So much of our life is about what is convenient… a long time ago I woke up and realised that life is not about convenience, most of what happens to us is majorly inconvenient. We can turn our backs and hide when shit happens or we can roll up our sleeves and carry on and make the best of a bad job. So many people look for an easy out and in my experience your easy out comes at a great cost to someone else or even yourself down the line. Better to face your inconvenience and deal with it, better still turn that inconvenience into something good, make it count. There is enormous strength in overcoming a problem, surviving a horror, winning over an adversary.
We are in control of our lives. Sweeping issues under the carpet or passing the buck isn’t control it’s denial and it holds back great rewards from us. What are we here for if not to learn?
Swings and roundabouts … one of my favourite sayings, it’s all swings and roundabouts. Life is anything but convenient. Grab its every opportunity even the crappy, sticky, ugly, smelly ones and roll with them… there’s no better feeling than emerging the victor.
