Disappointments

disappointmentHave you ever felt disappointed? Maybe you were expecting something to be different from how it actually showed up for you? I know that in my life, I have learned that disappointment is only something that was not meant to be. I have turned disappointment into knowing that something better is waiting for me.

Last week, I had a free ticket to a conference I really wanted to attend. However, there were hundreds of other people who also wanted to attend this conference. There was no guarantee that I would get a seat. After waiting for 1/2 an hour on a mile long line, I decided to head home. I could have felt disappointed but I knew that other things were pressing that needed my attention. So I was grateful for the ability to choose a different attitude. So next time, when the feeling of disappointment gushes into your being, take a deep breath in the knowing that you are being prepared for something better.  There is an appointment that is waiting for you when you let go of the disappointment!
