What we don’t want illuminates what we do want.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

It can be frustrating and disheartening when something we don’t want occurs. Our attention is pulled away from what we potentially want in order to deal with the situation. We seemingly waste time and effort to avoid an undesired outcome.

Yet there is value in this temporary shift of focus. It helps us understand what we desire more clearly. In learning to sidestep unwelcome events, we’re directed onto the path toward what we wish for.

Today’s message invites me to recognize the usefulness of an undesirable event. Knowing exactly what I desire is a blessing, regardless of how I reach that clarity. I’m grateful for the understanding that arises from unwanted situations.

How about you? How to you feel about undesired events?
