The toughest moments are the ones that GROW YOU…
You know what I am talking about. The growth moments… the ones that we appreciate more than anything once it’s all over and we can look back with a good laugh and an “Aha!” — but while you are still in it, you feel like clawing your own eyes out.
My worst “mommy” moments are the teachable ones for me and my little guys. We are so totally in this together, and we make a great team…but we certainly have our fair share of dark times.
Look for the lesson
Without the dark times, we wouldn’t strive for the good ones.
Whenever you find yourself getting twitchy and tormented, open up your consciousness to received guidance from the situation. What can be learned from this?
You wouldn’t be that amazing beacon of light to a friend in need unless you yourself had once been in a dark space.
You can’t be a teacher unless you were once a student.
You can’t succeed unless you have truly known what it was like to fail.
The Players in your world are your Professors.
There are most likely people in your life who push your buttons, get your cackles up, and cause you to see red. Perhaps its a family member or a friend from your past that has a knack for waking up your insecurities and triggering your defensiveness. It may be just an encounter with a stranger whose behavior is rubbing you the wrong way.
No matter how much these people might get under your skin, its likely that they are appearing to you as a teacher.
The feelings that others are igniting in your MUST come to the surface— and they are being presented to you at the most perfect time. Rather than swat them away— PAY ATTENTION.
What needs to be healed?
Sit in stillness, listen for the answer and honor your intuition.
