Everything seem stuck because of a loss,pain,feelings of emptiness, bitterness, frustration,anger,tough time are human stressor.
I had my share the day our house was broken down over dispute on the land.What was once a home within couple of hours turn to debris, time stand still that very moment,i cried bitterly. Fast forward to four years,I went back to the same spot and I burst into laughter. "Tough time never last but tough people do" says Robert Schuller.
We do not live in a perfect world, unexpected interruptions are part of this plane of existence.
When waves of life seems to overtakes and you feel powerless and helpless,some positive tips can make a huge difference.
Hope For The Best
Be optimistic,life can be hard and stressful,do not assume the worst.It can gets dark sometimes but tell yourself "this too shall pass away" and truly the dark cloud will soon turns clear,that's a promise because nothing last forever.
Hope is not a feeling or an emotion rather is the knowledge of fact that all will be well.
The gospel define hope as "the assurance of things hope for, the conviction of things not seen"
There is no hope in this world, we do not have a perfect world,neither is hope in mankind, human will dissapoint you.Love yourself enough to hope on God in tough time and the God of hope Will fill you with all joy and peace.
You fall into grace and have peace when you let God.Tough time feel less of a burden because you truly find abundant joy in His presence.
Inspire yourself with beautiful soul praises,read the word of God,explore His promises,pray,worship.He is your shield, your strength, your fortress,your deliverer.He is ever faithful.Trust Him in tough time. We cheat ourself when we struggle, believing we can handle it on our own.
Look beyond the present situation to still be grateful. No matter how dark it seems,there are some things to be grateful for. Look for the wonders of the universe,we take for granted the oxygen He provides as our primary food to stay alive daily. Feel the sunshine,the starlight.Think deeply to realize that whatever happen,you are still blessed.
Shift Your Gaze
Do not allow the problem to bog you down,escape with a good book,a movie,phone someone, visit a friend. Pour your energy into something else to calm you. Immerse yourself in the good world around you, listen to music,draw and paint,walk in a garden or stroll in the middle of a fabulous city,just try to getaway from anxiety and depression.
Release it Out
Discuss with a loved one,seek support from friends and family to ease the weight and calm you,reaseach also confirm crying too release the negative chemicals. Scribble it out somewhere, let it stay in the wind, don't bottle it up alone.
Accept the Blow
Acceptance of what has happened reboot human to the reality of situation that cannot be change.
Acceptance is not resignation,we can still be pushing forward despite accepting there are things beyond our control.
Accepting put us on fast track to move on to a more meaningful life instead of expecting unrealistic change of things we cannot change.The beauty is right after accepting things you cannot change comes changing the things you can.
So much sunshine,stay happy.
