We sadly didn't see much of the sun here in San Diego this weekend. So, I picked up a few new books and was motivated to just dive right in and gain even more wisdom and inspiration. My first read was Staying On The Path by Wayne Dyer; a book full of insightful life tid-bits like this one:
How true is that? It's something I've learned first-hand and it's something I remind myself of each day. [Especially on the days that are tougher than others!] Every trial we've gone through, every celebration, every disappointment - they were all absolutely necessary. The truth is, we wouldn't be who we are today if it weren't for those experiences.
When you hit a tough day or a tough phase, remind yourself that there is a reason you are going through it. And remind yourself of how far you've come. Life is going to continue to challenge us and push us and pull us in so many directions. But it gets us where we're supposed to be if we listen, work hard, and keep going forward.
