Out of destruction and chaos comes rebirth and growth. Times of trials and hardship brings lessons and messages for the soul, mind and heart. We may not see the lessons while in the midst of turmoil. But they are there all the same. How you work through the challenges in your life is more important than what those struggles are. Do you meet them with strength, compassion and perseverance? Or do you face them with anger, indignation and blame? You are the one who chooses the path ahead.
You can complain, feel victimized, beaten down and depressed. You can lash out at everyone around you because your stress and anxiety is at its limit. You can become angry and blame everyone else for the predicament you are in. But the bottom line is….you made the choices that brought you to this point in your life. Others may have created the circumstances that provided you with choices. But you made those choices, not them.
Everyone has moments when they reach their limit and feel overwhelmed. Without sorrow we cannot know happiness. But how we move through those depleting emotions determines how we move forward through them. If you can sit down and align your thoughts and energies with the Divine in your life; you can find renewed strength to endure and persevere. Have compassion for yourself and your feelings, but don’t allow those emotions to hold you in the tower of destruction.
Being angry, lashing out at others and expressing hate for others as a means to blame someone for your dilemma’s will only bring more negative situations to your path. Like a magnet you’ll attract the same energies and emotions into your day, that will seep into all areas of your life. From family, work (or no work), finances and friends, little by little you will lose the things you value the most dear.
It’s ok to sit down and cry for a moment. Lay down in a dark room and try to find comfort in your surroundings. Or take a long walk, go out and exercise or do something that brings you peaceful solitude. Do whatever it takes to get those emotions of sorrow or anger out of your system and release them in a manner that will not harm others or yourself. Then, take a moment to conduct a quick 5 Minute Alignment Meditation to connect your energies to the Divine in your life and re-energize your focus to create the path you desire.
