Tao of Struggle

“Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.” – African Proverb

Anyone can do well and be the nice person when life is presenting the sweet in life, but the test of who we are at the core is revealed during the bitter times. Can I be a kind, giving, and compassionate person when all seems to be aflame and crashing? Can I give the best during the worst? There is a type of maturity that rises when we maintain balancing and stay fairly even during the down times. The path of least resistance may seem easier but often offers nothing but the smooth ride.

Keep going, persevere, you area equal to all life offers.

  1. Absolutely, I am so grateful for the rough season for they are my teachers. Every rogue wave has taught me how to stand more firmly, grounded in love and compassion for what needed to be seen. Thank you for this today. Inner strength is always a good reminder for we often don’t give ourselves enough credit for what we ate able to overcome through adversity ❀

  2. Brings to mind the phrase “easier said than done”. Some of us pray to avoid certain situations because even though we know what should be done under such circumstances, we doubt we’d be able to do what we preach. We pray for strength in the times of struggle β€οΈπŸ™πŸΏ.
