I encountered a very unpleasant situation that frustrated me the other day.
Once I was able to step back from my initial emotional reaction to the unpleasant situation, I was able to see the bigger picture of why this event was all about.
This encounter was helping me to see a new way of doing something, which, in reality, was helping me to become better at something I am doing.
And the situation was also showing me a possible new direction. I find these events to be a part of synchronicity in action.
For me, there is no such thing as coincidences; everything happens for a reason, its my job to plug into that reason to understand the message.
