Aside

From the Seeds of Discontent

Audio Version of Every Day Hope Message:

From the seeds of disorder and discontent sprout flowers of hope, courage and energy. That may seem like an optimist’s perspective – and perhaps it is – but life’s most vibrant beauty grows out of the darkest, soil-covered gardens.

Discontent is temporary, and while it is difficult and troubling in the moment, it is a brief storm that gives way to sun. In the same way, weathering life’s challenges gives way to a newfound appreciation for simple blessings.

Florence Nightingale said, “[If] there were none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach for anything better.”

Use your trials as a means to find a better way, to find your unique and powerful purpose. Leverage the challenges you face as instruments to reshape your reality into exactly what you choose it to be.

See disorder and discontent for what they truly are: tools that encourage you to reach higher, implements that embolden your purpose and stepping stones that allow you to recognize and seize the powerfully positive opportunities all around you.

life's most vibrant beauty
