So, don’t fear painful experiences. Don’t run away from it!!
I once happen to see television star Michael J. Fox being interviewed on NBC.You probably know he has Parkinson’s disease. Most of us would be knocked down by this condition. But MJF was fearless. I wondered when he said that he actually felt Parkinson’s brought many blessings into his life. He actually shared during the interview how it pushed out all the superficial things, making way for much richer ones as WISDOM,UNDERSTANDING And LOVE!!
Such a powerful thought indeed: Life’s most powerful experiences are the very circumstances that introduces us to our best. During time of ease, we can get caught up in shallow persuits and pleasures. But Hard times cause us to go deep. The unmeaningful stuff fall aside and we awake to what is important.
Things like family, friends,relationships, presenting our best to the world, enjoying each day’s gifts and leaving the world better than we found it.
Every life is terminal. No matter how long we get to live, we are all headed for the same end. When you remember that before we know it we will all be dust. The things that currently limit you, like fear,pride and past disappointments, just fall away. And you discover that time to shine- and be great- really is now.
HATS-OFF TO YOU Michael J. Fox. FOR SHARING COURAGE AND FEARLESSNESS.FOR YOUR HONEST CONFESSION. FOR BEING A LIGHT IN A WORLD WITH FAR TO MUCH DARKNESS.
