“Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and repeat to yourself, the most comforting words of all; this, too, shall pass.”– Eppie Lederer, columnist
If we want to move forward in our lives, we must learn to embrace our problems. We must learn to embrace walls, obstacles, failures, disappointments, mistakes. If you embrace them, you will learn more about them. You will learn more about yourself- your strengths and weaknesses. You will learn more about the things that you thought you know. You also will learn more about the things that you do not know.
Troubles are here to strengthen us, not to harm us. And if you want to understand your problem, if you want to understand your trouble, you must view it from a positive perspective. You must accept it as a teachable moment for you. You must open your mind to learn from your trouble. That is the only way you can move through it. Because you can’t get to where you want to be if you don’t know how to enjoy your trouble. Your trouble is part of your life. It is part of our lives. You cannot live your life without coming in contact with trouble. It is there, whether you like it or not.
People are not happy because they want a trouble-free life. Is it possible to have a trouble-free life? If you know where to find it, let me know. Happiness is when we learn how to live with our problems. It is only when we accept our problems that we can find happiness. Life is not without problems. They are part of our lives.
Are you ready to embrace your problems?
