Navigating Around Challenges

We are bound to face challenges, although the degree might vary. Sometimes we might face bigger challenges or a large number of them. Other times, the challenges might be smaller or less in number. One way or another, it’s hard to imagine life without challenges.

So, if we’re bound to come across challenges as we navigate through life, how can we respond to them? One thing that has consistently worked for me, is to be patient with my response. Doing this helps create space. This space is helpful to approach the challenge from a more equanimous and certain place. Another surprising discovery I have made is that at times it has even helped to shape my work around my challenges. As a writer and musician, I have the gift of being able to do this.

We cannot always avoid challenges in life. That said, if we are patient in our understanding and response to them, we can navigate around them.
