Building Up

26 Apr

Life is filled with experiences both good and bad. Nobody gets a life that’s a continual picnic of fun and laughter. The good times will certainly come but there will also be hard times to get through and sad times to face. Happy moments give us the patience and faith we need to endure difficult passages. When we’re pushing through sadness, disappointment, anger or other issues it can be hard to see the road ahead. But each moment we cope and each lesson we learn as we struggle along builds us up and makes us stronger. The key to strength is opposition. We know if we want to build muscle we must lift heavier and heavier weights. The opposing force as we lift strengthens us and builds us up. The same is true in our personal lives. Every time we navigate through hard times we become stronger and our resilience is increased. We build ourselves up emotionally with each trial we face. Nobody wants to deal with problems. They are annoying, clog up our way forward and complicate our lives. But problems bring great blessings with them and each time we overcome a difficult issue we gain something positive to take away with us. Sitting in an easy chair is comfortable and we can fall asleep as we sit tucked into the cushions. We can stay there for as long as we like but sitting comfortably will not move us toward our goals. A life of ease and comfort teaches us very little about who we are and the world we live in. If we want to achieve anything we must be willing to get up and courageously face whatever lies ahead. The road may have complicated detours and we may get lost a time or two but if we remain focused on our goals we will succeed. We know how to solve problems and find the answers we need to move forward. We can face hard times and gain the strength that comes as we push through them to the other side. Life is an incredible blessing. There isn’t anything we can’t manage and every dream is possible.

Sometimes it seems as soon as we work one problem out another appears. Our stamina may be tested and our desire to continue may be questioned. We can look at problems objectively, remove any emotion that is holding us down, and find resolution. We have all the tools we need to solve any problem we face. We are wise and intelligent, and capable of doing amazing things.

We may reach an impasse when there are no viable options available to solve our situation. When that happens, we can set the issue aside. As we move forward our lives will change and with new tools and increased knowledge we can return and resolve the issue. There is nothing we can’t figure out and no situation we can’t navigate. We can trust ourselves to find the answers and be confident we will succeed.

Today if you’re facing a difficult situation and are struggling to find the way through, remember how wise you are. The weight may be heavy but you are strong enough to lift it. Take your time, see everything clearly and decide on the way forward. All the answers you need are there for you. Be patient and trust your instincts. You can do amazing things and nothing is too hard for you to manage. Have faith and you will succeed.
