When I was little, I used to place all my struggles in my hand, hold it up and look at the sky. Zillions of stars and planets I could see embedded within its carpet… the infinite sky.
I compared them both and found my troubles to be so very tiny.
And my blessings, infinte, called upon me just as I invited but an ounce of them unto my heart. These blessings surrounded me and as came joy too.
Those troubles merely fit my hand; these blessings encompass my soul that contain infinte capacity.
My troubles dissipate and expose the unhindered light of happiness.
Looking up at the everpresent sky…
I should do that more often!
You could too!
“Surely, my struggles must be smaller than the entire Universe and her capacity to accommodate them and a zillion others.” – Vishal Singh
