How to make sense of physical challenges

So many of my clients have or are beginning to experience their own physical challenges, or are dealing with the physical challenges of relatives. Depending upon the type and severity of the challenge, getting thru the day can seem daunting. We take for granted the ability to walk, type, or do for ourselves. Many clients have asked me why? Why is this happening to me? Why is my mom dying now? What is my health failing? Why me, why now?
Sometimes it has to do with the universe wanting you to slow down so that you can take a different perspective on life. At other times, it is simply that there is a time for every purpose under heaven.

If you find yourself faced with a challenge, ask yourself what you can do to make your life easier and more enjoyable. What is the up-side if there can be one found. Is there a lifestyle change that you can make that will make it better? Pain is a motivator for sure, be it emotional or physical.
Go inwards and meditate on the question of why? You will be surprised when a voice from deep within answers you.  Until then, know that I care deeply about you. Karen
