We all get discouraged, don’t we? There are times when it seems that life will not get better, that our circumstances cannot possibly improve, that no one seems to understand what we think, feel, or believe. It can feel like we are in a black hole, unable to get out.
We all struggle, we all have hard times. But hard times are not for forever, even when they feel like they are. They are for this moment only. They seem to last an eternity, when actually, they are a brief interlude in this thing that we call life. They create bumps in our road, obstacles in our path, dark clouds in our skies.
But, they do not last forever, even when they feel like they do or that they will.
Have faith. Be patient. Pray. Believe. The sun will come out again.
You are loved, you love others, you are appreciated and embraced and coveted by someone, many people in this world. You are a person of worth and value; your soul possesses great strength, determination, and love. You are worthy. You are deserving of greatness.
Pick yourself up. Don’t lie there when you fall. Get back up and try again. Even when we feel too tired to try again. Keep going, one foot in front of the other. Don’t despair, because life does turn around again. Even when it feels like it doesn’t, or it won’t.
Stay present in this moment, JUST this moment. Life will get better for you. Life can be a challenge or a joy, or sometimes, both at the same time. But life is just a series of millions of moments. So, this is just one of those moments in time. In the next moment, your life could be changing into something you never dreamed.
Be strong. Have faith. Lean on others. Love yourself. See your own awesomeness.
Be. Live. Love. Rejoice.
