If that title doesn’t get you in the festive spirit, I don’t know what will!
One has to wonder what would possess me to write such a post today. Well, my inspiration knows no season you guys, I write simply when my creative spirit pleases to.
And today I realized something very important, and I want to share it with you all:
God wants my life to be hard.
It’s the only explanation I could come up with to fathom why obstacles always seem to find themselves in front of me.
I am not religious – per se, I consider myself more of a spiritual type. I believe that the Universe is powerful, has life and energy, and often I refer to this energy simply as God.
And this God wants me to struggle.
I’m sure many of you have felt this way before. Thought to yourself that sometimes it seems like your life is extra hard. Like everyone has a somewhat hard life, but maybe yours is extra hard?
This inner dialogue has been circulating within me today. But it just kept leading me back to the same place: God wants my life to be hard.
The answer finally came to me.
Because each obstacle challenges me. Each obstacle asks for a greater, better me. And then each me is forced to rise to the occasion.
I don’t believe in a Universe that punishes the innocent. Therefore, I have to believe that I am challenged to become better not so I can be in pain, but so I can do great things in the world.
Thank God for my obstacles. Because without them I am experienceless. Without them, I am ill equipped to change the world. Without them, I cannot do my work.
I am blessed to live a challenged life. I have gratitude for every tough day.
Without them, I wouldn’t be who I am today.
And because of my tough life, I will continue to get better.
God wants my life to be hard – thank god!
