Obstacle 100: Trauma

“The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.” ~Chinese Proverb

Trauma tramples hope. Going through a traumatic event can be devastating, but it is not a defeat. No doubt, an unexpected serious accident, a death or terminal diagnosis is a trial for even the most stoic. Even so, a winner accepts the present moment and eventually moves on.

Disasters may cause you to become emotially stunned for a while. You may feel paralyzed and numb for a while, but cope with hope. Remain hopeful, celebrate what is to come. Aimee Copeland learned to celebrate life.

Don’t turn trauma into drama. There’s more to learn possibly which a temporary trauma may guide you to clarify unanswered questions or point you to a renewed sense of purpose.

See the world as new. Dream again even though things are different now; you’ve passed a test or two. Spend time with loved ones, show how deep you care. Accept kindness from others, let them be there for you.

Accept the trauma for the best. Never, ever give up. You can never lose success.

Give thanks.
