Blog Post # 238 – A Good Stress

Not all stress is bad.

Too much stress is bad.

Bad stress is bad.

But some stress is good.

Diamonds are not created without enough pressure.

So too with us.

We often live a soft, comfortable life.

Try to avoid stress.

But good stress challenges us.

Asks us to rise above.

To persevere.

Muscles are strengthened by resistance.

Stressors pushing against us, making us stronger.

Stress also helps bring things into focus.

Makes us turn our attention to the things that matter.

To dial in and go.

For today, let us acknowledge the stressors in our lives.

The people, situations and circumstances that push us to the max.

And as hard as it may be, let us look for good stress.

To bring out our very best.
