What comes to challenge us helps to enrich us.
No matter what your path is, there is always something that will come to test us, it is the only way that we expand and grow.
It is easy to be in the moment and present when there is nothing happening, but perhaps when a challenge does occur, how we react and learn is what matters. Staying peaceful, present and conscious is not always easy. However, the more we recognise when we are not, the growth comes and we learn what triggers our mind and our pain bodies. The moment we realise we are becoming the reaction is the moment that we are returning to awareness.
Lastly, we can all afford to be patient with ourselves. Each moment is what matters, not the constant focus on a future goal.
