Challenges, Threats, Opportunities

Each day is filled with challenges, threats, and opportunities. 
Identifying each, so that they can be faced with the least fear is a key to a happy life.
Farmer Fred tells me that fear is False Expectations Appearing Real. Of course, sometimes unpleasant expectations are actually true threats. Completely out of our control in many cases, we must face what comes.
 That is when the threats can be taken as challenges and those challenges  bring opportunities. 
Opportunities give us a chance and a chance is all we need. Stripped down, it's really the only thing life offers. 
The mornings have held peaceful time for reflection in GriggsDakota.
