Essences of Nature Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

When we think of obstacles, we tend to think of insurmountable hurdles to our progress. Sometimes an obstacle will make us reconsider whether we are on the correct path or wonder whether someone is trying to tell us something about that particular path. We may flex our determination muscles while we try to figure out the right direction.

Is it easier to give up rather than continue as we struggle for the most correct answer? If we continue, are we constantly pushing our limits as we trudge up that perceived hill? If we give up and give in, are we following our instincts or are we not up to the challenge? Oftentimes, it’s difficult to make a decision until we have all the information or enough time has passed. How do we meet our obstacles as opportunities?
