So…there’s not too much happening that is going your way right now? Well, sometimes that’s just how it goes. Everyone has those moments when it seems as life is going awful for them but perfect for everyone else. Often it can be a real struggle to be convinced otherwise, and as a result you may unknowingly put yourself at a standstill—reflecting on the present (or past) so much that progression towards the futures comes to a screeching halt.
No matter what is going on in your life, you must keep going.
It is important to keep in mind that sometimes negative things happen to force you to make positive changes—changes you would not have even thought about making otherwise. And in a lot of cases in order to fulfill your purpose in this life, you must experience seasons of turbulence. It is those seasons that mold you into everything you are to be.
Remember: diamonds did not start off as diamonds—initially they were mere pieces of coal.
When trouble comes your way, the best thing to do is to simply smile and keep going; keeping a hopeful mindset that life will get better for you. Whether we see it at the moment or not, there is always a positive in EVERY situation you experience—even the bad ones.
I think that 2012 Olympic Gold medal Gymnast Gabby Douglas said it best last week: “Hard days are the best, that’s when champions are made.”
Life is about moving on, accepting changes and looking forward to what makes you stronger and more complete!
If you know for a fact that the things you are striving for in your life are possible, then keep going in spite of what’s going on; in spite of whatever is happening around you. The days of your greatest troubles will lead to the days of your greatest triumph. If you just keep working at it and maintain a spirit of hope, things will turn around for you in time.
AND…………all things will eventually work out for your good!
