Thought For the Day: Overcoming Challenges

Thought For the Day:
“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
-Winston Churchill

The only way to move on from a challenging situation is to confront it, look it in the eye and move through it.  Once you confront the situation and look it in the eye, you will see that it is nothing more than a mere teaching exercise of temporary nature.  You may even thank the situation for existing in order to help show you areas that you want to grow in and habits you are ready to release.  As you move through the situation, you will see that it is temporary, and therefore not worth stress or sadness.

One of the most challenging lessons to learn in life for me has been to remain joyful and not let ANYONE or ANYTHING steal my joy.  Yogi Bhajan says, "Happiness is our birthright", so I must hold onto that birthright and keep it with me at all times no matter how difficult or how trying the situation is to the spirit.  

Continue to confront your challenges.  Challenges are often mirrors reflecting back areas that we still remain fearful in.  So confront the areas that you are still operating fearfully or hesitantly in.  What is holding you back from radiating your most confident self?  Why are you still in a situation that makes you operate fearfully?  Are you moving through the fear or are you simply standing in it paralyzed...?

Continue to affirm and remember that each affirmation is movement in itself.  Sending you the momentum to live joyfully full of love every breath of your life!
