It’s taken some time to process, but I am ready to share.
Say, you get a gift for Christmas. You don’t want the present, but hey, you get anyway.
What if I told you I was going to cut your monthly income by 1/3?
A week before Christmas break a company I teach for canceled most of their lessons with me. From one day to the next I lost a whole 1/3 of my teaching hours – 1/3 of my income.
That’s scary, that’s chaos – and it is also…
Good news. Great news.
Am I worried? – Yes.
Do I like it? – Not hardly.
It is necessary? Absolutely.
Right before Christmas life decides to throw some snowballs my direction. Now, it’s just how I respond (not react) that sets the direction of my life.
I’m looking at this as a gift, one of the greater gifts because life is giving it. That means it comes with more blessing, opportunity and growth than my own gifts.
