Obstacle or Opportunity?

What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity?  Our attitude toward it.  Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity. – J. Sidlow Baxter

This week has been a bit about language and meaning so I had* to share this quote.

A key question is: what is our attitude towards the events of our lives?

Because, in truth, everything that happens (that we notice) is just an “event,” devoid of any meaning other than what we consciously and purposefully or unconsciously and automatically ascribe to it.

* Hmmm? Did I have to share this? Or did I just want to? Truth is, I don’t have to much of anything, I just wanted to.
