YoTrip-Words and Thoughts

A place and space for me to express my thoughts

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for January 27, 2011-Are you Challenging Life or is Life Challenging you? (Vol.1, Iss.4)


“Are you Challenging Life or is Life Challenging you?
“The world is falling down around you. This is the place where so many currently reside aimlessly desiring an EVICTION NOTICE. I challenge you to push up and out.” 9/24/08 ~~YoTrip“Narrow is the road of things deemed too hard or difficult, few take the challenge to travel that path. Decide that you will be a trailblazer.” 12/23/08 ~~YoTrip“Soaring Towards Heaven In 2011″
The Sky Is Limitless…

“Words the joyful noise of my
mouth, sweet sounds to my ears.The
results of a love affair between
pen and paper, words”

Life has a way of being challenging for all who are living it. The challenges presented can be large or small, good or bad, uplifting or down-trodding, pushing or pulling when it lands on your doorstep. Challenges do not always send a calling card, show up nice and tidy, or are what you are expecting. When challenges come you make a decision about how to handle them or the challenges make a decision about how to handle you. Are you challenging life or is life challenging you?

 

When life’s challenges come front center to you, it forces you to decide which path to take. You can choose to let the challenge consume you and take control of your life. Or you can choose evaluate the situation and determine it a temporary station on your journey and you will get past it, go over it, move through it to get to your destination. Life’s challenges will come to you but they cannot be your center.

You can choose to challenge life in such a way that you handle it and the elements it brings. When you know what you want, where you are going and how you plan on getting there, you challenge life. Your outlook on life has to be that you cannot always control the challenges but you are not fearful of facing them. By challenging life you stay ready and open to moving forward.

So when faced with a challenge in life take the time and determine: Are you challenging life or is life challenging you?

A period tells you that is that. With a semicolon you get a pleasant little feeling of expectancy ; there is more to come; read on; it will get clearer.
