We are often so centred on the postcard,
the picture perfect of our desires,
that we ignore the gifts of the unwanted.
Death and change are the ultimate gift giver.
Disease and pain can bring us treasures.
Rejection and abandonment are gifts of love.
Lies and deception can be acts of kindness.
Loss and lack are gifts of recognition and power.
Not having what we want and desire the most,
can be life’s answers to our deepest callings.
Stop and feel it fully, and while you do, remember,
this might be what you’ve been longing for all along.
