Wednesday, August 7

I heard the following question on a podcast the other day: “What negative experience, one that you would not wish to repeat, has most profoundly changed you for the better?”

I’ve been thinking about this for myself and I’m not sure I know the answer yet, but it’s definitely worth thinking about. How do the challenges in your life make you stronger?

It’s so hard to see any positive coming from bad situations while you are in the midst of them, but I guarantee when you look back after a certain amount of time you can find something good that came from it.

You don’t need to recognize it right away. There’s a certain amount of grieving and sadness that everyone is allowed during tough times. But I believe that if we can look back on those situations and figure out how they changed us for the better, the next challenge may not seem so daunting.

Just like challenging your physical self in the gym makes you stronger for the next physical challenge in life, mental and emotional challenges can strengthen you as well. Don’t let the opportunity to learn and grow slip by.

Can you think of an answer to that question?
