"If you resist change, you resist life." -Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.
// Let It Go.
I'm sitting outside a coffee shop here in Calgary and I see this monster black #cloud looming above.
Dark clouds are messengers... they tell us the weather is about to change for the wetter.
Then, I notice the edge.
A distinct blue patch of #sky is peeking around the edge of an otherwise ominous object.
And though much of the #sunshine and blue are hidden, seeing past the edge I am reminded that beauty hasn't gone anywhere... it's merely covered.
And this is #life .
Trouble, difficulty, and #adversity find each of us at some point.
And when that happens we have a tendency to forget all the #beauty and wonder that life is.
It becomes #hard to see how far we've come, how many obstacles we've faced and conquered, or appreciate the #gifts we gain from experiences that challenge us.
But this lack of #vision is self imposed.
It is a loss of perspective. Usually one that causes us to feel small and shrink away from the hard thing we know we need to face.
We make the problem larger than it is to justify our lack of #progress .
Our fear and doubt cause us to question and maybe even stop short of going after more, bigger, and better.
But this is a trick of the #ego .
It doesn't want to experience pain, ridicule, or look bad to others when we fall or fail... so we have to remember to #moveanyway when everything screams stop, give up or quit.
Growth, in we hairless monkeys, comes largely from our #challenges .
When you find yourself in one, don't panic... like the clouds above it will eventually pass and your blue sky will return.
Everything is temporary.
Are you facing difficulty right now... how do you deal with it? Share below.
Sight + Light.
Remember: there is #norestfortheworthy
Be. Do. Have... In that order.
