“It is a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.” Somerset Maugham As we learn, we grow. As we grow, we realize that there are qualities that make the journey in life much easier. Wisdom through trial and error is a gift. For instance, if we are flexible and do not resist change, a challenging or scary situation can turn out to be magnificent and life altering event. If we stop seeking approval from others and recognize our own value and worth, then we become the victor as we trust our own intuition and are empowered by the act of making the best choices for us. If we refuse to accept anything but the best, then we can accept that whatever is happening in our lives at any given time is perfect for the lesson that is before us. Rigid behavior gets us nowhere but more and more frustrated. Relying on praise from another keeps us trapped in a self-imposed cage never really free to experience all that the world has to offer. A closed mind to the belief that we are worthy of the best has the potential to stall the continued positive growth that we could be otherwise enjoying. So as we move forward in life, if we choose the belief that everything that comes our way has the possibility to uplift our spirit, broaden our horizons, and keep us going in a positive direction and refuse to accept anything less, the experience that you will have most definitely will be the best. Ask, believe and receive.
