So many times, what appears to be a "negative" is really a messenger bearing the most wonderful gifts! A "negative" forces us to see things from a completely different perspective (of course, the choice is always ours). But once we do...we see the most startling beauty. Strengths we never knew we had...inner fortitude, grace and...such deep reserves of love, kindness and tenderness. This is where the colors of our soul can really..shine.... in all their magnificence, These are opportunities to carry us to places within ourselves we never knew we had. Or to create those places from the raw materials of pain, heartache, disappointment, frustration, rejection...So many times, if we allow a "negative" to show us HER beauty, we will be amazed..and transformed.
