Shaped By Life: Twisted or Transformed?
When my late wife was killed in a car accident (March 2004)
I knew it would shape me.
It wasn’t a question of if, only a question of how.
Would it change me for the better or for the worse?
Would it move me towards who I hoped to become, or shape me into someone I didn’t want to become?
Would it move me toward my destiny in life or push me away from it?
I knew the choice was mine.
Whether it’s through the crushing blow of tragedy or the chipping away through daily demands and disappointments - life is going to shape us.
Some people become hardened, others more humble.
Some become cynical, others more grateful.
Some grow to resent life; others discover a deeper purpose to life.
Some wilt, others bloom. Some learn to hate, others learn to love.
Some become hopeless; others become resilient.
Some are blown off course; others are moved toward their destiny.
It’s not a question of if, only a question of how.
So let me ask you: How is life shaping you?
Are you becoming twisted into someone you don’t want to become or are you allowing life to transform you into the person you desire to be?
Are you allowing life to move you toward your ultimate purpose in life, or have you allowed the winds and storms of life to push you away from your desired destiny?
Our response determines the outcome. The choice is ours!
If I can in anyway help you to more fully live life on purpose or if you are currently navigating a major-life transition or tragedy - I would love to help. https://kenlroberts.com/kenlrobertslives
