Sometimes in life, we are dealt cruel and hard blows.
These mostly come when we are not expecting them. They can hurt us and sometimes question why we do things at all. However, we have to get back up, dust off the dirt and try again.
These times can make us challenge our beliefs. We have to question what is in our hearts and what is important to us. We need to know deep down that what we do is correct.
Sometimes problems can deviate away from what is good and honest in our lives and push us to places that we should not go.
We all get side tracked from time to time, from what we really want to do. As I said, we cannot plan for everything but we can be prepared.
One way to look at change in life is to think of the circles that we live in. Our characteristics in life come from the people around us. We have various and different influences to help us grow and improve. Those people are the ones we should talk to and help us understand what the best things to do are.
Here is a little exercise for you. Think of the 10 people you spend the most time with. If you have not heard of this activity already, what it means is that those 10 people make up whom you are. So, think about them for a moment, including their characteristics and what you admire.
When problems face us, the best thing to do is to get up and firstly accept the situation. You should look for positives in whatever you are facing. The small positive elements that you find work like toy building bricks in that over time those bricks build up to become something much bigger and so much more positive than previously thought.
