That’s the super-short version of my advice for those moments when nothing seems to be going as planned — when everything you want seems out of reach.
Just be right where you are, with an open mind.
Let go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and sincerely appreciate it for everything that it is.
Easier said than done of course, especially when tragedy strikes. We’ve all coped with real tragedies, but let’s be honest: we create a lot of tragedy in our lives out of fairly minor incidents. Something doesn’t go exactly as planned, we freak out about it and let stress become us.
Truth be told, the biggest difference between peace and stress is attitude. It’s about how you look at a situation and what you decide to do with it. It’s remembering that there are no certainties in life — you don’t know exactly what the future will bring. So your best strategy for living is to make the best and most positive use of the present moment, even when it disappoints you…
Especially when it disappoints you!
Your life, with all its ups and downs, with all its unexpected twists and turns, has molded you for the greater good. Your life has been exactly what it needed to be up to this point. Don’t think you’ve lost time. Don’t think you haven’t arrived. It took each and every intricate and confusing situation you have encountered to bring you to right here, right now.
And if you have the courage to admit that you’re a little scared, the ability to smile even as you cry, the nerve to ask for help when you need it, and the wisdom to take it when it’s offered, then you have everything you need at this moment.
The only thing stopping you is your mind and the thoughts you entertain. Take a deep breath and re-center yourself. You’ve become a true master of your life when you learn how to master your focus. Value what you give your energy to. Focus your energy on what matters most — the present.
Some things to remember while moving forward…
It’s truly powerful and beautiful when a person’s intentions are genuine. Remember to do things for the right reasons, even when things don’t work out as planned. Your “why” must be bigger than the disappointments and challenges you face. As often as you can, remind yourself why! With a strong enough reason why, you’ll be able to do what’s required at any time and in any circumstance.
If somebody is working on themselves and changing for the better, it’s unnecessary to keep bringing up their past. People can change and grow. Take this to heart, and show yourself the same courtesy too. Oftentimes you don’t even realize that you’re blocking your own present blessings by holding on to the past. Start letting go and be present now.
Calmness is a human superpower. The ability to not overreact or take things personally keeps your mind clear and your heart at peace. It’s never too late to change your attitude about something you can’t change. Just decide to make the best of it. Take life day by day and be grateful for the little things. Let go of all the purposeless drama, aimless time-wasters, and mental clutter that keeps getting in your way.
Take care of your mind and the way you speak to yourself. Don’t let negative self-talk defeat you. Talk like you are blessed. Walk like you are blessed. Think like you are blessed. Work like you are blessed. And you will be, one way or another.
The wrong choices can bring us to the right places. The biggest failures often carry the best lessons. When you fail to get what you want, consider that it just might be a blessing in disguise. Seriously, be grateful that certain connections and situations didn’t work out. If you didn’t let go and learn, you would be stuck with false promises.
It’s funny how we outgrow what we once thought we couldn’t live without, and then we fall in love with what we didn’t even know we wanted. Eventually, you’ll end up where you need to be, doing the right things, alongside the right people. Patience and persistence are the key. But don’t forget to pause on occasion and appreciate how far you’ve come, so you can step forward again with grace.
Go ahead and sing out loud in the car with the windows down, dance in your living room with your family, stay up late laughing, paint your walls any color you want, and enjoy some sweet wine and chocolate cake. Go ahead and sleep in on clean white sheets, throw spontaneous parties, and read books so good you lose track of time. Just keep living and making God glad that he gave life to someone who loves and appreciates the gift.
