Find Peace in the Struggle
Life is a combination of every emotion under the sun.
We live for the moments of happiness, joy, excitement, and all of the wonderful things that energize us, inspire us, and make us feel complete.
But what about the tough stuff?
Broken relationships, body disappointment, poor health and disease, financial struggles…
I believe that some of the most powerful growth experiences of our lives will always come from our struggles.
We won’t necessarily appreciate that struggle in the moment. In fact, we might hate it and question why something so awful is happening to us.
But there’s a lesson and opportunity for growth under it all.
When you feel these intense struggles throughout your life remember…
…Thousands or even millions of other people have also experienced this struggle and you are not alone.
…Life is cyclical and better times are coming.
…You can become curious about the circumstance rather than fill yourself full of fear and worry. Seek meaning and lessons. Ask what is the lesson in this experience for me.
…And simply know that you are up-leveling as a person in some way.
You will be stronger, better prepared, and a more solid individual from this experience.
I know that it’s hard to see opportunities in struggle, but I promise, if you can shift your perspective, not only will the struggle be easier to manage, but the experience also won’t be nearly as painful.
The only thing we can really control in life is how we react to things. Manage this well and so much changes.
I’d love for you to reply and share your thoughts with me.
Wishing you well,
Coach Erinne Guthrie
