Not exactly the time of year to talk about disappointment.
This is supposed to be a time of gift exchanges, delicious desserts and a whole lot of holly jolliness. Right?
Well, not for everyone. For some, this is the time of year stacked with one disappointment after another.
No matter the reason for your disappointment, there is something of value that can be found within the experience that has left you disappointed.
Have you been rejected? That’s a big DIS whether it was personal or business.
Been assigned something? You’ve been APPOINTed. Whether that assignment was by choice or not, what you do with that assignment is up to you.
Speaking of APPOINTMENT, the DISappointment has left you somewhere. Physically and/or emotionally.
Now it’s up to you to take a moment, with this unscheduled, unplanned disappointment and reflect, regroup and maybe even release (let it go) in order to concentrate and make decisions about your future.
Maybe a disappointMENT is meant to catch your attention for a moment. Is there something you were meant to see, learn, observe or even teach?
The biggest disappointment on the planet is losing a loved one and that pain lasts and the disappointment revisits unannounced and unexpectedly. Losing someone always forces us to look at our own mortality, our current priorities and how different moving forward will be.
That movement can be good or bad depending on the perspective you choose to have.
There are so many other losses that leave us disappointed, but within those disappointments we have the opportunity to be both refined and defined by what we choose to learn.
Have faith that our disappointments are sometimes divine appointments to show us a way we never would have thought to go.
Make the most of your APPOINTMENTS and be patient with others who are navigating theirs.
Working on finding the appointments within the disappointments right there with ya,
