Why should we be thankful for difficulties in our lives? Because by figuring out how to clear obstacles, our minds have to work hard, and learn new strategies to best solve the situation.
The mind is like a muscle, it needs to exercise. Think about it, If we live a simple, uncomplicated, a monotone life without challenges, we are completely unprepared when a catastrophe happens.
We have to be prepared both physically and mentally. Life is full of challenges. And, all of us experience in our lives different kinds of challenges. As we learn to solve smaller challenges, we are better prepared to solve greater ones.
It is important to be aware, how do we react and handle challenges. Keeping calm and in control, is a must in order to think clearly. Take several deep breaths and go for a walk. If possible, take time to study the situation carefully before deciding. It is a good idea to take time to think things over, in order to find the best possible solutions to the problem. Thus, avoiding making a rash decision, that later, you may regret.
If need be, discuss the situation with family and perhaps with close friends. Get different points of views. It is a good idea to talk to your Pastor, Priest or Rabbi and ask for guidance. If you still, feel unsure about what to do, talk to God. Have a conversation with Him, and ask Him, to guide you on making the right decision. And, at the end, please, do not forget to thank Him for All His Blessings in your life.
Once you study all the facts available, they may lead you into various possible solutions. Pick the one that you feel, and know in your heart to be the best decision and, ACT.
May God Bless you always.
