Never let anyone tell you, you can’t do something Others may try to knock you down, To throw you out Or wear you down But its up to you No matter what To be the one Who keeps going To be the one; who keeps believing ♡
~ M. L Adams
Just a little inspiration for your goals this year. Life is a way of being, ensure you’re being what you want to be, and doing what you want to be doing 💗 Happy New Year 2021 💗
The greatest block can be a fear of what people do, say or think, The greatest advice would be to just discard it, Why; People can say anything but in reality It means nothing Why; Opinions change as much and often as the wind; Yet the truth in your heart The truth of who you are That is what always outlasts No matter how you are portrayed Or what people say It is the light that is within; That always guides your way ❤
Life can be challenging at times and seem to be filled with setbacks especially in such recent times as some of us may have experienced.
What are some of the ways you can deal with such times effectively in order to overcome them?
The following is some of the ways I have found to be useful to apply in such times;
Take each day step by step-do what you can.
Set mini goals- nothing too big.
Check off those important things you’ve done and recognise your efforts.
Create a gratitude list- every morning and/or evening- list all the things you are grateful for.
Practice being present- be aware of your surroundings- focus in on the sights and sounds.
Find ways to channel your energy- exercise regularly and do what you enjoy.
Connect with others and support and encourage them too.
Spend time in nature.
Have faith- all things change and we always overcome.
All of the above are ways that you can manage in the here and now, as some difficulties can make it hard to look ahead. It is with the daily steps however that things always improve and you can overcome any setback.
Stay strong and focused ♡
‘You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.’ – Martin Luther King
As much as we dont want it or like it, life can be full of unfairness. Some people work hard all their life and dont have what they need. Others may do little or nothing and seem to have everything.
Our liberty can be taken from us, we can be faced with endless difficulties and our health can be threatened.
All of these are simply a part of life; life can be hard and a struggle and these are facts we have to face sometimes, yet there are many ways in which we can approach these times in life that simply just are, to make it far easier.
The following are ways I’ve found most helpful;
Accept things as they are; the more we struggle against things and people as they are, the harder it is for us.
Find the positive; there is always positive amongst difficulty. We just have to look for it. For example right now admist the coronavirus pandemic there is a beautiful peace outside and the birds are singing beautiful symphonies together. The air is cleaner and the earth is healing.
Change the meaning; ultimately it is not what happens to us, but the meaning we give it that counts and that is something completely within our control, no matter what the circumstances. Find the most empowering purpose and meaning and apply it to the situation and everything changes.You are the one who sets your sail. No one else.
A few years ago I wrote this small poem and it seems so apt right now for those of us who may be struggling;
Every difficulty can be an opportunity
Every struggle can be a strength
It is what you choose to focus on
That will really get you through anything,
To be place where you thought you would never be,
To be place where you’re more than you’ve ever been ♡
Use this time to grow stronger, to become more, learn more and find your way to soar.
