When I think about all the struggles I’ve had in life I start to think about how grateful I am. Loving the struggle and overcoming it makes life better. The struggles are the best part or me. It may sound crazy, but it’s true.
When people think about struggling they instantly think it’s a bad thing. As if it’s something that will always hurt us. When you struggle it makes you stronger. When do you ever get stronger by doing what’s easy?!
It’s the resistance that makes you stronger and loving that resistance makes it easier for the struggle to go away. For those who get that I’m grateful for because those are the people, I want to be around 24/7/365.
Then we can find new struggles to overcome. Nobody wants to hear from the person who had everything handed to them. They want to hear from the person who has struggled and turned that struggle into something great.
Your struggle is not excess baggage. Loving the struggle and overcoming it makes life better because the struggle is your gift. It’s the one thing that you can use to get to the other side of yourself. It’s something that we all have.
We all struggle and falling in love with that struggle is something that I’ve come to appreciate. The ability to try and fail becomes the best part. Forgetting about the destination and living in that moment.
Because let’s face it, when we get to the detonation all we’re going to do is ask ourselves…
More struggle if we’re lucky!
It’s a concept that most won't understand until they start to love their life from a place of service. Love their life from a place of commitment. Loving the struggle and overcoming it makes life better BECAUSE of the struggle.
Doing the work doesn’t only feel good, it becomes a necessity for life. Because NO amount of money, possessions, relationships or time will ever replace the hard work that comes with your struggles. It’s in the doing that becomes the most important thing one can do.
Loving the struggle and overcoming it makes life better. Simple as that. If that doesn’t make sense to you the keep digging within yourself. Keep seeking further understanding. I’m not claiming I have it “all figured out” because as soon as I do, all of my hard work of getting to know myself goes away.
It’s something that only 1% of people truly understand. They are free. Not free of struggle, but free of trying to control every outcome of their life. Living in struggle doesn’t mean you’re unhappy or anything. It simply means you love to work and that not a trait to carry.
So let’s get to that struggle and work on ourselves with today’s WOD. To conclude today's post about Loving the struggle and overcoming it makes life better and with today’s WOD, you will definitely struggle I promise you that.
