Struggle Is A System Not A Way Of Life

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

We all get tangled in struggle sometimes.

It can feel overwhelming.

The amount of pressure and upset can feel as though life may never be different.

Struggle may be something you grapple with for days, months or years.

You don't have too.

Struggle is a system. The more you struggle, the more struggle shows up.

If you want to change struggle, stop. Take a deep breath. Look around you. What is working for you? What can you have gratitude for right this very moment? What can you see? Touch? Taste? Hear? What do you desire?

You have to stop the obsession and worry over the struggle. You have to stop telling the story. You have to move forward in what you want, not what you hate.

I know, you may be thinking, “it’s not that easy.” I get it. I understand. And I’m here to tell you that the universe is an abundant place filled with possibilities. Find something new to focus on. Ask for something greater to show up. Relax into the ease of something greater.

The Universe is listening, are you telling it about your struggles or about your ease?
