Hello everyone its been awhile since I’ve posted but I’m back! This has been one of the most pressing weeks for me but somehow I’m making it. I know everyone believes in different things…God, the stars, Buddha…whomever or whatever you believe in hold fast to it. I haven’t been feeling so well the last few days but a moment ago I had to stop and just smile. Sometimes, you have to just stop the worrying and the stressing, and just take a second to reflect. I know that everything may not be working the way I feel they should, but I’m still blessed anyway. I realize that even when I’m at my lowest I’m still on top. I woke up this morning to six beautiful angels. If that doesn’t make you smile, I don’t know what can. I say that to say that it could be worse. Some people go through life alone, with no one in their life but I have my beautiful children who are keeping me going. As parents we can’t stop. No matter how tough life gets, they are the reason we keep moving, and doing our best to be our best selves. This morning I truly thank God for my children-my motivation. In the midst of it all, I still have so many reasons to smile. So no matter what you’re worried about right now, or whatever has you down take a minute and reflect on all the things that are working out for you. It may not be much, but be grateful anyway.
I’m sure you’ve heard people say “change is good”, I know I have. My question is how do you cope with change? At many points in our lives we are going to experience a shift or a change. Some are easy to accept, and move forward, while others really just have you questioning yourself. You wonder why the change occurred? is this going to be beneficial or detrimental to your life? How do you move forward with change? I find myself at this point today. I know why things have shifted the way they have, but it doesn’t mean I like it. Sometimes in order to move forward in your life you have to accept that with change comes a multitude of emotions and feelings. But after you’ve gone through all the back and forth of how and why, you will realize that you are still here. You are still surviving and moving another step forward. Everyday will not be easy, but the fact is you made it to the next day. It could be a good day, or it may be rougher than the one before but you are here. It’s all about finding the strength to keep moving towards your future. Sometimes change is temporary, other times permanent, but what I am learning is that how you handle the changes in your life determine there outcome. Some changes are necessary whether we realize it or not, and most of the time they occur to teach you a lesson-to prove to yourself just how strong you are. So today I am going to focus on my personal strength. I’m going to work on acceptance, and coping, and try my best to see the positive in the big shift. Find the positive in your change….among the negatives, there’s a positive outcome somewhere.
