Life as we know will present us with numerous challenges but the most important things is how we handle things…we can see them as obstacles in our path or see them as opportunities for personal growth. We can’t always see it at the time but there’s something to learn in every situation.
It’s a good reminder too that the Universe is always supporting us even though it can feel like it’s picking on us sometimes!! It also never gives us more than we can handle so the invitation here is to take a step back from whatever is happening and clear any emotions first. If you’re trying to deal with things caught up in the fog of emotion it will magnify any challenge.The key thing here is to find inner peace whatever is going on and feel empowered to handle things.
When you clear the emotion you can look at what’s going on….maybe there’s a deeper lesson here? We often judge things as good and bad and as we talked we feel unsettled when any kind of change happens and can slip into victim mode of ‘Why me?’ Most of us don’t like change either as it pushes us out of our comfort zone but in my experience change can also shake us up to where we’re supposed to be
One of my favourite quotes is, ‘It’s not about stopping the storms and learning to dance in the rain.’ In the past if any challenges happened I would bury my head in the sand and pretend it wasn’t happening or spiral into depression trying to distract myself with different activities mostly partying. What’s different now? As I mentioned earlier now I understand life from a metaphysical perspective and I trust that everything is happening for my Highest Good and it might take a while to see it but there will be a gift and underlying spiritual lesson there for me.
Can you relate to seeing challenges as obstacles or opportunities for growth? How do you handle changes in your life?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts,
