Stand and fight: Or run for the hills?


Sometimes I want to throw up my hands and say, “I’m outta here! It’s more than I can bear!” Other times, I face them head on.

All of us have had one of those days where we wish we could just move to another country, ALONE! No one to aggravate us, no one to have to care for, no one who needs us around to do this or that…..totally alone. Maybe a desert island, perhaps?  Although it sounds great, it is not always the best or most viable option.

So we have to change perspective.  The good news is we have choices. 

  1. We can face the challenges that come my way and see them as opportunities for growth (though they often do not feel that way while  confronted with them).

  2. Or, run for the hills.

Most of us, whether we like it or not, because of who we are and because we love the people around us (often in spite of their actions and reactions), will choose to accept that there will be challenges both big and small that show up in life and we will do our best to face them and find solutions for them.

Today, choose to fight the good fight and see the challenges of this day as blessings that will make you stronger and better prepared for the larger challenges you encounter down the road of life.
