Challenge & growth

From challenge blooms growth.  Just as a seed may struggle to sprout and take root in the crack of a sidewalk, we may struggle with challenges that seem to block us from blossoming.  But every challenge that we meet helps us to grow.  Regardless of whether we conquer the challenge or not, by facing it, we disarm it.  In this way we reduce its power, releasing the energy that may be blocking us, and we are able to address the challenge in a space of empowerment, rather than in powerlessness.  For this week, what would it be like to look at all our experiences and challenges as opportunities for growth?
