The Worthy Struggle

Tuesday December 22, 2015 #782

“We must embrace struggle. Every living thing conforms to it. Everything in nature grows and struggles in its own way, establishing its own identity, insisting on it at all cost, against all resistance.”

~Rainer Maria Rilke


The end of the year brings us the chance to reflect on both our triumphs and struggles (small and large).  Of course we’ve had many of both throughout the year if we are making an effort at all.  No matter what the pain involved, most if not all of our triumphs have been the result of focused effort to overcome challenges and obstacles in pursuit of worthy goals.  So try not to be concerned or angered by the struggles you have inevitably faced and will face in the future.  Realize that challenges are natural and right and stay focused on your worthy goals to have the courage and perseverance to push on through any setback.  The victories will be all the more sweet for the effort to achieve them.
