Life is hard for us all sometimes. I've written this for you for those times life just feels like it’s “too much”, so file it away somewhere on your computer so you’ll have it to refer to when life feels harsh. And if that describes your life at the moment, If I’m sorry for the pain you might be feeling, I wish life were lovelier right now.
But I know you can get through this, and there is so much goodness on the other side of it. Even when we are feeling afraid, broken, disappointed, we can decide to slow down, breathe and find some goodness.
We get to choose how we want to feel
Despite all the things, all the bad stuff, we get to make the choice over and over again to find, to re-discover the good in our lives.
We don’t need to let circumstances determine our thoughts and feelings.
We don’t need to wait till life is our rendition of perfect to feel good.
Should we wait for life to become perfect and predictable to feel good?
When we don’t allow others to push our buttons, or circumstances to control our emotions and behavior, we take our power back.
Our emotions don’t own us, we can make a different choice!
When we choose to change our perceptions, our thoughts change, our feelings change, everything changes.
Sometimes it’s really hard to find the good, I know, but it’s there. It may be very basic things, very mundane, but it’s more than we may realize and … it’s good.
I can remember being homeless with my children, because I had to run from their abusive father years ago to keep us safe, we left everything behind, and I remember promising the Universe that in the future if we could be safe, I would be grateful to just have “normal” problems. Many years later I sometimes need to remind myself of that promise.
When we experience challenges we learn to become more resilient and it's an opportunity to connect with our intuition for guidance.
We always have the choice of who we want to be.
I would never minimize your situation, but I've learned through difficulty that how I choose to think changes everything.
For instance; Not thinking of myself as a victim and realizing my resilience
I’ve lived for a long time with anxiety, but when I feel myself moving into it, I choose to be aware and become present to the feeling. I remind myself that I have the power to move into a higher space , that there are answers, that there is love....... always.
