We know what it feels like to be lost, overwhelmed, and in despair. But it is then when we most need to work on staying strong and hopeful. A lot of it has to do with building the right mindset. When life seems to be going downhill, the biggest and best opportunities can come. It is a matter of noticing them and not letting them pass.
Out of fear, comfort, or the simple fact that we are deep in our sorrows, we sometimes miss out. The feelings we live, will reflect on our bodies as much as they will on our life outcomes. Holding on to the grief and the self-pity, will only cause harm. If we have the blessing of life, with hard work, dedication, and the desire to advance, I believe that life can only get better.
After what I was going through, I felt the need for a change. I just didn’t know what type of change or where to start. Then somehow, I came across a job opportunity; it offered much more than what I expected. Since day one, I felt welcomed. My decision to resign my former job, seemed almost unbelievable, those that know me, know how true this is. I loved what I did, I had plans, I saw myself at my former job for time to come. This change, however, came at a perfect time, and even though it was a hard decision, I took the risk.
Now you may wonder the relevance of this to my blog. Let me tell you that to me this was proof that life is full of surprises. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of letting ourselves be surprised. What I was going through was only spec in the whole life I have ahead of myself. Life has its ups and downs, let it be more about how we confront and overcome our problems.
Don’t let one downfall to defeat you; you are more than the problem or two that cross your path. Everyone falls, but it should never be the fall that defines you. You are the strength, the hard work, the effort, the dedication and everything else that it takes to get back up. And if it comes with changes, with challenges, which it most often does—focus on putting your best face. Opportunities come when we least expect them, but certainly at the right time. Don’t be afraid to jump along, it may be the perfect time for a new beginning.
Feel free to read my past posts, there you will see that we all have bad days, even bad months, but the longevity to our problems has a lot do with our actions and desire to move past them.
If I inspired you a bit to look more to the solutions than the problems, I ask that tomorrow morning as you start your day, you smile and make a promise to keep that smile for the rest of the day. You will see and feel the difference. Even though the problem may not disappear instantaneously, you will certainly have a better attitude and a higher chance of finding the solution.
