There are times in our life when we wonder what in the world is happening to us. We simply don't understand it and the events that are unfolding. 'Why,' we ask? 'What am I supposed to do?'
We are here at this exact juncture of our life for a reason.
There is no other place we are supposed to be.
The people in our life are here to teach us.
The experience of our days is laden with wisdom
to be gleaned and cultivated.
Even negative situations
can offer profound guidance for our development.
There is divine support in the fabric of our days.
When we have mastered what we need to learn
from people and situations, we will move on.
