´ Pushing Through -
August 3, 2015

We are often encouraged to push through rough patches. But how do we know that the resistance that we feel is not telling us something important, that something is not right and could or should be done differently?

The distinction that occurred to me is whether we are constantly in need to push through something or if the resistance we feel is temporary, possibly just a few minutes or hours.

Running is a good example: you might feel a drop of energy and the desire to stop. However if you decide to continue for 15 minutes you suddenly find that you tap into some other energy source and that it is all good. This is the healthy kind of pushing through.

However if you feel pain, it doesn’t go away and you feel it every time you go for a run pushing through is not a sign of courage but a way of jeopardizing your health.
