Blessed curse!April 3, 2020
May you live in interesting times.
May you find what you are looking for.
May you come to the attention of those in authority.
These are Chinese cursed blessings. When I first heard these, they inspired me to look at my life in a new way. I think that we all have blessings that we perceive as curses and curses that could be blessings. It’s all a matter of perspective. So I invite each of you in this, the year of the sheep, to discover your blessed curse!
Mine you ask?
I am constantly losing things, from my wallet to less important things. In my younger days I would get very mad, really mad, but then I started to realize that I also find things and never have less than I need. I found my Mom’s wedding rings twice, lost children, pets, money, trinkets, jewelry, and cool things in nature. Even as I tried harder to keep track of my things it continued to happen. Not until I could just shrug off any loss and hope that it would be found by someone who needed it or love it or enjoy it could I see the blessing through the curse.
What is your blessed curse?
