The definition for STRUGGLING is: “Striving to achieve or attain something in the face of difficulty or resistance.” That truly says it all, including all the issues one can face during this tumultuous time.
Thousands of years ago, Epictetus said, “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.” It is precisely what determines how you learn your life’s lessons, leading to your destiny.
So much has happened, and continues to happen, during these last two years. Unbelievable things occur every day now in every area of our lives. Some have lost loved ones, homes or places to live, friends, acquaintances, etc. As a nation, we are literally struggling in so many ways. Your mind reels from everyday happenstances. So how do you overcome these outside stimuli?
Your reactions to each and every one of these will indeed guide your footsteps. Are you taking a deep breath, step into a quiet place for a moment, and become still? Is this one of your possibilities? It’s like the old adage of “Counting to 10” before you act in lieu of reacting immediately. When acting, you have taken the time to look at different solutions in order to select the right one for you. If you are reacting, chaos reigns. Which do you want to perpetuate?
It is in your power to do this, if you are willing to accept the idea into your reality. It can be small things or humongous ones! Mountains vs. mole hills.
Life goes on, nonetheless. Choose wisely.
God’s blessings on your journey!
