I feel your pain when a situation is not what you
imagined for your life or the life of another.
That could be your marriage or career, your spouse,
your child, parent, neighbor, or someone you don't
even know who lives far away and is hungry or in a
war zone or reeling from a mass shooting.
When we feel strong feelings about something, whether that be sadness, anger, or despair, it is a signal
that we are experiencing something we are not aligned with.
It is an opportunity to be aware of what we want INSTEAD!
These early warning signs can be useful to help us
identify what we want to move toward. When we can
accept that what IS is what we have to move from or
away from, we can still find contentment IN our
situation as a “Growth Edge” for our personal
development and evolution.
That does not mean we have to settle for any kind of
contentment WITH it.
We want to have the drive and motivation (or Better
Yet, INSPIRATION) to make changes in our (or the
world's) situation but not at the Expense of our
Well Being, which is all about being content with
When we strive to find solutions to issues we are
not content WITH from a place of Well Being (or
contentment IN), we have better outcomes.
We are able to work better with those we are in
conflict with, resulting in more of what we want.
We access higher intuition and creativity and are
able to make better choices and decisions.
If you are trying to make changes in your life or
the life of others, stop for a moment and notice
if you are trading your inner Well Being for nothing
and thus hindering your success.
There will be less friction and resistance to your
efforts when you approach this situation from
your contentment in your growth and learning while
you do the work of changing that which is
