Working Through Adversity

man-pulling-hair-out-2Ever feel like you just want to pull your hair out?  I know it looks like I already did, but mother nature beat me to the punch.

Working through Adversity can be very challenging but rewarding when you get to the other side.

Remember as always….It’s Only Stuff

“A problem can be compared to a mountain, if you perceive it by looking up at it from the bottom it will seem daunting and unachievable.  However if you face the mountain and go through it, you might discover that it was only paper thin” – Dr. Ronnie Kaye

I don’t recall the exact words, however that was the idea.  We struggle only to realize that the problem was not that difficult to deal with after all.

My experiences have led me to follow a few simple guidelines.  Maybe they might help you to realize that you are not alone and we all go through adversity in one way or another.

  • We are all on a journey without as much as a compass.  If you can’t find your own compass, seek others that will assist you in finding your own way. (there is no shame in asking for help)
  • Take a walk in Nature if at all possible.  The stillness and tranquility will do wonders and will assist you with a clear unobtrusive environment to think in.
  • Be kind to yourself.  I try not to beat myself up, cause it doesn’t do shit anyway.
  • Be willing to change old patterns and replace them with new & improved ones to achieve a better outcome. Be flexible.

All we can do is search for the proper path for each of us to follow.  As always be safe in your journey…
