frustration & grace

Its easy to get caught up in what isn’t going the way you want to- be it your dog’s inability to greet anybody calmly, your two year old deciding to keep peeing in their pants, or the institution that you choose to work for being so mired in itself that nobody can tell you where you’re suppose to be. Most often, life doesn’t just happen exactly how we’d like it to right out of the box. It takes time, a mind willing to see opportunity or options, and constant tweaking of the status quo, for us to get where we want to be. Frustration happens along the way, no doubt, but take a moment to recognize it, and you can then learn to recognize that there is an option to that feeling.

Frustration happens for a reason. Its there to teach us things, to help us out. Its a hard to miss blinking neon sign that something needs to change. Whatever you’re doing isn’t working, be it physically or mentally. Rather then point fingers and get upset with the other party involved, let it become a learning experience for yourself instead. An opportunity for you to find a little grace in a what you at first blink, thought of as a difficult situation. Don’t stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn’t bother you, but rather try and see things from a different perspective so that you actually aren’t so bothered.
