Ripples #681: Dancing with the Universe!
For our tribe of 30,845 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
You can dance with the Universe,
but you don’t get to lead.

Cinderella may have been given
the dress, the shoes and the ride,
but she was the one who made
the choice to go to the ball.
You are given opportunities every day,
make your choice to do something with them.

Plenty of teeny and huge stuff happens over which we have little or no control; unfortunately we are sometimes so busy fretting over these unscheduled interruptions that we ignore the choices we still have, the options that are still available to us. Just because we cannot control everything doesn’t mean we have to throw up our hands and fail to get busy on the things we CAN control.
So if you’re feeling stuck this week, I invite you look between the lines of the STUFF you are facing and seek the choices and options you still have. And then find a way to dance with them!
P.S. I’m always seeking FRESH inspiration for future Ripples. You’ll notice that both of this week’s quotes are “written and submitted by” your fellow Ripples subscribers.
