When I was reading on the WordPress blog Left Handed Right Mind, I read about how Joseph Bismark believes that obstacles can be a good thing. This is something that is hard to swallow, but I am trying to change my beliefs to align with his. I want my life to go smoothly, but I need to be able to look at the negative things that happen and see them as being a powerful part of who I am. I want my life to be easy, but I need to see things as Joseph Bismark does, and I need to realize that obstacles can be good for me. I need to realize that obstacles make me stronger, believing Joseph Bismark and trusting him when he says the same thing.
