For the most part, I remain obedient during adversity but right now that is not working out so great. What do I mean by obedient? Committed to and willing to follow through all actions required of me.
When I encounter struggles (financial, family obstacles, emotional stress), I remain focused on the major goal I am undertaking at the time. In this case, school. I strongly believe that what I am learning in school is part of my destiny. Although school is extremely challenging I prepared for this before returning to school. My level of preparation included affirmations, working out, reading spiritual literature daily, and “me time”. Caught in a Catch 22, I have not been diligent in these activities.
Yes, school is difficult and it may be easy to let meaningful habits fall through the crack, but for me the aforementioned are just as important as school, if not more. Being physically, mentally, and spiritually healthy and balanced is the only way to ensure that all of this learning does not go to waste!
I use the word obedient because I knew what habits and actions would be required of me prior to returning to school. Obedience and discipline is important if I will reach and MAINTAIN the path that has been outlined for me. Slowly but surely I am taking actions to reintegrate best practices into my daily life.
Beginning this week, I will resume my morning affirmations and my daily reading of spiritual literature.
Have you been obedient under adversity? What are you going to recommit to doing on a regular basis?
