Obstacles are teachers to reawaken joy

“Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.”

Norman Vincent Peale

Find a new way to see obstacles. They can be our greatest ally.  They can be our greatest teachers.  They can be the challenge that we need to reawaken the joy in our hearts by forcing our imagination to come to life again. Many of the greatest thinkers of our time made the greatest discoveries because their obstacles engaged them to come up with solutions that catapulted their ideas further.  We too can use obstacles as tools to inspire new directions in our life. When we stand up to our obstacles, we bring a revitalized enthusiasm because we have surpassed something we initially believed was unsurpassable.  When we face our blocks and see them for what they are, we muster the strength to face whatever life throws our way.  When we experience something stopping us in our tracks, we become very grateful for the message that the challenge will teach us.  When these obstacles are overcome, we will discover a renewed will and determination.  When these obstacles are overcome, we will fully appreciate the euphoric aroma of a life well lived where our spirits run carefree, souls forever young. When these obstacles are overcome, we will recognize that they did not have half the strength we once believed.  When we face our obstacles when they arise, ask- “teacher, what is my lesson here?”    Take the time to listen as the answers come, it is the universe speaking to us, helping us to follow the path that will best serve us.

Magical Key to Bliss: Let your obstacles guide you towards reawakened joy!
