What’s In Your Toolbox? Why Me?

tools

Normally, I think of a toolbox as a place to find something to help me fix whatever needs fixing.  It’s a tool, a hammer, a screwdriver or something of that nature that will fix whatever is broken.  Not that I’m really good at that type of labor or fixing, but that’s what I think of when someone mentions toolbox…until now.

Because I’ve been trying to understand why I’ve been experiencing such turbulence in my life these days.  Simply put, things just haven’t been easy.  But I’ve been using my experiences to gain strength for sure even though I’m sometimes feeling pretty weak.  Since I can only understand me, I figure that each experience, each time I have to go out of my comfort zone and each time I have to ‘fix’ something in my life or help someone else with theirs, I am adding tools to my life toolbox.  Later, I can simply reach into my life toolbox and pull out a memory of an experience in order to help them or me fix whatever is in front of us at the moment.  Does this make sense to you?

Using each experience as a tool in my toolbox of life in order to help myself and others.

 So today when you’re tempted to wonder, “why me?” take heart knowing that you are filling your toolbox with another experience that will help you and others down the road.

That’s ‘Why You!

Shine On!

  1. I can’t tell you how many times I have said, “I need my own tool box” around my house. I can never seem to find what tool I need…after reading this post, it seems to be true, metaphorically as well!!
