If you live with your eyes wide open long enough, you may find that this phrase holds genuine meaning. Everybody is touched by events we deem misfortunate, but sometimes, what appears to be a tragedy, is the fertilizer for the growth of a joyful life.
We’ve been facing obstacles since we were born into this world. The phrase “growing pains” sums up the very essence of tribulation as a tool for development. We live and we learn, but beware of the lessons you choose to discern from life’s trials. The outcome can be the difference between you becoming the victim, or the victor.
The loss of a job or a significant relationship can present great deal of negative energy that can prevent you from viewing the circumstance in a productive way. So, you may have not been hired for that dream job you interviewed for. This is the ideal moment for you to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Surely you have some significant goals you want to achieve, so perhaps that job was not the best means for you to reach your goal. Try again from a new vantage point. You’ve just been given an opportunity to learn resourcefulness in attaining your dream.
The end of a relationship is often quite distressing. It’s easy to let the pain of the separation from your partner or friend feed the demons within, but if you just allow yourself to understand the reasons you two had to part, you can embrace what is important to you in a relationship, find inner happiness, and ultimately, the perfect partner to share it with.
Drawing strength from the painful events in our lives is one of the most empowering things one can do for themselves. It’s an instant confidence booster, and a sure fire way to arm yourself with the tools necessary to “live your best life.” In other words, we may not have to be the product of our environment. Instead, we can become experts of finding, and cultivating the positive aspects of a situation to create an inspired existence.
