Today I have been thinking about how resistance is course correction.
When I ran into resistance, I used to think I had done something wrong.
That I had missed the turn.
That if I had been paying better attention I would have gotten it “right.”
Resistance felt like failure.
However, thinking of resistance as course correction means that I didn’t yet miss something.
Instead, the push back of resistance is trying to tell me something.
Trying to get my attention.
To offer a new perspective.
To let me know that I didn’t screw up.
There is no reason to blame or judge myself.
Resistance is course correction.
In taking a new path, I can lighten my load.
I don’t need to hit my brakes.
In the new path forward, I can find ways to use the new perspective to help me see my path forward.
This is the affirmation:
I am learning that resistance helps me adjust the path of my journey.
