“Each time we encounter a painful experience, we get to know ourselves a little better. Pain can stop us dead in our tracks. Or it can cause us to make decisions we would like to put off, deal with issues we would rather not face, and make changes that make us feel uncomfortable. Pain prompts us to face who we are and where we are.” ~ John C. Maxwell
Melissa’s Words of Wisdom
This isn’t the “happiest” topic, however, believe it or not, pain comes with its great gifts too! Pain is an eye opener! It can be like looking in a mirror and seeing yourself more clearly… who you are being, where you are at, and what needs your attention. If you acknowledge the pain you’re having as clue or a message of some kind, you will receive something totally different from the experience than if you just muscled your way through it and suppress the pain without ever addressing the real issue at hand. I encourage you today to face your pain. There’s a great opportunity to learn something new that will change your life forever! Remember, nothing happens until you decide to take action!
