We all have those days when it seems everything happens at once; when it seems that everything that can come against you, does. It is easy to become consumed in the moment of overwhelming emotion that usually accompany these moments in life.
Make no mistake about it – those really are just moments. Proof positive is that life literally happens from moment to moment; therefore, while in the heat of the fire, it may feel as if there is a real possibility that you may get burned. But as life would have it, somehow, you continue to make it through.
This is why it is important to understand the very nature of why we must encounter obstacles, for without them, there is no way to measure our personal growth, strength, and most of all, our resiliency. In a nutshell, it is impossible to build the mental toughness you need to tackle and overcome the next challenge that life is patiently waiting to send your way if you never go through hard times. The kind of times that seem as if they will surely break you, nonetheless, you obviously have what it takes to continue to persevere through all the obstacles that have come up against you otherwise you wouldn’t be where you are right now.
This is to remind you that you are stronger than you think. As long as, with each passing day, you have the full understanding that every opportunity you are granted to wake up to see a new day is proof positive that you overcame anything that came against you the day before.
Use that fact alone to tackle the day before you, making sure to give thanks before you start your day and before you lay your head down to rest at night. Know that the strength will be given to you to continue on your journey for the next day to come. Always remember: tough times don’t last always, tough people do.
As always, I would love to hear your thoughts. Share below in the comments.
