Sometimes it is hard for a person to remain positive in life when there are so many obstacles faced each day. Just remember these are not test and not barriers to overcome but a problem which must be solved. This approach helps reduce the anxiety sometimes encountered in our day to day lives.
My major obstacle involves my back and pain associated with a TBI. These have affected my studies and worn my being down to a crawl. Since this is who I am now, I cannot afford to let these remains of military service to affect my soul. They are nothing more than something to overcome. Basically a simple problem to be solved and I will test these skills in problem solving and self reliance by attending this year’s Burning Man.
During my preparation, I have often become discouraged as my back has failed. But I have developed the means to focus this energy and develop simplified processes to construct onsite my shelter, to self-propel myself through the desert and be able to sustain myself in this environment without assistance for 7-days. Life is a problem to solve and those who succeed live happy and full lives.
Each of our problems differ but the answer is the same, what is an alternative to this action? I look forward to my cross-country trip and Burning Man in hopes of finding who I have become on this journey.
I am self-consumed at this time and the I have no fork in the road. I have unlimited potential in this my new life.
