I’ve reached a point in this life where I kind of enjoy a challenge. Sounds weird, right? Challenges used to totally stress me out. Even small problems nagged at me; big ones made me obsess over them to the point of making myself physically ill. So how did this turn around? I’ve come to see a challenge as an opportunity for growth. And it’s not quite as simple as “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
I’m an eternal soul, just like you. Before I incarnated, I chose which challenges to take on in this lifetime. It’s not that I made a strict plan for this life, but more of a rough outline. Things will come up, my path may meander here and there, but the overall journey will include the lessons I chose to learn this time around.
With that awareness in mind, challenges take on a whole new meaning. When one pops up, I’m like, “Cool! What do I get to learn this time?” Being in the midst of a challenge isn’t always pleasant, admittedly, but the expanded awareness that results is worth the effort.
