What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude toward it. Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity.” ― J. Sidlow Baxter
Looking back at this week, with all the stress and challenges I encountered, the one thing I’m holding on to is keeping a positive attitude and knowing that I am doing my best to turn them into opportunities to grow. It is not an easy feat to stay positive when often times it’s easier to just give up. I learn to look from all perspectives and seeking strengths from others around me. You will be surprised if you open your mind and truly see, even the tiniest thing seems big and exciting. It’s all about the attitude.
Today after weeks of rain and cold nights, I finally saw some tiny new shoots coming out from the soil in my vegetable garden. The flowering fruit trees, the sunshine and of course this day being Friday all keep me in the right path to stay positive and sweep away what’s left of the negative thoughts and frustrations. My advice is to think about the new possibilities from the challenges and march on. Do your very best and hold your head high. No regrets.
