As human beings, we go through life hoping to avoid any and all hardships. I mean, that would be ideal, right?
Of course, there’s no such thing as a life without struggles of some sort, but it’s what we do in those times of struggle that really matters. Do we pause and then act accordingly, or do we react on impulse?
I’m sure there has been at least one instance in your life that you have thought, “I’m NEVER going to get past this. Why Me?” Those times have occurred multiple times in my life, and I expect many more of them before my days on this Earth come to an end. I know one thing for sure, though. No matter how difficult or impossible the situation may have seemed in the moment, I always overcame it and felt so much better in the end result. Not just better, but stronger.
I’ve discovered that more often than not, something positive will come out of the situations that I once thought I wouldn’t be able to survive.
I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without the hardships that I’ve overcome.
When we look within ourselves in times of trouble, we will find that we have held the key to our own peace and happiness all along. It’s just difficult to realize that while in the heat of the moment and we allow ourselves to be consumed with the negativity that surrounds us. We must stand firm in our truth and remind ourselves that the Universe is not plotting against us; it’s just our turn to face trials in this cycle of life. Every person goes through it and we are not unique in that sense. It’s time to be strong and face our issues in order to come out on the other side.
In the event we are dealt with a difficult situation, it is important to remind ourselves, as often as it takes, that we will get through this hardship. Then we must do our best to focus on the positives in our life. There is always something to be grateful for if we just take the moment to shift our thinking.
I encourage you to take this shift and find your way back to peace.
You are more capable than you can imagine. Once you allow yourself to finally believe that you are stronger than you give yourself credit for, you will notice your life and your outlook on situations begin to change. Due to the fact that you are strong, brave, and tough, you were able to overcome some extremely difficult hardships. And because you did, you are a better person today!
Now is your time to shine, beautiful. You’ve held the key all along. Unlock your greater good and walk with your head held high!
Turn your hardships into something positive, and I assure you, it is then that you will truly soar.
