Facing Challenges

Life does seem to send us people, circumstances and health challenges.  

Of course what is a challenge is a matter of opinion and past experience.  I might find a roller coaster challenging whilst Catherine finds it exciting..  

What does Chinese Medicine tell us about challenges?  Not as much as it tells us about how we respond to challenges.  Of course the word "Challenge" is really the word "Change" with a couple of spare "l" s and an extra "e" for good measure.  This is a key to understanding that one of the organs that helps us in challenging times is the Liver.  As we discussed in a previous blog the "Liver" energy is the energy that allows us to adapt, change and grow into new circumstances.

So in Chinese terms a great way to respond to the challenges of life is to be like bamboo and move with the wind.  Bamboo is exceptionally strong (it's used as scaffolding in construction in some parts of the world) yet also very flexible and therefore not easily broken.  So, how does this help us face challenges.  In the end it comes back to us - whilst some circumstances are within our control and we can change what is "out there" some circumstances are outside our control and what we can work with is our response.
