Doubt is the opposite of faith, but sometimes doubt can be a pathway to faith.
Weakness is the opposite of strength, but sometimes weakness can be the pathway to strength.
Addiction is the opposite of sobriety, but sometimes addiction can be the pathway to sobriety.
Infidelity is the opposite of fidelity, but sometimes infidelity can be a pathway to fidelity.
Failure is the opposite of success, but sometimes failure can be the pathway to success.
“Enough” by David W. Jones
It pleases me to know the kind of person I have become: most definitely imperfect; but imperfectly whole and happy. It feels extraordinary to now say “I love me!” and feel the authenticity of the words.
Gratitude abounds for a balance I feel within me the majority of the time. In being thankful for what is, I must have gratitude for what brought me here: heartaches, miracles, problems, blessings, difficulties, good fortunes, setbacks and lots of love. All that and more shaped me even though I frequently resisted with great tenaciousness.
Thankfully life is stronger than my will and when it overtook me, real happiness began. How wonderful it is to lose to the goodness of life and the power of love.
A loving heart
is the beginning
of all knowledge.
