Even Though: 08.08.05

Even though you have every right to be angry, you have every reason to let
it go.

For when you let go of your anger, you make more room for joy. Even
though your first impulse may be to retaliate, you’re likely to be better
off when you reconcile and forgive. After all, when you’ve been hurt, it
makes no sense for you to prolong the hurt with your own attitude and
actions. Even though the world is often cruel and unfair, it does not have
to get you down. The more fully and willingly you accept what is, the more
power you have to improve upon it. Even though many things will come along
that could be frustrating and annoying, you can always choose to respond
with patience and with grace. By so doing, you’ll be building strength as
well as focusing your energy in a more positive and productive direction.
Even though events may not go your way, you can continue to move in the
direction of your own choosing. Success depends very little on being given
what you want, and much more on becoming the best you can be. Even though
life has its setbacks, disappointments and tragedies, they pale in
comparison to the new and positive possibilities that increase with each
passing moment. Choose to fully live the immeasurable blessing that is your
life, and every day will move you forward.
