A Gift or A Challenge

“Everything Comes to You at the Right Time” ~ Unknown

By Sara Jane

When you look back at your life what do you see, a Gift or a Challenge?

Some of our greatest challenges when looked at with hindsight can be seen to be a Gift or a Blessing in disguise.

Not sure what I mean by this?

I can only share from my own personal experience and yes, by using hindsight.

I was scalded as a baby, spent 3 months in hospital and my 9 week old baby Sister died, all by the time I was 18 months old.

How these left me feeling over the next 35+ years and the resulting healing journey that I have been on, have certainly been a “challenge” but I can look back now and see the amazing Gift that it all was.

Why a Gift?

Because what I have learnt and experienced during my healing journey, now supports me to support others through theirs.

If I hadn’t experienced all the things I have during my formative years, 2o’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and on into my 60’s, I would have no understanding of the feelings of being unworthy, unloved, unwanted, not good enough etc.

Because I understand these feelings, having felt them very strongly and all the insecurities they bring with them, I can totally relate to others that have similar feelings.


Look back over your own life, especially the more challenging times, the times when you felt things weren’t going your way.

Now look at where you are, what you have achieved.

Did you let the disappointments drag you down or did you pick yourself up and find something even better that has served you well?

There is another saying “Everything in Divine & Perfect Order Right Now” or as Louise Hay put it:

There is another quote by Neale Donald Walsch that I love “Perhaps when everything is falling apart it is actually falling together”

When we can learn to view everything as a gift, even our challenges, it is amazing how our outlook on life can change and how blessed and grateful we can feel in every moment of our lives.

Namaste Sweet Soul
