#MindfulMonday | The Adventure of Life

 

Our lives will always be a mixture of crazy, peaceful, sexy, silly, tragic, enchanting moments; never just one or the other.

Rather than searching to separate the “good” from the “bad,” seek to see all experiences as necessary to the other; appreciate that you fully know joy because you have thoroughly known pain.

Look at what is “right” about what is “wrong” in your life, how the ups influence the downs, and vice versa.

Once you see all separate events as part and parcel of the full experience of life, you are less at the mercy of its whims, and more able to roll with what comes.

Life then becomes more of an adventure to be enjoyed, and less of a trial to endure.
