The Challenges Presenting Themselves To You Now Are The Exact Ones You Need To Deal With

Paulo Coelho once said, “Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.” Remember to always explore whatever lesson is presenting itself to you right now. You might find yourself being asked to solve a problem that might seem painful in this moment, but once processed, will be released. Often we wait too long to deal with issues, therefore causing ourselves more long term pain and suffering. Anytime you find unhappiness in the present moment surrounding a specific situation, think about what would happen if you:

1. Removed yourself from the situation completely

2. Changed your behavior in some way

3. Totally accepted the situation

Then decide to take action and stop brewing over it. By taking action, it will ultimately give you greater clarity and strength to handle harder situations in the future with intention, grace, and speed.
