Beauty in the Struggle
I've been doing a lot of self reflecting lately. Reflecting on certain things that have happened in my life over the last 2 years. Let's just say the struggle has been real in certain areas but I am now at a point where I am finding the blessings in the lesson and understanding that struggle, at certain points in your life, is not only inevitable but necessary.
The thing about struggle is that it molds us into who we are meant to be, teaches us how to overcome adversity, and prepares us for what's to come next in our lives. Struggle is literally the setback that's a setup for a comeback if you choose to look at that way as opposed to throw yourself a pity party. Struggle forces us to look within and figure out how we can make things better, what we can do differently in our lives to turn a "bad" situation into a better one and it also pushes us to think on a more innovative level.
It's only when you get sick and tired of being sick and tired that you will REALLY make a change. Struggle teaches us to keep pushing even when life decides to push back, it teaches us to just do it, whatever it is. Struggle teaches us that when it comes to our goals and dreams, plan B is just another way to make plan A work. Struggle forces us to grow, grow up, learn to lean on something greater than ourselves in order to keep going and that sometimes it's necessary for everything to fall apart in order for it to come together.
