Are You Tired of Experiencing the Same Challenges Over and Over Again?

3 Comments

Recently, I caught myself acting in a way that I am not extremely proud of. I got triggered by something that has triggered me many times before and I reacted in a way that I’ve reacted many times before.

Have you ever experienced that?

Well, here’s what happened next. After this undesirable behavior occurred and when I later told my friend about what happened, I noticed that instead of beating myself up about it (as I have been known to do in the past), I was quite compassionate with myself and recognized it as something that happened and moved on.

This was huge for me!

It was one of the first times I recognized that it’s okay that I get triggered or behave in ways that are less than ideal. I’m going to have bad days.

What I’m learning is that it’s not about living a life without any challenges or stumbling blocks; it’s all about how we now respond to these challenges as they arise.

If you’re anything like me and sometimes get frustrated with thinking you’ve “figured it out” and wonder why the same issue keeps tripping you up, then check out this video.

In this video, I’m going to explore why we experience the same challenges over and over again and how we can go from feeling frustrated to feeling free.

The sign of growth isn’t being free of obstacles—it’s responding to them with more love, compassion, and resilience. {Tweet that!}

Now, I’d love to hear from you.

Do you ever find yourself frustrated when you encounter the same challenge because you thought you already had it “figured out”? Instead of focusing on the challenge, share with us how you now respond differently than you did before.

I’d love to see what you discover, so please take a moment and share in the comments’ section below this post. What you share might be exactly what someone else needs to hear today.

Challenges are not going to disappear. Once we accept this, we can begin to notice how growth and evolution are indeed occurring. So please pass this along to anyone in your life who you think might benefit from being reminded of how we can experience more freedom and less frustration in order to truly love the life we have!

If you desire more support in experiencing less frustration and seeing where you are already expanding in your life, I invite you to sign up for one of my complimentary discovery sessions.

P.S. I’m getting giddy with excitement to make a big announcement which I don’t want you to miss so be sure to sign up if you haven’t already!

With gratitude…
