Golden Wisdom: Suffering…Why?

You can experience everything that you’re feeling in the moment, but you don’t have to suffer.

~Stan, my dad


Challenges, setbacks, disappointments, frustrations, and the like, are part of everyone’s life, whether they’re striving to achieve their dreams or if they’re just going through the motions. So, it makes sense to accept the fact that you’re going to meet with bumps in the road as you travel to your dreams.

But you don’t have to suffer because of it.

It’s natural to feel disappointed or frustrated, or another similar emotion, when things don’t go as expected, but we don’t have to keep going over it in our minds wishing things turned out differently. And we don’t have to pull out the old woulda-shoulda-couldas.

Your homework today is to take the next step; like the shoe company slogan says, just do it. Break the steps into small enough bits that you know for sure that you can easily do the bit. Then just do it!

You can, I know you can!

I’m so proud of you!
