If you understood the amazing gifts that every challenge brings to us, we'd actually celebrate them!
Of course, while we're in them, it's really hard to feel that way. But so many times, our sadness and frustration are the exact challenges that bring us the greatest gifts. We usually see this once it's all behind us: "Wow, I learned so much; my life is so very different having gone through that!"
And that realization is great. It allows us to see that what were difficult times and challenges actually brought us to a more expanded place.
So how would it feel to remind ourselves even while we're in the midst of a challenging time, to see it as an a hidden gift? Perhaps this challenge is actually a new beginning, and another step into a more expanded awakened YOU.
