Challenges Are Worth The Pain

This has been a bit of a frustrating week for me... my walking and eating have been great and I feel on track with that... but other things have been frustrating. My main issue is my long travel times getting back and forth to work, which have been at least 90 minutes or more each way. I am at the mercy of our transit system that apparently has no clue how to schedule the buses. I have heard they are doing a total revamp but not until sometime in May or even later...  so I will just have to continue on the way I am until then.

I am weighing all my options as I cannot count on our transit system to get it together and actually work the way it should. I am beginning to think there is a reason why I am having to deal with all of this... I remember something Oprah either said or was quoting someone about how we are sent whispers, then taps, then bricks and finally the whole wall falls on us if we don't listen. I personally don't want the whole wall falling on me to make the changes I need to make.

I think we and when I say we... I am talking more about myself... when I have a huge change in front of me, the first thing I do is say no, I don't need anymore change right now... I'm good the way I am... but that is not growth. Typically I turn it around quickly and go with the change since it usually ends up being better for me even if it isn't always easy getting there. Actually it is never easy getting there but it always ends up that it is exactly where I am supposed to be...
I get into a comfort zone and think I can stay there and life will move along the way it is supposed to... yet I know logically that staying in my comfort zone won't help me get to the next level. I also have thoughts that I shouldn't have to go through anymore challenges, haven't I had enough? Silly, I know... that is not the way life is... everyone has challenges, no one is exempt, even if I look at their lives and think they have it all together it just means they are good at hiding their challenges.

This became openly apparent to me when I realized that the person that had done everything she could do to discredit me and hurt me was still trying to do this... it made me think about how her life 'seems' to be what she says she wants it to be... she proclaims how happy she is... yet if she was, why does she feel the need to keep trying to hurt me? That is a contradiction to what she is putting out there... that was a bit of an ah ha moment for me. It just looks like her life is wonderful without any crazy challenges like mine but she has ones that are inside.
I will keep my own challenges and deal with them one by one... at least I don't have the desire to lie and hurt other people and then pretend everything is okay... I actually will wish her happiness and peace, maybe if she can feel that she will stop attempting to hurt me... although she won't be successful as I have moved on from her... hopefully she can move on from me.

So, with my ah ha moments, I know that is the tap... I already had the whispers and ignored them... I don't want the brick or the wall falling on me... that means making some huge changes... scary ones where I will basically jump and build my wings on the way down... those are never easy but I guess if they were, they wouldn't be worth it ... Right?

  4. Hello Launna and happy Saturday. You are right when you say that resisting change is not growth. It's human nature to want to resist change, and to want to stay in our comfort zones. After all, they are called comfort zones for a reason. But I think we can become stagnant in them. Sounds like you are more than willing to step out of yours :) and that's where the magic happens.

  5. The entire transit system is a joke! With all the taxes we pay you would think they would be more organized. I am sorry that they have been an inconvenience to you. Praying you have a better week transit wise.

  8. Dear Launna,
    It takes just 20 km from where I live and Milan, but I reach the office after more than an hour, If I'm lucky... I have to take the car, the metro and the bus. So, I can understand you well.
    I hope you can read while traveling :)))
    A big hug from Italy!

  9. Hello Launna,

    Yes, one does have to face challenges to grow. To stand still, in the comfort zone, is really going backwards as the world moves on regardless. So, you are right to continue to challenge yourself and to leap into unknown and untried situations, even if they are not always successful. For, it us often in the most surprising situations that one learns and benefits the most. We cannot always predict what these will be.

  11. Hello Launna, so sorry to hear about your rough week. Challenges are painful yet challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. I'm not sure about the context of the situation about the person you are referring to but sometimes some people are put there in our lives just to test our patience. It's good that you are able to handle her well and even hope for peace and happiness for her.

    I saw that you've included your personal FB page and I've sent a request to you via my personal FB page too. Would love to stay connected with you on more platforms.

  17. Hello sweet Launna,
    I understand you, the means of transport in Italy are bad. But I hope will be resolved in good for you in May. You don't have to think about the people who bring you negative thoughts. You are a strong woman and I believe that you have to face a challenge at a time. I do so and I work well. Remember that Launna is a wonderful woman, wonderful and strong. I believe in you.

  18. You did have some ah ha moments! I think you are very right. Many people put on good masks and hide all of the problems going on in their own lives but why some of them feel the need to take their pain out on others I will never understand. You have a wonderful outlook. I have always lived by the rule that I have to look at myself in the mirror every morning and I want to like the person I see in that reflection. Most days I do!

  20. My lovely Launna It's a challenge and yes you've proved it all what you've been after I read your post from the beginning till the end! I know it's so annoys what she does and against you. I am so sorry she hasn't ever stopped bother you. Hug from me Launna. The only we can do to such an annoyed person like this just ignore and probably don't even mention on a post anymore otherwise she will keeps bother you! I know it hard to do:). I really want you to do meditate like I do because it helps me so much to ignor and moved on quickly from the worse! Just focus on your breathing ins and outs and for the beginner:) you want to do only five minutes a day. I hope they be able to fix it soon so then you don't have to take 90 minutes to get to work. That was quite a long ride Launna. Hang in there at lest you are on tracks with your eating healthy and exercise though. Good night Launna. It's late. I'm heading to bed. Thank you so much for stopped by and checked on me:). You're so lovely Launna. Oxox

  32. it seems to be a rough start into this year for a lot of us. as to everything happening for a reason [the wall collapsing onto you], yes oh yes. I do believe the universe is giving us exactly what we need at any given time. as to people's behaviours saying more about themselves than they say about the target of their actions, yes oh yes too. and as to being ready for more change right this moment... I hear you sister. can't we all have a little break, please :)

  33. Aw, I'm sorry you had such a rough week, Launna. But just know that nothing lasts. After rain comes sunshine. And then probably rain again, lol. But that's life.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sorry that your commute has been rough and taken up more time. Hopefully you can read or relax a little bit during that time, but I know it is hard to have more time taken up with getting back and forth to work. It sounds like you are figuring out ways to make changes, even if they won't be easy. I also loved your realization about the person who is trying to hurt you. They may act like their life is great, but if they are trying to hurt you, they are definitely covering up problems they have inside.

    Happy wing building! :)

  44. I read something recently about an Uber-like service that was for carpooling. It's called Uber-pool...and because you split the ride with others, it's supposedly super-cheap. I don't know if it'd be as cheap as mass transit, though.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh my, 90 minutes each way is a very long commute. I can understand your need for change. You will get to where you need to be, one step and one day at a time. I believe in you! Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I am fine. Work and other things have kept me busy lately, but all is well. :) I hope you got the snow day you wanted home from work. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  46. As positive as I try to be in every situation, I think that 90 minutes travel time is not good. If it were myself I would try to find a job closer to home with less travel time. I also travel by bus but if the commute is longer than one hour this can take away from one's productivity at work and gives one less time to relax, but this is my view. :)

  54. Doesn't challenges suck ! Ugh, but we all go through it, esp our little comfort zones and the only way out is a step out. One step... it sounds so simple but yet so so so hard !!

    I'm sorry about your commute to work and back. That's really tough !

    As for the person who is trying to hurt you.... I learned from a recent situation that it all stems down to jealously. Something must trigger them to try to make themselves feel and look better than you/others. It is sad and pathetic and pretty much makes them look like the idiot in the end.

    Chin up and as always you are such a strong and positive woman. Look beyond <3

    With love.

  56. Hello Launna!! I completely feel you when you say that you need to make necessary changes. I just made a major change in my life too. It didn't feel good in the beginning. Trust me, and even right now as I am writing this, I am wondering if this risk I took is worth it! (I quit my job :/). And right now, I do not have any back ups. But the place was making me extremely unhappy. Extremely unhappy. And to the extent that it started affecting my relationships around me. I was always so grumpy and stuff. And I had to put a stop to it. For myself. For my loved ones. And i did. I did. And i took that leap of faith. And now, i am trying to build my wings. I am sure I will make it through, and Launna, take the risk and make the decision that you want to, and trust me, the best is yet to come. It's all about the mindset!! I know we will make it!! :)

  63. Launna, I am so sorry about your week. I hope the transit issue can be fixed somehow.
    It's funny how the only thing constant in life is change, yet we hang on to our comfort zones all the time. But remember, growth only occurs with change. It's hard to tackle the next challenge, but that is the only way we grow as people and move forward.
    So sorry you have to deal with such a person! Of course I don't know the context of the situation, but it must be very frustrating for you. Try your best to not let it get to you, because people hurt others because they are tired of their own conflicts in life. It's so loving how you still wish well for her, you are truly a beautiful person, inside and out :)
    I wish you happiness and peace as well as you go through with your challenges! God bless! <3

  65. No is usually my first answer too. I just need a minute to process it without "jumping right in". I saw your Fb posts, I know that commute is awfully frustrating. I hope you find a way to make it work for you even its just to reflect on the changes you want to make. I know though that in the same situation I too would just want to get home and my thoughts would be consumed with that.

  69. Hello my dear Launna!!! Yessss, I took the leap of faith, and I resigned. It was a very hard decision. But you know what's harder? Serving the 1-month notice. I am already in my 2nd week. And what's going to be the hardest? Finding another job! But I am all set for the challenge with open arms. Launna, go for it!! Take that risk. You know what's the biggest risk? The biggest risk is not taking any risk!!! So dear Launna, you only live once, so why live unhappily. Do something that makes you happy! I did, dear. Not easy at all, and i have no idea what I am going to be doing, but like I said, I'm all prepared!

    we need to sleep and rest deeply. I'm a little down, some days ago an article I wrote on a society that has financial problems wasn't published because the company phoned the newspaper and asked for this. In change it bought an advertising section on the paper.

  77. Hello my dear Launna! Thank you so much for your kind words. You have no idea how much they mean to me, especially because I so need them at this very moment. So thanks a lot!! And you're right! 2015 is definitely going to be a major year for us. Do your side business Launna. I am sure it would make you so so much happier!! I mean, life is short. I say, when you can work hard to fulfil your dreams, then why work hard to fulfil other people's dreams (in reference to working for someone.). So go for it, Launna. It's gonna be hella risky and not easy. But a few months down the road, you'll be telling yourself, "This is the best decision I've ever made!". <3

I hope you and Valentina are a happy and bless Friday and upcoming weekend. We so busy with our family new bussiness planing and we have to move back to snowy Michigan sometimes in this summer where our bussiness partner and office there. It's super freezing up in Michigan where we used to lived and that my husband home land. When I was there I hardly sick because the weather in town was so fresh and clean the big thing I've looked and wanted to move back there. I feel so sorry for the boys that they seemed all the time sick and sick. So my husband said is up to me and I made dicision to go back to deal with icy road and snow storms. We will got something right it can't be perfect. Here's in Atlanta is no snow but bad allergy town when it's spring time which Ive never got allergies when I lived up north Michigan. We got the sun here but still cold. I hope you will get some sun too. It's terible that when you've to deal with morning routine in 90 mins get to work. You're doing the right thing about put on the warmer coat and boots and there's no need to be attractive at all. Labour your LBD. Please do send me of picture. I'd love to see that How exited Luanna. I really happy to hear how excited you are about wearing LBD to the dance night. I'm gotta go and run now I wish you a wonderful weekend Launna. Hugs and love.

  82. I've been having some difficult weeks full of challenges myself, but one way or another I've faced them all and I feel quite proud of myself!
    I hope the walls won't come tumbling down on you and that the change will come gradually!

    Fashionably,
    Patricia

  84. Oh boy, a 90 minute commute is really, really long. I sure hope they will change the schedule soon so you won't need that much travel time every day! That must be so frustrating!
    You are absolutely right. People that are happy with themselves and at peace with everything in their lives do not hurt others, they encourage them. That is a very important aha-moment. Because you look behind the wall of fake happiness they built up. It's such an amazing accomplishment that you're just wishing her well and do not let her hurt you anymore! Blogging quickly gives us the wrong impression other people's lives are perfect. They are mostly certainly not. It's just way more fun to share the fun parts of it. But always be assured we all have our struggles, just because we don't share them doesn't mean they're not there. And the more people insist on not having a single problem in their lives, the bigger those problems usually are...
    What helps is saying hello to the challenges and tellling them that you can't wait to see to what beautiful place they are going to take you - because then that's exactly what they will do :)
    Sending a big hug to you!

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
