We all go through challenges in our journey of life. We have to go through them, overcoming them makes us stronger and more capable – in all aspects of life, health, career, relationships and beliefs.
We sometimes, believe as if we have to qualify for happiness, meaning we wait for things to improve before we can be happy. The journey will be difficult if you’re seeking for more, it’s part and parcel of life.
If you’re currently dealing with a challenging time, below are some tips that have helped me:
1. Re-assess your goals – what do you exactly want for yourself? Dream big and set out to achieve whatever it is you desire. Have short term, realistic goals. Create a to do list in the morning and do all that you can in 24 hrs.
2. Be grateful! I have a rock that I keep with me every day. Whenever I hold it, I remind myself for the things I am grateful for. We have so many things in our lives to appreciate and give love for. First thing in the morning, be grateful to be alive for another day. Each day is a gift.
3. Give yourself a break – do the things that you love and use the time that you have well. Do whatever you need to bring clarity to your mind.
4. Make today better than yesterday. The past is gone, be present and strive to be a better version of yourself each day. We all stumble, but believe that everything will work out as long as you continue to learn & act. You already have all that you need.
