“I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning to sail my ship.” ~Louisa May Alcott
The more we learn to sail the ships of our lives, the less we need to fear the storms of life because we have learned how to navigate the challenges we face. Our confidence in our capacity to handle life’s storms makes them easier to bear.

If you’re anything like me, you have probably found yourself facing a given challenge over and over and over again in slightly different guises until you finally learn whatever lesson it is that the challenge can teach you.
I’m finally learning to save myself a bit of heartache by seeking out all the lessons I can from each challenge the first time around to minimize the number of times I might need to repeat it. It not only makes life a bit easier, it keeps me learning all the time!
What lesson is life teaching you right now?
