Today’s Gem of Gratitude #93

Today I am thankful for happy endings. Let’s face it, who, after having worked hard and patiently waited for something does not want to receive the benefit of a happy ending? I venture to think that “no one” would be the most accurate answer to that question.

I do not know about you, but I always want a happy ending. I always want things to work out in my favor, and I would be remiss if I implied otherwise. And I believe that desiring happy endings is a natural part of our makeup as human beings.

One thing that I have come to learn, however, is that my version of a happy ending may be quite different from someone else’s version, including God’s. And in conjunction with this, I have also learned that just because the “ending” that I receive differs from what I would have considered to be a happy one does not mean that it was not the correct ending. And if you think about it, a correct ending is really the happiest ending that one could ever receive.

So, I encourage all of us to not allow ourselves to be so invested in and tied to specific outcomes in life, but rather to invest ourselves in approaching each situation with the right attitude, the right perspective, and the right amount of focus and determination. If we do this, every situation will have no choice but to fall in line. #lovebythedrop
