Suffer or Grow

Anyone else growing tired of this year?

Just about the time you think you have something well-understood and your actions mastered, things again change. In 2020, there seems to have been nothing but an acceleration of major shifts and disruptions. None of us will ever have it all figured out.

Our options remain to be these: 1) stop learning to fully suffer from the negative conditions of your fate or 2) set your mind to grow from these times and again learn for the next successful steps to take.

In the face of the flood of recent challenges, we still benefit most by continuing to learn and therefore adapt. When life’s circumstances change for the worse, we again have an opportunity to grow within them. Even when we are growing tired of them.

Unfortunately, a continuous run of success and/or holding onto a blind optimism to avoid reality have never been our best teachers. It doesn’t seem like any of us can always be ahead of our fate.

Remember also to appreciate your blessings, knowing that some currently have it much better than others. Fate may be what it will be for each of us, just know that a passionate and learned response is again required to progress forward. Amor Fati = Love Fate.

“You’re always learning. The problem is, sometimes you stop and think you understand the world. This is not correct. The world is always moving. You never reach the point you can stop making an effort.” — Paulo Coelho —
