Learning how to overcome certain life struggles is a lot like learning how to swim. It may seem scary at first and you may feel like you have no clue how to begin. But whether you were taught by getting thrown in the deep end or you gradually stepped in the water at your own pace…once you learn, you don’t forget. Knowing how to navigate your own struggles through the world can be a powerful life lesson. However, to learn the lesson, we actually have to face our struggles, know them, feel them, own them. Then we can figure out how to work with them.
I have one of those restless minds. The kind that can keep revolving a thought (or a few) around in my head for hours, even days or weeks. Sometimes the swirling thoughts effect my body, causing tensions in my head, shoulders, stomach, chest or legs.
