When your heart gets slammed with sorrow, it can feel so overwhelming, can't it? Loss, grief, disappointment — all of that can feel so much bigger than us. If we aren't paying attention, our disappointment can begin to rule us — it can become our master if we don't get mastery over it.
I want my sorrow and difficulty to serve me — to strengthen and grow me, don't you?
We want our disappointment to serve us, not the other way around.
What or whom we choose to serve, we willingly give authority over us.
So, when life disappoints you, who or what do you serve? Do you serve your sorrow or disappointment? Do you pay it homage by bowing to it and letting it control you? You don’t have to. You can be like Anna instead...
