The Value Of Challenges

  Challenge appears in our lives when we are often already feeling as though we have beaten down by life. Challenges have the potential to break us or build us up. This past week, I felt just that...broken.  I took a couple days off from my blog to re-group my thoughts, but to also cope with some of the challenges I have been facing.  There has been a couple challenges in my life lately and one of the largest has been my efforts to find a new job because of how unhappy my current job is making me.  There is no denying I'm not the only person facing similar struggles when it comes to my situation with my job.  In fact, I know I should be very lucky to even have my part time job compared to a lot of people's situations.  However, its hard to always feel that way.  This week I've had two job interviews for the same job, filed out 20 some odd pages of paper work for a potential job opportunity and managed to still survive in the psych. unit at work.  The challenge to over come my frustrations with the application process as well as my job has become very trying, but that's what challenges are for anyone...trying experiences. I've cried countless hours over all of these challenges, but the tears ultimatly were my acceptance of these challenges and struggles knowing that were life experiences.   After a little time for reflection I've had a chance to really see how my current challenges are ultimately building me up to become the women I want to be.

 Sometimes its hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to putting challenges into perspective and I have to be honest that I am not sure where the light will come for me in regards to my job situation or even my journey to find love again, but I have faith that it will come.  The wonderful thing about challenges is that they help us push ourselves just a little bit further and harder than we thought we could push ourselves. So don't let a challenge become a mountain that breaks you and instead use the challenge as a chance to build yourself up!
