Life Lessons.

Reading between the lines.

I love this quote! I have it taped up my fridge as a daily reminder that what we want and what we really need are often two different things that we can’t always differentiate or have much control over. However, having faith and knowing that everything is happening for our best, despite it not always looking that way, has comforted me time and time again on rainy days.

“When I asked God for strength, He gave difficult situations to face. When I asked God for brains and brilliance, He gave me puzzles in life to solve. When I asked God for happiness, He showed me some unhappy people. When I asked God for wealth, He showed me how to work hard. When I asked God for favors, He showed me opportunities to work hard. When I asked God for peace, He showed me how to help others. God gave me nothing I wanted, He gave me everything I needed.”   -Swami Vivekananda
