Click here to listen to today’s Daily Power Prayer for Finding Value in Our Challenges!:
I used to avoid a lot of challenges. I thought it would be easier that way. However, as I go along I can honestly say that I’ve learned that when things FEEL hard, I can turn it around in my mind. I like challenges. I like the opportunity to grow and learn and challenges afford me that wonderful opportunity to expand the bounds of limitation.
There’s much more than a semantic difference in thinking things are hard or thinking they are challenging. When things are “hard and difficult” it can be very tough to imagine that they’re worthwhile. It can feel like we’re being punished, or like we’re making some sacrifice. Truly, there’s nothing for us to sacrifice. In every moment we can be challenged to choose Love. If we choose Love then we never have to make a sacrifice. Love is always going to bring us the greatest benefit.
This is what we’re training our minds to do. This is how we find freedom together. Together we choose Love, day in and day out. Together we face the challenge of unwinding the ego and releasing the habit of choosing separation and specialness in order to bring benefit to all beings by choosing Love and engaging life with a pure heart.
It’s not easy, but we can enjoy the challenge rather than struggle under the weight of it being hard. Because it is so challenging it’s wonderful to go together.
Thank you for being my prayer partner! I love you and I thank God for you, each and every day!
I learn and grow through all of my challenges.
