“I’ve always loved the idea of not being what people expect me to be.”
As we have been traveling on a road trip with 3 of my boys, and have had the pleasure of spending time with my brother and his family up in the Seattle area, it has given me the opportunity to contemplate how I got to this place in my life.
I started out as a feisty and determined “little madam” and I can assure you none of that has changed. I love to challenge myself, to grow and to help whoever I can along the way. I feel like the world needs people that are not just “followers” but those that are not afraid to be bold enough to stand out and almost be controversial. That is how amazing things happen!
So, as I think about me and what is important in this life, I realize that I am where I am because of the people I have in my life. Not everyone in my life is easy, and those are the ones that I am most grateful for. Having a child, a spouse, a coworker, a friend or an acquaintance that pushes every limit of our patience and understanding…those are the ones that help us grow into the person we are destined to be. They are our Angels in Disguise.
For some reason (and I am sure because I must have had some serious lessons to learn), I have had plenty of Angels in Disguise in my life, in fact, sometimes I keep having the same type of person in my life because obviously I haven’t learned what I need to yet 🙁
Have you ever thought about people in your life that are particularly challenging and perhaps considered that they may be really helping you? That they could be YOUR Angel in Disguise? I know when I think about people that really challenge me in this perspective it actually changes my reaction, helps me become a little less triggered and amazingly enough, to grow and become better at dealing with things. So what if…you thought of the most challenging people in your life as the ones that are really helping you to grow? Does that change anything for you? I would love to know! Comment below
Maybe some of this positive thinking is enough to get you through hump day!! Happy Wednesday my friends…
