This is a perfect reminder that the more carastrophic your life is, the greater it’s going to be. Like many, I beat myself up over my struggles, I blame myself when I’m not sucessful, and become anxious when I make mistakes. I will definitely remember this part of my life as a struggle (I have TWO jobs and my blog I won’t call it job because it’s a commitment that I love but I still walk away going 70+ hours a week), and still, I appreciate every minute. I’m constantly exhausted, I don’t work out enough or eat as healthy as I would like, I feel like I try and try and try but still can’t get ahead. Even after all that, I keep waking up and I keep moving forward. At some point, I will collapse and I look forward to it. Hitting rock bottom is a rebirth. You get to club up to the top again.
Collapsing and hitting “rock bottom” shouldn’t be thought of as negitive either. In a less traditional definition I see it as a change, a decision you make that alters your life in the best way possible. Sometimes you have to get to that pressure point to make the change. So it’s the end of the road for one time in your life and a renewal to start another.
This week I challenge you to embrace all that you find bad in your life. Anything that makes you think why me, or does this only happen to me? Love those moments, because without them, you can never truly be born.
