Challenges spur growth, but they can be pretty damn hard at times. What challenges are you grateful for?

When you live with a disability, every day can feel like an insurmountable challenge. Things as basic as taking a shower can wipe you out completely. You'd think it'd be difficult to find a challenge in all that that I could be grateful for.

You'd be wrong.

As I mentioned back at the beginning of this challenge, I'm grateful for the whole gamut of challenges that my Fibromyalgia has dealt me. I've had to take a hard look at my life, declutter my whole existence, learn to look at everything differently, and stop running the rat race.

It's taken me to Rock Bottom and allowed me to learn to appreciate the love and support of my family.

I've learned that my story can inspire others to reach for more than their current existence.

I've learned to be grateful, even when situations seem really crappy, and no way out is in sight.

And I discovered myself, laying at Rock Bottom, wishing that I wouldn't wake up in the morning. 

I discovered that I'm stronger than I ever imagined I could be. That determination and learning will get me to my goals. That patience and persistence pay off in the long run.

And I discovered wealth that I never dreamed of on the climb out of Rock Bottom.

How can I not be grateful for all of that?

I know this is where I usually invite you to drop into the comments below and share your own gratitude, but today, I'm going to challenge you to do something different.

I'd like you to drop into the comments below, and take that one thing in your life that feels impossible, and try to find a way to express gratitude for it. No, you don't have to be thankful that you're sick or in thousands of dollars of debt or trying to scratch out a living as a single parent.

Look for the *cough cough* positive lessons that you've learned as a result of this particular seemingly impossible thing. 

Good luck, and many blessings!
