Life is FULL of issues, right?

I like to say this »» If you’re alive and breathing — you’re dealing with some kind of “life issue” «« it’s just inevitable — AND you’re not alone!

Take a quick-look-in-the-mirror and do little self check. Reflect on your 6 areas of personal perspective: emotional. spiritual. health & wellness. financial. professional. relationships. Chances are you can identify…

…at least one issue!

I recently asked a loaded question to my social media peeps, here’s what it was:

QUESTION(s): What is YOUR biggest need? What’s the BIGGEST challenge you’re facing in your heart or in-real-life? What “mountains” are in front of you that just seem TOO big or overwhelming? Where is FAITH in all of this, what prevents you from growing in this way?

I was blown away by the responses, there are SO many life-issues! I soaked them ALL in and decided to write them all down, here’s the laundry list:

depression  anxiety more exercise self-worth feeling lonely career difficulty marriage grow in faith divorce authenticity people pleasing blended family parenting peace loss of dreams broke balance job searching prayer overcome fear surrender health loss of hope help trust relationships weight of life priorities letting go good-bye supermom confused perfectionism real friends need joy slow down waiting • feeling invisible not enough in the word manage stress  overwhelm

Can you identify with ANY of these? What did your quick-look-in-the-mirror reveal to you?

The BIGGER question is this »» how do YOU face each life issue?

Do you escape from them? Push them down? Lash out? Blame? OR Do you face them head-on, boldly with confidence?

I don’t want to get too deep or heavy here — I just wanted to encourage YOU with the words that encouraged me me a while back, when I heard a speaker sharethe opening line of the film The Departed. The opening line is Jack Nicholson’s character—he says:

“I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me.”

Same holds true with ALL of our life issues! We can choose to DO LIFE or let life do US! We have a choice!

What will YOU choose?
