Turning the Corner
Every moment in life holds the potential to be a turning point. Some may be anticipated and others often catch us off guard. But it’s the unexpected ones that have the greatest impact and shape the course of our lives
As we move through February, many of us have been through a storm of sorts. Many of us are also heartbroken with the shock waves across Turkey and Syria. Everything is being shaken up right now—within and around us.
Whatever intersections and crossroads are in front of us, it can feel like we’ve been battered by the winds and waves of life.
But just like a sailor who weathers the storm and can now see the shore, we too embrace opportunities instead of the problems. The turning point shows us signs of possibility all around us.
Can we trust that everything works out for our highest good by releasing the tight grip we have on trying to control outcomes? Letting go doesn’t mean we are giving up, it means we are making space for whatever needs to unfold. There is pure beauty in trekking into the unknown.
A Turning Point
This is a time to take responsibility for everything, to think for ourselves and trust our hearts. It is an opportunity to understand that we need to tap into our imagination.
Can we embrace love, gentleness, and peace instead of conflict and hostility? Hostility only leads to conflict and chaos, and it’s time to take break up with this state of mind.
This is a moment of transformation and evolution. To move forward, we can stop striving against ourselves and each other and resist the urge to fight. Let go of the need to be right and the stress that comes with it.
Fear may have been a constant companion, but it’s time to welcome acceptance and flow into our lives. Can we trust that everything pans out and that there’s always a way? Are we at a turning point as powerful creators who have only scratched the surface of our abilities? What are we ready to create in our lives?
When it comes to a turning point, Helen Keller reminds us that “A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn.”
