When an unexpected, seemingly difficult, situation arises it is easy to think about the worst-case scenario.
Quickly my mind goes into fight or flight mode, and I struggle to find a solution that will distance me from the issue.
Unless I'm being chased by a bear, this is usually an overreaction, but it doesn't feel that way at the time.
What I have to do is slow down and remember that every obstacle provides an opportunity for something new.
It may be how I am thinking or feeling about the circumstances or perhaps it is to guide me in a better direction.
My challenge is to try to find the path of least resistance and remember that it will all work out just as it needs to.
