It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome. 

William James

January 22nd/23rd - opportunities are there if we look for them.


In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity. 

Albert Einstein

Once discovered, such opportunities are like valuable diamonds hidden in the sand. 

Every aspect of my life is changing, so I’ve decided to stay focused on what reminds me that all will be well and make the most of every situation.  To remember that difficulties are opportunities to better things.  

I’ve learned that you don’t dwell on everything you think your life lacks. Instead, you pay attention to what’s going right.  We don’t have to live in the shadow of what could have been if we shine a light on what’s working to allow it to grow.

They say that to keep balance in your life, we should do something for our mind, body, and soul every day and do something that will make today better than what’s come before. Remembering to look at all the possibilities. When we’re worried, we tend to see only a few paths out of a challenge.

Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself its own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it. 

Neils Bohr

It’s very important to remember that time passes and things change. Always. The only constant is that the sun will rise each morning. When we face challenges in our life, we need to be grateful for them. Each challenge you face will teach you more about yourself and make you a better person.

Opportunities come brilliantly disguised as problems and challenges.


When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it's going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.

So true about challenges, Ma. Each of them teach us something, no matter how difficult they may be to get through them. It is good, like you mentioned, to concentrate on reminding ourselves all will be well at the end of our struggles. Lying awake a few nights ago, I do believe God told me "this too will pass" and like other struggles I know this too will pass and growth will have occurred during it.

I saved this because it hit me GOOD:
Once discovered, such opportunities are like valuable diamonds hidden in the sand.

But then I read the one that said "Life will not wait for us to live it!

That is such a simple but awesome TRUE thought. I know it, looking back, tht is a fact!

Good one MA!

I keep staring at that solitary red balloon in your second graphic! Neat, in its simplicity.

"When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it's going to launch you into something great." I'm going to cling to that promise ... and fasten my seat belt!

This quote carries the most weight with me, the way I see things, "It’s very important to remember that time passes and things change."
