We have all heard the sayings about “going with the flow” and “we only get challenges we can handle”. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve rolled my eyes and thought to myself “ya right”!
I know things now that I wish I had known thirty five years ago, but I know I went through things for a reason. Now, I know that! Back in the day I struggled hard sometimes.
If you get nothing else from my blog, or novels I hope you can see the light at the end of the tunnel quicker than I did. I blog to share, give hope and with a little luck peace to those who are still struggling through life one moment at a time.
Don’t kid yourself I still struggle, the difference is I know now that each struggle brings me to a better place. From each change that is affected I learn and grow. Focus on the moment that is yet to come, know in your heart that the trials you are faced with will pass. Unfortunately there is usually another hurdle to jump around the next corner.
My best piece of advice is to enjoy each moment, find a silver lining and meet each new challenge with a smile. That’s not to say there won’t be cloudy days, teary moments and the occasional angry “why me” shouted for all to hear. But I know we choose our future, our tomorrow’s are created by the attitude we carry with us today.
Find moments that make you smile. Enjoy a child licking their ice cream, play with your pet or chase a butterfly. And remember, stay focussed on the positives and let the negatives in your life drift away.
