fact, those bad times make us stronger, wiser and smarter. They push us to expand beyond our horizons and develop new skill sets. They don’t allow for complacency. They demand transformation.

The bad times are indeed the best times, but unfortunately many people only appreciate the good times. They want things to be easy and laced with rainbows and butterflies. But rainbows and butterflies don’t promote growth, they reward it.

Many of us shut down in the face of bad times. We numb ourselves from having to face the pain. But that only succeeds in keeping us stuck in a numbing void where we never grow.

Transformation is the path forward and although everyone wants to be transformed to some extent, no one wants to go through the pain of the transformational process. It’s never easy and generally requires sitting into the pain until it can be transmuted into higher frequencies.

The next time you want to feel victimized because you are stuck in some bad times, remember that the bad times are actually the best times, they make us stronger, better and wiser. They push us to become the being we are here to become. They push us to see what we are capable of. And the good times? Well, they are just the rewards for having done the work. Game on.

th… it’s trying to tell you something.

Every event and every situation that shows up in your life is guiding you along your path. There are NO coincidences.

The events and situations that occur in your life are very purposeful – they are happening to awaken you and bring you to a higher level of consciousness and happiness. They are specifically bringing you to a better place – if you can pay attention to them.

Unfortunately, most people do not pay attention to their lives. They are sleepwalking their way through their lives – bumping into the same walls and hitting the same obstacles over and over again. They run the all too familiar mouse wheel of existence because it is anesthetizingly familiar.

Pay attention to your life. It has something to teach you. Wake up and listen.

Life whispers to you through every feeling you have, subtly saying, “wake up… make a turn here…. you are unhappy. Get off this road.”

Life whispers to you through every new person you encounter.

Life whispers to you through every experience and every new road you venture down.

Life whispers to you through every line in a movie and every lyric of a song.

It is always whispering… “listen to me.. pay attention to this…. this will help you… this is the answer you are seeking.”

Listen to the whispers of your life and let them lead you to the life you are meant to be living. If you do not pay attention to your life, you will miss the subtle bends in the road and may end up in a ditch.

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR LIFE, nothing haphazardly happens to you. Every situation/event is carefully orchestrated to bring you towards higher learning and a higher understanding of yourself and your needs.

Wake up. Don’t let your life pass you by without getting the meaning from it. Pay attention and catch the open doors of opportunity before they slam shut in front of you.

Your life is your road map to success… pay attention to it; it is ALWAYS trying to tell you something.
