This too will be a memory at some stage. For the most part IF you learn through the lesson and move on through it (grief is different). Some times it takes a loooong time to work out the lesson but often times it’s clear if you step back OR ask a trusted friend what they think the lesson is. And having that support network around you is vital. Have great friends and be a great friend.
I’m in the midst of moving house for the 21st time in my life and 9th time in my kids lives and I am really really REALLY over it. But I have to TRUST that God, the Universe, Source (whatever you choose to call ‘it’) has a plan, has something better in store for the kids and I. Sure there’ll be temporary pain as we pack and move and eagerly look for how the money will come to make it all happen but at the end of the day it will all happen as a matter of process and the means will come and we’ll all live happily ever after (but not before I probably whinge another 57 times and stress a bit.. that’s life)!
So whatever it is that YOU and yours are going through at the moment don’t stop. Don’t set up camp. Chin up and power on. You got this and you are NOT alone. Sometimes all we need is a mental mindshift. Something to jolt us out of our hypnotised depression, doldrums and depleted hope.
If you feel like you need to change things permanently in your life then check out our ebook Hat Trick Therapy: 3 ways to change your life at http://www.beyond-school.com.au/shop.html Sometimes one good resource is all it takes to put our lives on a new path. My favourite quote from the book:
By living mindfully and making conscious choices about what you say, what you think and what you put into your mind
will change your life, guaranteed!
Want a bit of a motivational kick in the butt right now? Check this video out, I love it.. give it the full 4 minutes.. you’ll be glad you did. I always am. For me anytime I’m feeling crap I get stuck into listening to some motivational youtube vids. .. they really do help.
My favourite line from the above video: “And you grew up good and wonderful… then the time came for you to be your own person then somewhere along the line you stopped being you…. and when things got hard you started looking for things to blame, like a big shadow. .. The world ain’t all rainbows and sunshine… it’s not about hard you get hit but about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, that’s how WINNING is done. Pain is temporary.”
Keep moving forward my friends. Look for the lesson, learn from it, take action and change your future today. It’s all up to you.. that’s both exciting and scary but totally filled with hope. You got this, because you and yours are worth it.
Until Sunday night, have a great week, chin up.. you’ve got this! You’ve survived all the other crappy days and you will survive this and THRIVE!
