Have you ever had those periods in life where it feels like no matter what you do, life just keeps handing you the same nonsense to deal with again and again?
What if all of these persistent problems are actually just lessons the universe is sending our way? Think about it: think about a problem you’ve consistently had and the ways you’ve tried to overcome it. Has one of your approaches been to stop and listen to the problem, and then try to figure out what it’s trying to teach you?
Probably not, because that’s just not our nature.
For the first two months of 2018, I had been struggling with the inspirational, heart-to-heart content that I love to mix in with my lifestyle stuff for you guys. I just couldn’t seem to dig it out of my brain. And I had been feeling like this for weeks.
Then, during the first week of March, a number of things happened that took me away from technology. My computer charger kicked the bucket, the power at my house went out, the internet wasn’t working somewhere when I had planned to sit down and knock out lots of things, I had to have my eyes dilated so I couldn’t see up close for a few hours one night…
First I was thinking, “omg, why is life completely against me working this week?!”
But then I realized, on every occasion, guess what happened? Content started pouring into my brain. And multiple times throughout all this (except for when I couldn’t see!), I found my fingers furiously trying to type the thoughts in my brain into notes on my iPhone.
Sometimes when we’re thrown similar frustrations over and over again, they’re really there to make a point. They’re there to actually *assist* us in making a change. They’re not always there to make us pull our hair out. My message for you this week is: life will keep giving you the same problem until you take what you’re supposed to take away from it. So, what do you keep getting hit with? What lesson(s) might you be missing?
