You will be a different person by the time your dark days pass. The future will be a better place if you become a better person because of your predicament. How can adversity change you for the better? Look at who and where you are and where you want to go. Learn. You’ve made mistakes. Every single human has; no person is perfect. Lean on the best counsel you can find. Be genuinely humble. Lift others. All around you today, and in all of your tomorrows, there are human beings who are in bad straits. Turn your scars into stars. Teach others what you’ve learned the hard way. What you do with your problem is far more important than what your problem does to you.
The message of Faith has been out there more than ever to get us through this difficult time.
We need Faith to let go of the past, let go of the unknown of the future and live in the present.
We can do so much during the next week and most likely a few more weeks to come at home to continue to help our bodies, minds, souls and work flourish-But you have to cherish the present!
I read “The Precious Present” and it helped me accept today with Faith and understanding to make my life the best it can be- today!
. “The present is what it is. It is valuable. Even I do not know why. It is already just the way it is supposed to be. When I see the present, accept the present, and experience the present, I am well, and I am happy. Pain is simply the difference between what is and what I want it to be.
If only ______ would happen, I would be super happy. Many people attempting to answer that ______with money, changing someone, changing the world, if only my boss, my family, my job, government, finances and the way I want it – I would be super happy. It becomes crystal clear that many of us have put our happiness on things beyond our control. Surrender your “if onlys” to your God and higher power. Stop acting like a victim waiting for things to change. Take a new active role in seeking happiness – because it’s here and it’s now. There are many areas of my life that I cannot change. What I can change is my attitude. Today I can accept my life as it is. I can be grateful and happy, here and now, with what I have. “Life holds so much – so much to be happy about always. Most people ask for happiness and conditions. Happiness can be felt only if you don’t set conditions” –Arthur Rubenstein
