Today’s blessing is that I’m finding myself facing contrast, and welcoming it.
Contrast is sort of like unwanted experience.
But at a certain point it’s not right to call it unwanted as though that’s a bad thing. Because contrast helps us to hone and refine and reach for what we do want.
It’s a bit like writing a draft. Is a draft a failure because it’s not as good as the revision? Of course not.
I remember someone saying that a first draft is really your first best try. It’s creating our first best try that gives rise to our desire for something more perfect, more a match for our desire and intention.
So I’m facing some contrast in life around the subject of money, and it’s actually very welcome because without this contrast I don’t think I could yet have focused as clearly as I’d like to on that subject.
Or better yet…
It’s because I’m ready and in a good place to focus on the subject of money that I’m now receiving some contrast to help me refine my desires and shift my thinking about it!
So the contrast itself is truly welcome, while I appreciate all that has transpired to make me better able to handle it.
