Weekend Must Reads

Happy Saturday, Friends!

I experienced a few minor rejections and closed doors this week. How about you? Was your week all butterflies, rainbows, and unicorns? Or did you experience a few glitches, hiccups, and doses of reality along the way?

After years of striving for perfection and having little patience with setbacks, I’ve discovered that I grow in times of struggle, and that living is about learning and maturing through both times of contentment and times of discomfort.

When I ask questions (of which many of them don’t have immediate answers, by the way!) and seek answers about why things didn’t go the way I planned, my life has more meaning. As I dig for answers and do some introspection, I grow.

It’s also about mindset. I can spend my life wishing and whining, or I can be grateful that I’m strong enough to endure the setback or rejection and move on.

This week, I’ve enjoyed reading blogs about overcoming. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read them yourself. Know that you’re not alone in this thing we call “Life.” You’re in great company. Let’s experience problems and grow to be stronger and more resilient because of them. Okay?

Without further ado, here are a few blogs that I want to share with you…
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.
