"Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation. Use it!"
All the experiences we have can be a source of positive learning. Even the people and events that challenge us or we view as "negative" have a lesson to teach us to help us move forward. Transformation requires us to be willing to change in a big way. It requires us to perceive things differently. We can take the experiences we have had (even the negative ones) and use them to change our lives and those of others. Our lives and the events we experience are the perfect vehicle to transform us into who we want to be. The first step? You have to be willing to believe that it is possible.
This week: Think about some of the experiences that have been significant in your life. If you still have some negative emotions attached to those experiences, begin to think about them in a different way. What did you learn about yourself from having gone through that experience? What strengths did you discover? Where has your life taken you as a result of that experience? Although you might not have chosen that experience if given a choice about it, what good has come from it? Now notice the experiences you have this week. Are there ways of viewing the experience which hold the potential for transformation? Is there a failure you've learned from? Is there a success that could move you in a totally different direction? Where are the opportunities in your experiences for transformation. If possible, do some writing or journaling about it. Allow yourself to imagine change coming from an experience in your life. When you do this, you can begin to see the possibilities for change in everyday experiences.
