Since I was a kid, I have had a fascination with eagles. While all other birds fly away from a storm, an eagle flies directly into it. They carefully position themselves to take advantage of the incoming winds that eventually lift them high above the storm.
We can apply a similar idea to our personal storms. Rather than waiting for the storm to pass, face it head on. After all, the shortest way through is always the middle.
How many times have you heard someone say, “I would not take away any of my personal hardships because they have made me the person I am today.”
Clearly, they have received something positive from these painful experiences. So, if you have made a similar statement in the past, this understanding can assist you in your time of darkness. Your challenges will allow you to grow, and change the way you view the world when all is said and done.
Or perhaps there is something from your past that is weighing you down, and preventing you from enjoying life.
I am reminded of some wise words from a woman who approached me after one of my events:
“You cannot go forward until you have looked into your past. Otherwise you will always have something holding you back. Like a bow, it will keep pulling you back. Only once you take the time to go within and do the work can you truly be released.”
Perhaps these teachings can shift the way you view and navigate through your personal challenges.
Keep fighting my friends.
