“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.”~ Bernice Johnson Reagan
Good morning! Have you ever had a day or a week or a month where you feel you are walking around under one of those black rain clouds and the rain is only falling on you? Each time you take a step forward it is counteracted by two steps back?
The more we attempt to move forward and the more we aspire to accomplish, the more rain clouds we will run into. Why? Because change and challenge require that we push beyond our boundaries and step outside of our comfort zone. What feels like a rain cloud, is often just the water fertilizing the soil for a fresh dream or direction.
The next time you feel like a rain cloud is following you, look up and thank it for being present. Realize this is the fertilizing of fresh ground for a new dream and aspiration. Keep on challenging life as that is how we “discover who we are.”
I grow in positive ways from each challenge I face in life.
