There’s Beauty in the Struggle

It’s crazy to think that we are already 5 days into 2018! How many New Year, New Me posts did you see 👀. As always I am one for positive changes in life. Take this time to start thinking about how you want 2018 to play out,  and especially how do you want it to end. What are your goals and aspirations? All of this can be overwhelming but well worth thinking about and planning out. It’s never too early or too late to make changes where you see fit, to eliminate struggle and strife.

For a while now, I have been hearing an overload of, “Trust the process”, or “There’s beauty in the struggle,” and other sayings that are meant to be encouraging during tough times. Most realize sooner than later that, life is no fairy tale. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people all the time. You may work your butt off for things that you watch someone else effortlessly obtain. You may often even hear an overload of “You have to wait until it’s your time.” All of these sayings are meant to porvide support but, in all honesty, they irritate me.

There has to be a line between a struggle that is adding to your character versus an extended unnecessary struggle. Struggle should make you so uncomfortable that it propels you toward your goals and dreams. It should literally put  fire under you to make you work so hard to eliminate ever having to struggle. Next time you get comfortable thinking that your struggle will bring beauty, think of ways to obtain the beauty as quick as possible to end the struggle. Don’t wait for things to happen, make them happen. As you head into this year, stay positive and strive ti eliminate struggle in as many areas of your life as you can.

Struggling is not fun, and there is much more to life than struggle. Remember, you don’t have to accept struggle! Let’s make this year one for the books. I wish you much success, prosperity, and the greatest vibes possible. 

Happy New Year & Cheers to 2018!
