“There might not always be a way out, but there’s always a way through.”
there’s just no way to avoid a challenge.
we must rely as much on our resilience as we do our intelligence.
the lesson is so great, so important and so necessary, that life not only won’t, but can’t afford to let us gloss over it, or pass it by.
And yet, just because we can’t seem to find a way out, doesn’t mean that we can’t find a way through.
In fact, such moments call for nothing short of that.
we are able to hatch creative solutions to avoid our challenges…and yet,…
our most creative solution is to meet our challenges head-on, and do so with surrender, gratitude and grace, absorbing all of the wisdom and experience that we can from them.
On the occasions when we can’t seem to find a way out, even despite our best efforts, it’s because we are being shown that the way is not in fact out, but through.
It’s easy, and even understandable that we may be wary of, or even despise our challenges.
After all, we have been so collectively and so cumulatively conditioned to crave convenience and loathe struggle.
However, the only way to live a life of true and lasting peace, is to be able to embrace our challenge times as gratefully and as graciously as we do our easier times…knowing that they both hold something of value for us.
Often, when we happen to encounter our most significant and seemingly unavoidable challenges, it’s merely life’s way of preserving a certain equilibrium.
Remember, the more we ask of life, the more life must surely ask of us…and what is asked of us, typically presents itself in the form of a challenge.
So, rather than continually attempting escape from what life is trying to teach you, turn around and head straight for it.
Go all in on your challenges, in the same way that you would your joys because one of the most profound and powerful secrets to life is that our challenges actually hold the keys to our joy.
You might not always be able to see it, but you’d best believe it and above all remember that no matter what you may be going through, you may not be able to find a way out, but you’ll always be able to find a way through.
