In the story of Snowbirds, a little vintage recreational vehicle breaks down so many times that those interviewing the author always want to know, “With so many troubles, weren’t you discouraged?”
When responding to Mike Ward, the editor of RV Life, the answer had to be brief because he had so many other questions. “No, because then we could with no problem park in the lot, or on the street, of any auto repair shop. Undoubtedly, there might be a real need for repair, part or diagnosis. And, thus we met so many fatherly mechanics who not only fixed the problem but provided learning skills for us.”
But, the real truth underlying his and the same question from others, is this: How does one face adversity?
Because of our belief in the power of attraction, it means that we feel responsible for the quality of all our experiences, so why not enjoy what happens even when you find you’re stepping into a pot hole in your journey through life?
Unexpected or challenging experiences are placed in our paths for unforeseen reasons. If one faces life and lives in the present moment, life becomes awesome. The experience of living through something challenging is spirit-filled and infectious in their revelations if your heart is open to seeing them.
Therefore, you are not a victim or feel anxious because you are trying to escape the present by having illusions of something different.
Overcoming adversity means to integrate and accept any life experience no matter how difficult. Thus, the uncertainties of life do not hold fear. That’s why any story worth it’s salt asks this question.
