Let’s face it, sadness and emptiness is a given in this world. Everyone experiences it; everyone deals with it but the thing is not everyone deals with it as well as others do—and that is the problem.
It is a pity how people succumb to their negative emotions and let these get the better of them. They bury themselves deeper and deeper into their negativity until they have shut themselves so much that they no longer see anything positive or good not only about themselves but also in everything. This should not be the case.
It’s just a bad day; not a bad life. Let’s face it: we have good days and then we have bad ones as well—that is a given fact. But one bad day is not a reflection of your entire life, after all, what is a day compared to a lifetime? If you have one bad day, then why not just let that slide and trust that you are going to have a better ones on the following days ahead. Learn from your mistakes and remember not to commit the same errors again—in this way you will have a hold on how your day turns out.
Every day may not be good…but there is something good in everyday. No matter how awry everything goes, surely there will always be something to be thankful for every day. The problem with many people is that they only see and notice big things and they no longer notice those little and simple things that add to the beauty of the days that pass them by. It is always a good practice to be grateful to God, even for the most random things like that phone call from a friend that diverted your attention from your problems even for just a while; or that satisfying meal that you had. Before going to sleep at night, try to think of at least 10 things that you are grateful for—even random or mundane ones. This way, you will detach yourself away from thinking about the negative things and focus more on the good things in your life.
Anyone can give up; it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength. Giving up is usually the resort of cowards. I say don’t give up so easily. I believe that God will not give His people trials that they cannot handle—some people don’t and frankly, I think that’s just their selfish and fearful selves refusing to face things that are supposed to make them better. Hold on a little longer every day and do your best to cope with life, surely you will not lose anything by trying. It will build your character and when everything’s said and done, you will emerge scarred but definitely not defeated but all the more, wiser.
The best is yet to come; believe. Many people have achieved great heights in their lives because they believed and we should take our cues from them. We are all amazing individuals but it is also up to us to unleash our full potentials for the world to see. Good things just don’t drop down randomly onto our laps—we have to believe that we are capable of doing so much more and do some work ourselves in the process. But the first and most important step here is to believe. Don’t belittle your capabilities. Always Believe.
