I feel I am at the start of a new life…leaving an old one behind. Being born in a life where certain challenges were created. Illness, divorce, abuse, addictions, death, bankruptsy.
Challenges that taught me that we have two choices in life when the going gets tough:
1. to give in and become a victim
2. to get up and become the person you can be.
I was fortunate to awaken at an early age. To reconnect with a great(er) power inside of me (and in all of us). Letting me know or feel that I had the energy inside of myself to stand up again and again. Teaching me how to love myself and how to use my talents to create a life worth living for and in.
The suffering left...when the misinterpretations and emotions I carried with me about myself, the others and the world shifted into feelings of compassion and understanding.
How do you face challenges? Did you reconnect with your ability to overcome them yet?
