We all have days when life’s challenges seem to be great, and our strength or determination can falter momentarily in the face of these demands.
The older I get the more I understand that these challenges are all part of our growth as human beings. While not a new concept, it is indeed an important one. We all need a little hard work! We need challenges to prosper and become the people we are destined to be! We cannot expect smooth sailing all of the time.
If life were easy and we cruised through each day with no demands on our time or our energy, we would never experience the full spectrum of emotions, the highest of highs and lowest of lows that truly teach us about humanity and life on earth.
Challenges can be big or small and may present in love, in relationships, in work, in all sorts of circumstances and life events.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said ‘ Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail’.
This is a beautiful quote, full of strength and determination and it serves as a poignant reminder that no matter what we attract into our lives, we can handle it! (A good friend reminded me of this last week and she was right!)
Meeting each challenge head on is character building, humbling and develops strength of spirit. So no matter what challenges life presents you with, remember that you too can rise above, find the resilience you need within you and keep moving forward!
